Most athletes know that before a long training or running session, you need to have good stocks of glycogen. So, what are the right snacks to consume before training? Here are seven to avoid:

1. LEGUMES Legumes, like lentils or beans, are an important source of fiber, but must be avoided before training because they can cause gastrointestinal issues or even diarrhea.

2. WHITE SUGAR Sugary and caloric foods can ruin performance because they lower blood sugar levels rapidly (hypoglycemia). This causes fatigue, loss of energy and headaches. Before a run, rather eat quinoa or oats.
