Exercise & Meals

Do I need to change my meal plan?

Most people do not need to add extra carbohydrates to their meal plan unless they are exercising for more than an hour at a time. For those who are trying to lose weight, adding extra food to your meal plan may actually cancel out the calories burned during exercise.

To maximize your energy for activity, it is important to stick to your usual meal plan. Focus on making healthy choices and filling your plate with a balance of non-starchy vegetables, fruit, whole grains, low- or non-fat dairy, healthy fats, and lean meats.
