​Here is how experts map out their workouts and meals to achieve their fitness goals.

​1. Pre-workout foods

​Bananas are the go-to food for pre-workout regimes as they are full of potassium and magnesium, which help to replenish minerals and provide natural sugars to fuel your workout.

​2. Eat a rainbow

​Choose a wide variety of fruits so that you get the best range of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

​3. Stay hydrated

​Staying hydrated and replenishing lost fluids post your exercise routine is a no-brainer. You can also take small sips of water during the workout.

​4. Beyond water

​To increase your fluid intake, you can include drinks like thin buttermilk, coconut water, lemon water with salt and cold soups.

​5. Plan your diet well

​Your pre and post-workout meals should be planned depending on the workout type, duration, intensity of the workout and your body type.

​6. Let muscles recover

​To help your muscles recover, it is important to eat a meal, which has both carbohydrates and proteins, within two hours of your workout.

​7. Be realistic

​Don't eat junk and then think that you will burn off the calories in your workout.
