You skip food with lots of calories and try to get a perfect body shape, but if you do not eat food before a workout, you are doing it wrong. Food before workout determines how much muscles you will gain during your workout and when you will get tired. If you have had a nice amount of proteins and carbohydrates, you will get bigger muscles, and you will not get tired early. When you eat before workout your blood sugar level increases which do not cause muscle fatigue. If you get food incorrect proteins and carbohydrates in the nice amount, you will be able to work out harder.
