HI Mike

Best to ask Dietdoc this question, but anyhow a high carbohydrate, light snack is best 2 hrs before working out, such as sportsdrink, a muffin, 2 slices of bread with honey or jam, a low-fat muffin or a handful of jelly babies. After the workout, try to eat soonish, again replace your carbohydrates, but add some protein as well, a sandwich with cheese and tomota, biltong and a sportsdrink, a fruit yoghurt, a bowl of cereal with milk.

Hope this helps!
