    1. Flaxseed

    While great for your body (and weight loss), flaxseed is full of fiber , which could impede your workout efforts by causing gas and/or bloating.

    You should limit the amount of fiber you take in 2 hours before and after exercising. In addition to flaxseed, stay away from fiber supplements, bran, and high-fiber breads and opt for a mixture of protein and carbohydrates instead right before your workout.

    2. Hummus

    Don’t get us wrong, we love healthy hummus just as much as you do, but you may want to stay away from it right before a workout.
