    What to Eat Before, During, and After Exercise

    Whether you're a "weekend warrior" trying to stay fit or an athlete training for a marathon, what you eat can affect how you perform. Eating right can give you the edge to help energize your workout or reach that 26th mile. But which foods are best for fitness activities, and which should you avoid? With so many sports drinks, bars, powders, and supplements to choose from, how do you know which are best? Or can you skip the expensive supplements and get everything you need from a well-planned diet ?
    For answers to these questions and more, WebMD turned to sports nutrition expert Christine Rosenbloom, PhD, RD, CSSD, author and nutrition professor at Georgia State University in Atlanta.
