Having an energy bar/drink before a cardio workout

energy barBy doing so, you only end up burning the calories you just had before hitting your existing fat cells, which is counterproductive if you're trying to lose weight. Remember that energy bars and drinks were designed with endurance athletes in mind, therefore may have hidden sugars and fat which give them a high calorie content.
Solution: Instead, have a low-calorie snack about an hour before the workout (allowing enough time for digestion), such as an apple and a half-cup of low-fat yogurt or cottage cheese. You won't sacrifice energy for the workout, and those minimal calories from the preworkout snack will be burned quickly during a 20- to 30-minute, moderate- to high-intensity cardio session.
