Want a better workout? Eat breakfast!

If you exercise in the morning, get up early enough to eat breakfast. That may mean eating at least an hour before your workout. Be well-fueled going into a workout. If you don't eat, you may feel sluggish or lightheaded when you exercise. If you plan to exercise within an hour after breakfast, eat a lighter breakfast or drink something such as a sports drink.
