We’ve all heard that eating a banana before a workout can prevent cramps, but cantaloupe is way better!
1 cup of cantaloupe has:
- Potassium: 475mg. More than a small banana. Potassium keeps electrolytes balanced when you sweat. It helps prevent sweating out too much salt when you work out also, preventing cramping.
- Magnesium: 25mg. Potassium needs magnesium to help it in and out of sells for muscles to work.
- Water: cantaloupe is rich in fluid, helping prevent dehydration
- Deliciousness: cantaloupe is so yummy!!
Give it a try! Have a cup of cantaloupe ~30 minutes before your next hour long workout session and see how it makes you feel! I’d love to hear if it works for you!
