Unless you are training for a marathon, you do not need extra calories before working out. Also, be mindful of when you eat before working out. If you eat two hours before exercising, your blood flow will be focused on digestion instead of on keeping muscles warm and bringing oxygen to your body. This can result in muscle cramps and nausea.
