About Jennifer Worley
Jennifer obtained her B.A. in English from Ohio State University and Master of Arts in Sociology at the University of Cincinnati. She earned a certificate in plant-based nutrition from eCornell's T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. She has over 20 years of experience teaching college students. Her goal is to apply her knowledge of plant-based eating and her teaching and mentoring skills to help people transition to a plant-based diet.
When routine blood work came back with elevated inflammatory and disease markers in her early 40s, Jennifer tried a mostly plant-based diet. Within a few months, her numbers improved. Although she remained vegetarian, she struggled to maintain a consistently healthy diet. After being diagnosed with and overcoming triple-negative breast cancer, she has adopted a whole food plant-based diet along with daily exercise and mindfulness strategies to optimize her health. She has a special interest in coaching cancer survivors and patients.
What can you do to maintain your energy level to push through longer or tougher workouts or beat your PR at a race or event? Paying attention to the quality and timing of nutrition before you exercise can optimize your physical performance.
The goal of eating before a workout or event is to restore glycogen, the carbohydrates that supply your immediate energy needs during exercise. To get that immediate energy, the nutrients in your pre-workout meals should come primarily from carbohydrates. Protein takes longer to digest and does not provide a quick energy boost, so limit the amount of protein you consume before exercise. Fiber and fats should also be minimized, as these can create stomach upset.
