The Perfect Gym Date

Some people think that Dates are only for vegans or people on the Paleo Diet looking for a sugar alternative, but did you know that these little superfruits will give you major gains in the gym?! Dates are packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals that give you long-lasting energy and a quick recovery. Here’s how one little Date fruit can change your entire workout game.

Pump It Up
The sugar in Dates is not like other sugars. Because the sugar is natural and unprocessed and combined with the fiber that is also found in the fruit, it provides steady, long-lasting energy to fuel your workout. Dates also have a low glycemic index meaning the glucose is slowly released into your bloodstream rather than all at once. 

With the Keto Diet now in trend, many people are scared to consume food that is high in sugar or carbohydrates. However, if you try doing any high-intensity workouts or build muscle without carbs it is like trying to drive a car without any fuel. In order to get the most out of your workout add a few Dates to your pre-workout routine!

Won’t Cramp Your Style 
Everyone knows that consuming electrolytes is important when pushing your body to the max. Potassium is an essential electrolyte that contributes to good heart health and helps to prevent muscle cramps and spasms that often happen during exercising. This is because while you are working out, you lose potassium through your sweat which is why people often drink Gatorade. Believe it or not, one single Date has more potassium than a serving of Gatorade and one serving of Dates has more than double the amount of potassium than a banana does! Gatorade has about the same amount of processed, refined sugar as a soda does, so throw out the Gatorade and have yourself a Date!

Recovery Made Easy
Now that you know how Dates can benefit you before and during a workout, don’t forget to eat a few after your workout as well! In order to help your muscles recover and prepare your body for the next workout you need to refuel with a combination of protein and carbs. Our Hot Date Smoothie is the perfect combination of both and will have your body feeling replenished and refreshed!

If you haven’t noticed yet, we think Dates are great! They’re especially amazing for all of the athletes and hard workers out there who need something quick to refuel their tanks. Try adding Dates to your smoothies or making Power Balls out of them for a fast convenient snack. Make sure to eat a lot of Dates for your best workout ever!
