I am in the process of loosing weight, I have been trying to combine healthy eating with regular weight exercising and cardio workouts, the problem is at the moment I seem to have no energy when I get to the Gym.

My fitness level has increased greatly but my energy reserve is nil. I know the types of carbs. to eat for slow energy release but I am a bit concerned that my body might call on these carbs for energy and not touch my rather large FAT reserve!?

Can anyone give me some tips on what I should be eating before working out to give some energy (at the moment a bannana is all I eat before a workout )

After my workout I eat a fairly high protein meal - if that helps?

Hope some one can help
