The body works 24 hours not just while you are in the gym working out to build and recover.

A lot of time when people are trying to lose weight they only think of
cutting calories. When it comes to nutrition, nutrient timing can help you. Preworkout snacks will give you fuel to make it through that workout, burn more fat, and sculpt more muscle. Here are a few quick and tasty snacks to have 1-1.5 to 30 minutes before you get at it! Try a couple of these easy quick snacks note that it may be a little trial and error depending on what type of workout you are doing.

Apple Almond Butter Wrap – Spread 1 tablespoon of almond butter on a whole wheat wrap, add apple slices on top and fold over.
