Definitely try to stay hydrated. I'd drink about 20 ounces of water an hour before starting to work out. Eat a small snack with carbs that can be digested quickly. I suppose that's where the protein energy bars can go. And a balanced meal about 2 hours before exercising. At least, that's what I used to do when I ran a lot. It seemed to work alright for me.

Drink water whenever you are thirsty, i think pasta is good because it slowly releases energy

I heard that Weetabix is a really good food to have a little while before working out as it's meant to release it's energy slowly.
Keep hydrated too.

Just make sure you eat lots of carbs. They're an excellent source of energy and their release is slow and longer lasting. Once they're all used to your body moves on to using Protein as energy. So you might want to think of consuming some Protein rich foods as well. Gatorade is also an instant source of carbs, so keep one with you when participating in physical activity.

Pasta, toast, fruit, bagels, lean meat (bacon, sasuage, chicken) NOT FAST FOOD, yogourts, jacket potatoes, crumpets, sport bars, rice anything with carbs, it will give you energy.

Energy gels are really good for energy.
