I never eat in the morning before training it is not fun to lose content of your stomach when you exercise hard. Few years ago I had to eat a bit of bread before training to avoid stomachache. In the afternoon I always eat something small like banana before my training
Agree with Tom.
Generally, I don't eat before exercising but it does depend how hungry I am. If I do eat I have a very light snack before but wait until afterwards before eating full meals.
If Im doing cardio I usually won't eat have breakfast. Even without eating I have the energy for a 10+ mile workout. I'll get some protein in the middle of the workout if I feel I need it. I only do that once a week so I dont know if it would work on a daily basis.
Actually you hurt your body by not eating before.. Eat something light i usually just have a protein shake and fruit.. Your muscles need the protein for the workout.. Ive seen.people pass out because they did not eat enough or at all
I have seen conflicting information on this. One school of thought suggests that you burn fat for energy if you work out before eating and another says you put your body into starvation mode to hang onto the fat. What say you guys?
It does not matter cause if u have heard of interminent fasting you will have to fast for 20 to 30 hours but u can drink water during ur fasting time u must workout
I work out 6 days a week. Don't eat anything before I workout. working out is usually the first thing I do in the morning after brushing my teeth. I usually drink Cellucor M5 or C4 for workout energy right after or during my warmup. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Super important. Then I eat Breakfast (Oatmeal mostly) and drink a Protein Shake in that order. I am not overweight, or unhealthy, but I am toning for lean muscle mass with slight weight gain. My goal is 175 lbs of pure muscle with 6% to 10% body fat by years end. Hope that helps.
I find it alright, because I do a 10k daily b4 breakfast.
I personally seem to run out of energy real quick. My performance is not as good if I excersice on an empty stomach than excersicing after eating something. But maybe that's coz I'm sorta new to excersicing? Btw I usually wait for a few hours after having my meal of course.
I think you should try both and see what works best for you..everyone's different.
