dont do excersises with in 20-30mins after eating. true or false?

15 Sep
Only reason id say not to is because its a lot harder to fully work out with a full stomach. I like to do.it before breakfast and because I'm trying to ggain weight i like to eat a lot afterwards. In the army we aways do PT first thing in the morning

I'm not a fitness pro but id say keep ur meal small but u should eat after being that ur working out burns a lot a nutrients u need. If u don't eat afterward u may become lightheaded and weak. Today because my baby was up and i was hungry i just ate a peanut butter sandwich wated bout 1hr for her to sleep and ate a full meal afterwards

Depends on the size of the meal. For women its great to workout in the mornings especially on an empty stomach. Great metabolic boost throughout the day.

Because of my tight schedule I sometimes eat a few minutes before I train. I have always been fine. Sometimes you might not feel so good if it was a particulary heavy meal but it goes away.

Try it and see how you feel. (you're not gonna get a cramp and drown)

One reason I don't do it is it just feels bad. Like I could puke.

I don't exercise when I'm very hungry though either. I eat a very light meal sometimes, or some fruit.  I need the blood sugar so I don't get all light-headed and weird.

Some ppl will talk about burning your body's energy reserves (fat) is better than burning the food energy from what you just ate, so that is why they don't eat before, but really your caloric intake, what you eat all day, simply has to be less calories than what you burn all day, that I'm not sure if it really matters when, though.  Maybe... But it seems suspicious.

I always eat a meal before i workout. The very least i 'eat' is a proteinshake. For the simple reason that energy from the muscles is easiest to obtain for the body. And i want to give it another source of energy to take from.
