    eating before training






    i was just wondering how long i should be waiting after i eat dinner before i go to the gym... since i'm back to working set hours now, the only time i can train is in the evening... but i don't like being at the gym too late so i usually come home, eat dinner and go... should i be waiting a minimum amount of time after i eat before i go to the gym? thanks

    Same here. The only time I wait is I'm only going to do cardio. Then I get a stomach ache.

    I always eat something about an hour or so before I work out!

    For me its whey and natural PB or almonds 30 min before training. I could never do it on food or a totally empty tummy.

    I'm with dg806, give it an hour or so for the food to digest, it does depend on what your eat though. If it's slow burning carb and protein then 1 hr - 1hr 30mins, if it fats then 30 minutes.

    Agreed,about an hour after eating,usually whey,apple and I like GP's peanut butter idea.Maybe a banana on a banana day that is.The muscles need as much blood as they can get while training and can get sluggish while digesting.

    Well when I don't eat before the training I'm weak.
    If I eat within 30 minutes before training I can push harder...
