Re: Eat before or after...

Cardio in the morning before eating burns stored fat. Then for an hour or so after your workout your body will burn up a healthy breakfast. It's like the golden hour.

Gotta be the worst advice I've ever read.

Cardio on empty stomach first thing in the AM = ok.

Weight training on an empty stomach = trip to hospital from falling down and smacking your head due to low blood sugar levels.

If someone is working out with weights, doing 30-45 mins of cardio daily and they are not losing weight there is only one place to look: diet. Generally, eating too much BUT not eating enough can also stall/prevent weight loss.

Its really not all that complicated to lose weight. For men, getting to that 10-12% BF range is easy. Its going beyond that where it becomes difficult. For women, it is a little more difficult given your hormone fluctuations and the fact that your baseline calories are so low to begin with but it is more than doable.

Re: Eat before or after...

Just don't eat EVER!!!!!!!!!!! Then, if you are starving, have water and suck on lemons! Everyone has their own theories. I am a certified nutrionist and trainer. We need to take into account a TON of things. Don't just listen to everyone here....no offense guys and girls...but if you are serious, I need stats on you. Are you new to exercising? Are you overweight? Any medical conditions? I have an amazing energy pill called "Venom". I have never used pills for weight loss but these work amazingly. Sustained energy, appetitie suppressants and such better workouts. If you need more info. on working out or diet, drop me a line. You can workout for hours a day, if your diet sucks, give it up!

Great point! When you eat is important, but not in terms of fat loss so much as being able to maintain your energy throughout your workout.

For those who think that not eating before/after a workout will make you burn more fat, look at it this way: through your day to day activity, you're going to burn a specific amount of calories a day. On average, I personally burn 2223 calories a day. Now, if I eat 2223 calories, I'm going to burn the ones I eat, and if I do rely on stored fat throughout part of the day, I'm just going to store the energy left over as fat at the end of the day - so I'm right back where I started. But, if I only eat 2000 calories a day, then my body will have to find the other 200 calories somewhere else - meaning stored fat. And there you have it, plain and simple. It doesn't matter so much when you eat in terms of fat loss. It matters how much you eat. 'Cause at the end of the day, you're going to burn off a certain amount of energy regardless of when you eat.

(By the way, if you want to know exaclty how many calories you personally burn each day, don't rely on calculators - it varies from person to person. Here's how you do it: weigh yourself at the same time each day for 3 days straight to determine your true weight. Then, write down every calorie you take in over the next two-three weeks - every single calorie. At the end of those two-three weeks, weigh yourself again at the same time of day for three days straight to get your true ending weight. Now, add all the calories you have consumed over the course of your 2-3 weeks. If you gained weight over the trial, add 3500 calories to your total for every lb gained. If you lost weight, subtract 3500 calories for every lb lost. Take this total and divide by the total number of days during your trial. The end result will be the average number of calories you burn each day. )

Nutrition In A Nutshell

Eating and Playing

Did you know that food stays in your stomach for four hours? From there, it goes into the small intestines where digestive juices break it down further for an additional four hours. An incredible amount of energy is needed for the entire process of digestion, which in total takes about twelve hours!

Keep the first four hours in mind because this is where the problem lies when activities are concerned. We all know (I hope) that eating and swimming just don’t mix. Well this is the same for any other activity: bicycling, weight lifting, jogging, etc. There just isn’t enough blood to go around and do everything at once. So be aware of what’s going on in your body when you decide to eat knowing that physical demands are about to occur.

The same holds true when children are fed just before playing sports. I’m sure you’ve seen it time and time again as I have, the kids sitting off to the sides not participating in the game because they don’t feel too well after playing for a little while. This is especially true with soccer. You know the usual complaints; i.e. cramps heartburn, sore legs, headache, tiredness etc.

All of these can be attributed to eating too close to exercise. Glucose levels fluctuate, Hydrochloric acid temporarily subsides and digestion stops beginning a sort of domino effect. If you’d like to avoid all this simply do not eat anything a minimum of 2 hours beforehand. This will ensure maximum protection against these problems, and allow for more energy and strength for play.

One thing that is needed before, during, and after play is fluid! The very best of course would be water. 100% juice is very good also. I’m not talking about “Fruitopia”, “Gatorade”, or “High C”; I mean straight unadulterated juice without added sugar. Labels are misleading, read the ingredients. If its got sugar in it or you need a chemist to read it…put it back! You want to talk about mood swings and tiredness this is the stuff that does it. The brain is sensitive to glucose fluctuations and some of us are extremely sensitive!

So play it safe and hold off on eating too close to activities and avoid sugar for longer and harder play.

Re: Eat before or after...

My personal trainer ( that I don't have time to work out with anymore) has always told me not to eat before because then you are only burning what you just ate instead of body fat.

Re: Eat before or after...

You can’t burn off what you Just ate because your body has not metabolized it yet.
