Breakfast Before Workout?

Just a question: what do you do about breakfast if you work out in the morning? I usually work out from 6-7:30 am. If I have breakfast before I work out, then by 10am, I am starving. But, I have heard that eating first thing is good because it gets your matabolism going.

On the other hand, if I eat after I work out, I sometimes feel weary during my workout. I would love thoughts, advice, suggestions, etc.

simple: do both! if you are working out for 90 minutes, you should really give your body some fuel to burn afterwards. have a small breakfast before you work out, and a snack soon after the workout!

Recently read that before a short workout, have something light like a piece of fruit. For your longer workout, add a bit of protein to keep your stomach fuller.

Definitely bring a small snack if you are starving by 10!

Just read an article yesterday (can't remember where, but I'm going to look for it) stating you should eat something before your workout so you can tap into those energy stores, but you also need to eat something within 2 hours after your workout to replace nutrients and give your body something to repair tissue.

There may be something to the recommendations to eat prior to an early-morning workout, though I personally do not do it. I get up at more or less 4:00 AM and get in a workout. Depending on the day, the workout can vary from a a bit of yoga, to a five-mile run, to 1-1/2+ hours of heavy weightlifting. It is usually 6:30 - 7:00 before I'm able to sit down to breakfast.

When I do sit down to breakfast, however, it is my main meal of the day. It consists of oatmeal, soybeans, milk, walnuts, and 1-1/2 to 2 pounds of assorted fruit. It will add up to 1200 or more calories, or about half of my daily total.

Don't know if this approach will appeal to anyone else, but it works OK for me. If anyone wants additional info, you can find my public log in the blog section under dwillard.

If I'm doing a longer run...

...of 8 miles or more, I'll eat 1/2 c oatmeal before, then I'll eat more oatmeal afterwards. I used to go out running without eating and found myself more fatigued during the run. I also make a point of drinking Gatorade before, during and afterwards.

Oatmeal is a good breakfast-- easy on the digestive system. How about a fruit smoothy, an apple or a banana?

Not too much, as you don't want to get a stomach cramp, but you do need to fuel yourself or you will "bonk" about 15-20 minutes into your work-out.

Occasionally, I will also use those "energy gel" packets (basically carbohydrates) to keep myself from "bonking" during my work-out, but I prefer "real" foods, if I can.

eating before exercise

I heard that if you want to dig into your fat stores don't eat before an early 6,7,8am workout. I did this for a while during the years I weighed the least. I didn't hinder energy for me, sometimes I'd drink a little coffee before hand.

If you do eat breakfast before the workout, if you have to, eat from the left:

something small

I agree with what alot of people said about eating something small or nothing at all. I used to do bootcamp workouts at 5:30am and experimented with different things.. i tried eating just a banana one day--felt sick, just a piece of toast-felt okay, just green tea-felt great!
So when i did them i would just have green tea..just sip a travel mug full of it ..not gulp it down. Then during the workout I would have some energy. After the workout I would come home and either go back to bed for an hour or make breakfast right away. I found I lost weight and gained a decent amount of muscle doing this approach. however everyone is different. My friend would have to eat a bagel or something before the workout or else she couldn't function.
Experiment and see what works for you! good luck!

Yes, always! If I workout without eating, I bonk.

Has it really been three years since the
  • Wholesale Jerseys last World Baseball Classic? As we approach the second-ever World Baseball Classic odds, it is never too soon to start examining the power players. Keep in mind that after this WBC
  • NFL Shop , they will only come once every four nfl nike jerseys Here's the four major players in the upcoming 2009 WBC:

    United States +150 In baseball,cheap stitched nfl jerseys being an unknown team helps you because you become harder to scout and harder to prepare for
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • . Take a chance with the Cubans again. They take this tournament very seriously. As far as World Baseball Classics lines go, stitched nfl jerseyslook for the U.S. team to be a real underdog heading into the 2009 tournament
  • Atlanta Falcons
  • ?they might be worth a bet to win it all if the price is right.

    The Yankees underachieved in the 2006 World Baseball Classic and you can be assured that they will make some concerted effort to right the ship
  • Baltimore Ravens
  • . They boasted a fairly talented roster but neglected starting pitching, which was eventually the difference.

    Japan +800

    This is a pretty penny for a team that won the entire tournament in 2006. They are worth a flier here because keep in mind
  • Buffalo Bills
  • , for the most part, cheap nfl jerseysthe Japanese team is an unknown commodity. A lot of people are making assumptions and although the public perceives they are more flukey,cheap nfl jerseys than good, stitched nfl jerseysthe reality is that this is a stellar team. We're starting to get a taste with Ichiro
  • Carolina Panthers
  • , Daisuke Matsuzaka and Akinori Otsuka, but they are more than capable of winning it all again. Definitely a team to consider when you bet on the World Baseball Classic.

    Cuba +1000

    Speaking of great unknowns, it doesn't get much more mysterious than the Cuban team
  • CFL Jersey
  • . This team lost in the finals to Japan in 2006,cheap stitched nfl jerseys disappointing sportsbook diehards everywhere. The Cubans have a squad full of potential MLB All-Stars.stitched nfl jerseys cheap Last time around, the team was worried that a number of them might defect
  • Cleveland Browns
  • ,stitched nfl jerseys even though that that never turned out to be the case.

    Dominican Republic +175

    Go ahead, argue with a team that has Albert Pujols
  • Chicago Bears
  • , Alfonso Soriano, Jose Reyes and David Ortiz.stitched nfl jerseys cheap The sportsbooks certainly won't be debating it
  • Cincinnati Bengals
  • .cheap stitched nfl jerseys Interestingly enough, stitched nfl jerseys cheapthis team doesn't have as much starting pitching as you might think and if the US team brings some good starters, they should be able to beat this team. Bartolo Colon and Francisco Liriano led this starting rotation in 2006. They have some work to do but they can clearly outhit anyone.

    It is always good to do the exercise before your breakfast. A glass of juice or water is not a bad idea before breakfast but a full breakfast meal before your exercise make you tired after the work out. Thanks.

    I think taking breakfast before workout is not good. It will reduce the benefit of doing workouts. I recommend all to take breakfast only after doing workouts and taking one hour rest. Keep updating more useful information regarding this topic. loss of libido
