Eating before or after exercise?
Is it better to eat before (like 2-3hrs) before or after exercise? The problem I'm having is I do fitness classes/Gym in the evening and often the classes are around 8pm so by the time I eat it's quite late, I don't want to feel sick by eating before though and I only get in from work about 6pm.
Is it really bad to eat after exercise?

I heard it is best to eat after exercise because your body is still burning calories from the workout giving your metabolism a boost. I try to eat afterwards.

What about a little of both?
A snack before you work out, and a snack after?
Then make your main meal lunch...it's pretty common in Greece to eat a full meal at lunch (the main cooked one) and then a light snack around 6-11 pm. And they're pretty skinny XD
So maybe your schedule can be like..snack around 5-6 PM, work out, and then a small snack again around 9-11 . and since it's small your stomach will digest most of it before you sleep and it won't just 'sit there'.

I eat dinner late (9 or 10 pm most nights) because of my boyfriend's work schedule and my own. We eat when we're hungry and when it is convenient for us. Do what works for you. Ultimately it's calories in-calories out. I've lost about 75 lbs and I don't follow any "Don't eat at night" rules.

I hate to say this, but I have a slice of toast and eggbeaters with cheese about 1/2 hour before I do my 2 hour workout every morning, which includes a 2 mile run, and I have no problems at all. I heard that if you want to maximize the caloric burn to workout first thing in the morning before you eat, but I just can't do that, I got to eat something. And you are right, it is all about how many calories you ate that 24 hour period, not the time of day!
