Regarding breakfast and working out. What is recommended, to eat before or after working out?

  • Just wondering what is best to do. For the past 6 months since I started getting fit, I have been eating breakfast after working out. I would also have a protein shake right after working out and then have my breakfast. Just looking for advice on this matter.

    I've looked into this a lot and it seems there is no real answer. Some believe that working out without eating helps burn more fat but apparently that's not true. I like to eat after since that's when the muscles need it the most.

    As long as you have enough energy to have a productive session stay with what works for you.

    I recommend something light and carb rich before a workout for energy and then protein and carbs after. Keep fat low for both meals and avoid things that are going to feel heavy in your stomach while working out. Have a great workout!

      HI Thrivefit,

      Thanks for the advice. I started doing that a couple of days ago and so far working for me. Thanks! :)
