    What's the correct order?

    Should food be taken before exercising or after exercise? According to my understanding, after eating food, it needs to get digested and ao a good amount of blood is in circulation around your intestine.

    Therefore, exercising at that time is not recommended.

    However, I read that many people eat before exercising.

    What is the time frame that you use to space your meals and exercises?

    I eat some protein & fats (eggs) like 1.5 hours before the workout, and immediately after I take my BCAA's and eat some carbs (oats, bananas, honey). I train in the morning btw.

    I do not eat directly before my workout. maybe a preworkout or drinking EAA's/BCAA's before or during my workout instead of just water. After my workout within the first 30 minutes I try and get in some protein/carbs.

    Also depends on what time it is.
    If its when I first get up I take my supps with some type of drink or protein drink then off to the gym fasted.

    Re: What's the correct order?

    So I see there is still confusion. What do gym master say and what are their reasons?

    My thinking is if you want to loose weight you may exercise on virtually empty stomach because you want to burn the excess that you have (you may feel weak though).

    If you want to build then carbs..exercise..proteins should be the order for obvious reasons unless you want me to spell it out.

    Your opinions?

    Yes. agreed about eating a 2-3hrs before. I think that is great timing! I don't eat immediately before Working out. Never goes over well for me. Indigestion, sick at the stomach. So fourth. Also don't like the feel of a full stomach ,especially if cardio is involved!

    Re: What's the correct order?

    I feel as if this is something that will be and could be argued until everyone is blue in the face and there will never be any real agreement. I have heard it all and still have no idea, but I have found that personally I like eating shortly after.

    Re: What's the correct order?

    My understanding with the digestive system is that it needs a rest period. I have issues with my digestive system that is why I am conscious. After eating a meal, you are not supposed to do heavy physical activities. For me, even lying in bed after eating is a no-no because my gastritis may act up. For a workout, the doctor said that I should give my digestive system 2 hours for respite before and after a workout. At least I am spared of indigestion and other abodminal issues in connection to my meal and workout.

    Re: What's the correct order?

    The key point is the time and what food to eat, it's better to have some carbs or protein like whole grain toast, chicken breast, fruits, digest for an hour before work out
