Do you go before or after dinner?
He has been to a gym
Treadmills are effort, as I am full of food. I'm going to go before food to day and see what happens. If i'm not back on later, assume it killed me.
have a light snack half an hour or so before exercising. If you go after, leave at least an hour, preferably 2 before exercising. Personally, I try and go before dinner. Protein, innit.
snack before, dinner after. Some people think you should eat as soon after exercise as possible (hence those guys who pick up a protein shake the second they finish their benchpresses) but, y'know, fuck that.
You wanna get some energy drink/small carb based snack, then go gym, get mach/tonk/hench, then go home and load up on protein. BEEFCAKE!
I reckon the banana before I went was my saving grace here.
coming out your assium
Are you going for aerobic exercise or weight training?
If weight training, eat before and after. You should always consume at least 25g of protein within 1/2 hour of finishing weight training if you are planning on bulking up.
If aerobic, it doesn't matter.
In either case, you have to give yourself a minimum of 45 minutes to digest food before exercising.
i went before dinner
and then straight to the nandos next door afterwards. that's how you want to do it.
