Should you eat before or after exercising? ?!

Question: Should you eat before or after exercising!? !?
If I were going to exercise in the morning, would it be better for me to eat breakfast before I do it or after!?

I usually have an english muffin with peanut butter and a cup of hot tea for breakfast!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

have something light before; like a small bowl of cereal or a banana!. then eat your muffin or whatever afterwards!.

If you feel bloated while exercising then maby just have some tea before!? It depends on what kind of exercise your doing!. But never the less its allways good to have something in you to burn while your exervcising!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I exercise in the morning and I usually grab a banana as soon as I wake up!.

Anything heavier and it sloshes around in my tummy (no good!)!. Anything less than that and I'm ravenously hungry in the middle of the workout!.

At least eat a little something!. Your body needs fuel in order to exercise!.

It's best to eat after a workout!. This allows the nutrition to be supplied to the areas that have the most immediate need!. If you eat prior to working out, you should wait at least 2 hours to make sure your food is digested enough to have adequate blood supply for the stressed muscles!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I guess that depends on you!. Personally, I prefer to have something in my stomach but my husband never eats until after he works out!. I think your english muffin with peanut butter is a great way to fuel up for a work out, though!. It's all about how you feel!. Www@Answer-Health@Com

after, your body would need time to digest your food if you ate before you exercise!. but if you eat after your body has plenty of time to properly digest food !.plus this gives you nutrients that you may have lost during a physical activityWww@Answer-Health@Com

If you are trying to build muscle, eat both before and after!. When eating after, eat w/in 1/2 hr of exercise!. I prefer a protein shake before a workout, then a protein shake after plus eating something!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

It is good to have something light on your stomache before exercisingWww@Answer-Health@Com

I've heard good things from both sides of this issue!.

Eat half the english muffin before, half after!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
