    Pre-workout sups on empty stomach

    I have noticed that No-xplode recommends that you take the product on an empty stomach. I am taking White Flood right now and I haven't noticed that recommendatin (not to say its not there). I have definitely noticed a better results taking both sups on an empty stomach (although it doesn't seem to matter nearly as much with WF), but this also usually leads to low blood sugar for me half-way through the workout. Having a barbell full of weight above your face is not a good time to get dizzy, weak, or light-headed.

    I try to eat something right before I take the floor, but the sugar never seems to hit me quick enough.

    Anyone else notice this problem?

    The reason for taking it on an empty stomach is for increased blood flow to your muscles. If your busy digesting food that is taking blood away from your muscles during your lift. If your getting light headed/dizzy maybe you can juggle your eating schedule to better fit your workouts.

    Personally, I try to eat a meal atleast an hr before i take my preworkout, then I'm in the gym 15mins later. I know a lot of preworkouts recommed 45mins- 1hr before you lift, but I prefer not to wait that long.

    I actually find the same thing - and it lasts all day. If I take a pre-workout supplement without anything in my stomach, I'll carry that lightheaded, dizzy feeling with me all day even after I do eat.
    (granted, I'm all of 106 lbs and sensitive to stimulants, but it is the same issue)
    I fix it by just having something small, like a boiled egg or a half cup of oatmeal.
