    How long can you wait after eating to workout?

    What's the maximum time you can wait before working out? I've always believed it to be one hour and 15 minutes and I've felt that if you go past that you will just burn muscle from working out and that you should just eat again and wait another hour so you have carbs to burn.

    If I eat a full meal I usually wait 1.5 hours. Protein shake an hour. THat way when I take my pwo it hits me harder. The carbs you burn when working out should be stored from your previous meals and will help you get through your workout. Eating them an hour before your workout unless they are really simple carbs wont help much.
    KΣ for life.

    If I just eat something small like a regular hotdog or sandwich, I head out to the gym 30min later...15min drive, so maybe 45min max.
    If I eat a big meal, I dont' do workout for maybe 1.5-2hrs.

    But I think you're over thinking things though.

    I'll wait 30 minutes to one hour.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    Depends on what I eat. If it's a quick shake, then 30-45 minutes. Whole meal, 1.5 hours.. yes, I time it.. only because I like to remove ANY possible variables, and it actually works out perfect by the time I'm done with my workout, it's my next scheduled meal anyways

    Muscle synthesis occurs for about 48 hours, so you will not burn your muscle on an empty stomach. Don't use the same information Pro bodybuilders use unless your actually roiding up and taking them. As for a meal before working out. Personally it depends on how big, Complex stuff like rice will take longer, simple like fuits will take a shorter time.

    Metabolism might playa big part too. I ate 2 burritos today and just waited 1 hour. I felt great after the hour and didnt feel full.

    Old thread...

    To anyone still curious, I'd say the key to this thread is understanding the difference between blood glucose levels and glycogen. Also one should note that fat loss occurs when insulin is low and glucagon is high. If you want to have a good fat burning workout, don't spike your insulin immediately before. But have glycogen stored so that you can have an effective performance.

    surprised how many people can just eat and go ... I would be barfing all over the squat rack :/
    for me: minimum 4 hours after a small meal... or lifting the next morning on an empty stomach after a big evening meal...I really like to do my pigging out after the gym not before!

Personally it depends on how big, Complex stuff like rice will take longer, simple like fuits will take a shorter time.

    Metabolism might playa big part too. I ate 2 burritos today and just waited 1 hour. I felt great after the hour and didnt feel full.
    Glad you felt the need to revive this thread to post this gem of information.

    Sorry this is wordy. I eat about 6 or 8 100% whole wheat Triscuit crackers and a banana and begin a 3/4 full body workout (legs and pull) within 20 minutes of my workout. Next day I do the same but with press. It's a modified this that and the other program with 2 sets/1 exercise per body part with the exception of pulls (I do 2 sets of pullups and 2 sets of 1 arm rows) with a built in deload. When I get to my target of 8 reps and I could do more, I don't. I go for 8 on the 2nd set even it takes me to failure to do so and raise the weight 2 1/2 lbs on the next workout. If I happen to get to 8 on the next set without failure, I stop there and pat myself on the back and next workout I add 2 and 1/2 lbs for my reward. I'll go to failure on the first and second set until I get to my target of 8 again. Legs + pull then 3 days rest and Press with 3 days rest. The workouts have to rotate the days of the week as a result. Once a month I take Saturday and Sunday off. 2 sets/ 1 exercise per body part with built in deload. It's fast with regular weight increases without Joint and tendonitis and getting fat. Can't allow that because of Type 2 diabetes . There is just enough fasting blood sugar with more moderate carbs on the way fuel this low volume relatively frequent and good rest/recovery program. Whey shake with additional 5 grams leucine and glutamine and maybe a half banana afterward with a light cardio (120 beats per minute). The morning food plus the after workout shake begin to full up the muscles at just the right time. Oddly with the low volume (stimulate and not annihilate) program the fasting blood sugar is mostly enough for the workout . I wouldn't advise more volume or reps to failure with this morning fueling. I get light headed and shaky if I do. Zero problems with this program.

    Oh broscience. You're my best friend.

    You're absolutely correct BDTrr. There is a lot of both conjecture and I do that too much. There is a lot of science of the not so bro persuasion but it too carries the stipulation that your results may vary. The bottom line with all programs from DC to Rippetoe is whether or not you make improvement of a rep or so or weight increases regularly and if you're satisfied with the result. The next question is are we being fair to the program by following it exactly. For me, keeping weight off the belly due to type 2 is of supreme importance and I really want improvements in a rep or 2 per week or a couple of pounds increase every week. I'm pretty happy to have all that but I am forced to splice together several programs and as much science as I can believe in. I've read that we burn around 200-250 calories with a workout like mine. It's not very much. That morning fuel up is more than sufficient for me and myself only.
