    Eating breakfast before or after workout?

    Hi guys,

    Should I eat breakfast before or after workout? Which is a better choice?

    EDIT: the workout I does is kinda light (Medium intensity)

    If you do it before eating, ingest some BCAA's. Tho you should only lift before breakfast if you have more energy when fasted or are cutting.

    Hi,
    personally, i feel good working out before breakfast (better then working out after breakfast).

    but i have seen many reports saying that working out before breakfast is bad because your stomach as been on empty fuel hours ago, etc...

    if you eat a small snack, you shouldnt need to wait at all, at most maybe 10 minutes

    what i do is

    eat a snack
    workout
    eat a proper meal (+protein, etc)

    no, there is not. I suggest your check out the nutrition section, alot of people on there fast for 16 hours and then train without the use of BCAAs.

    Just like that guy said, meal timing does not matter.
