    Should I eat before you workout?

    I workout in the mornings! I don't have time to be waiting like an hour after I eat breakfast to workout, so can't I just workout in an empty stomach and THEN eat breakfast? Im trying to gain muscle btw and am a begginer.

    Try working out without eating. If your body is fine with it and you don't burn out half way through, keep doing it. If not try eating a light snack when you wake up, like a banana, and then work out. Either way you can eat your proper breakfast afterwards.

    It's better to workout on an empty stomach than a full one; you only have so much blood and it all rushes to your stomach immediately after a meal leaving a lot less for your muscles. A bit of fruit won't generate this effect enough to matter though.

    Eating on an empty stomach depends completely on the person's preferences. It won't affect your muscle gain.
