I don't eat breakfast before so after, I have an English muffin with peanut butter, 2 eggs, and a cup of Silk Light Chocolate Soymilk. That will usually hold me until lunch.

I eat a couple crackers when I first get up just to have something in my stomach before I exercise. After my workout, I just eat whatever I was planning on eating for breakfast. Usually cereal, toast or oatmeal.

No, If I eat something first, I probably won't work out. So I don't eat until after I'm done with my workout. My workouts range. I try something new everyday. For example, last week I did:
Monday -Insanity
Tuesday -10 minute workout I found on Dr.Oz's website
Wednesday -Light stretching yoga and a mile walk
Thursday -20 minute workout I found on
Friday -My legs were in pain from Thursday so I walked and did light stretching.

Complex carbs to keep my blood sugar stable and lean cheese as building bricks of protein for my muscle recovery.. Together I find these two give me nutrition and and are not wildly yummy I want to OCD on them..

Whey protein products give me a icky chemcial taste and if too sweet can smack my taste buds into wanting more..

Small, neutral and nutritional- I'm fueling my body not eating to pleasure my tastebuds..

Hi Everyone!

I'm new to having a morning workout routine and I'm learning as I go. I'm unsure that I'm eating the right foods and portions after a workout. I get really hungry when I'm done, however, I tried eating this morning and I felt nauseous. Just wondering if you could share with me what you each normally eat after a morning workout so I can get some ideas.

As always, Thank you!
