Autumnplum, on morning pre-exercise meals, even as a kid mum used to make us fruit smoothies before we had morning sport, and this is something I still do when Im up early for exercise. Some low fat milk or yoghurt (or in the middle of australian summers where even thisis too much just ice), a banana or whatever fruit takes your fance and a tablespoon of oats or some other carbohydrate is enough energy to get me through an early morning workout, and usually I am less hungry after a workout as a result.

Yogurt is a good idea! I've been having a glass of V8, which has a lot of good electrolytes but isn't very filling. emoticon

Welcome to the team! I eat breakfast then wait an hour before I workout. I am not currently working so I have a lot of time on my hands. It is good that you are waking up hungry because that means you did not over eat before bed. Make sure your before workout snack has carbs and protein. Make sure your breakfast also has a balance of carbs and protein too. Good luck on your goals. If you need anything please just ask!

It used to be that evenings were my most challenging time - I would be tired, but need to do a bit more work before bed, so I'd eat not because I was hungry but to keep myself awake.

Now that I'm getting more sleep, I don't have those evening carb/sugar cravings, but I wake up famished. It's hard to steer away from the kitchen before going to exercise, because I'm ready for breakfast, lunch, and dinner all at the same time!

For tomorrow, I've got a small portion of yogurt and fruit set up as "before workout" food - I'm posting this because I am going to really try to stick to eating just that snack. Before I'm even halfway into my workout, I know I'll be awake enough to remember how much work each calorie takes to burn off, and that helps me eat just one meal at a time!

Sí, se puede!
