    When i work out first thing in the morning, i don't eat. and I'm good.
    When i work out later in the day (e.g. lunchtime) , i do eat 1-2 pieces of fruit because i am hungry, and need something to hold me over until after my workout, at which point i have lunch.

    good, common sense article! - 5/27/2008 6:06:00 PM
  • Thank you! I am always in a hurry in the morning, so I usually just grab a South Beach cereal bar, but I also like to fix and peel hard-boiled eggs ahead of time and keep them in the fridge to grab before I leave for the gym. These are some great suggestions. - 5/27/2008 11:58:53 AM
  • Thank you for putting into plain English what I've been trying to figure out on my own for the last six months!! My workouts tend to be higher intensity and I haven't been able to lose a single pound. I knew it was a calories in-calories out problem but I couldn't find the solution. This article was very helpful, and knowing WHAT to eat is a huge help too. - 5/27/2008 9:44:59 AM
  • As a diabetic I was never sure what to do because I do tent to become really tired after only 15 or 20 minutes. I will start with a small snack before hand so that I don't give up before my workout is over. - 4/30/2008 12:31:17 PM
  • Great article. But for me, I never eat before exercise. - 4/28/2008 8:31:45 PM
  • Nice to clear up the "eating before a workout burns those calories first" myth. I usually eat AFTER exercise. Interesting that I might want to consider a light snack an hour or so before exercising. - 4/23/2008 9:49:58 PM

    I have always wondered if I should eat before I exercise... I'm glad to see that my choosing to eat a snack shortly before my workouts is not a bad thing! Thanks! - 4/22/2008 11:41:50 PM

    Thanks for the information. It widens my choice of snacks in future. I usually drink a cup of skim milk and eat 6 - 8 almonds before starting my 2-hour walking (at moderate/slow pace) and I feel comfortable. - 4/22/2008 10:59:46 PM
