In order for me to be consistent with exercise, I have to do it in the morning. I really hate the feeling I have when exercising later in the day and am full of food; I feel slower and heavier. Though I have found if I don't eat something before exercising, I have no energy, get light-headed, develop a headache, and stop being the end of my workout. So I've found that having half a green smoothie before working out gives me enough energy and keeps the light-headedness away. After working out, I'll have the rest of my breakfast, be it a poached egg on whole grain toast, or oatmeal with fruit. Splitting up my breakfast this way has really helped keep me on track and gives me energy for the rest of the day.
