I'm going to start going to the gym before work which is going at 7AM. My question is when do i have my breakfast?

Before or after the GYM and if before the GYM how much time do i need to process the food And if after do i finish working out and directly eat or wait?

Thanks

  • That's completely up to you. We don't all react in the same way. Some people will prefer one over the other. Try it out and find what works for you. – Alec Dec 31 '16 at 16:43
  • I dont know what is the right way for the body. in terms of power, i need food to get energy and to be able to workout. But i don't know, if i have breakfast i can't just go and start my workout i need to wait for atleast 2 hrss – John Dec 31 '16 at 16:45
  • What do you mean you have to wait for at least two hours? What's stopping you? – Alec Dec 31 '16 at 16:46

    That's different from person to person. Only you can find out. – Alec Dec 31 '16 at 17:09

I wake up at 5, eat a bowl of oats and a couple hard-boiled eggs, drink a creatine/citrulline-malate shake on my way to the gym, lift, and start work at 7. It isn't ideal, but your body will adapt to whatever schedule your life forces you to live because of work/school. The important thing is that you get in there!

  • When I used to train in the mornings, I'd get up, have a strong black coffee and a banana and head straight to the gym, then eat a decent breakfast afterwards at my desk. I agree that your body will adapt to whatever you force it to :) – Dark Hippo Jan 3 '17 at 15:41
