When Should I Eat?

Beauty Tips Girl Friday
Most recommendations say to eat two or three hours before exercising: eating just before working out can upset your stomach, giving you cramps or vomiting.

High-fat meals are rough on the digestion: avoid fried foods or heavy cream sauces, and skip the ice cream.

Obviously, if you pig out at a giant buffet, it’s going to take longer for your body to digest the food than if you have a cheese sandwich and an apple.

Being aware of what you eat, when you eat and how much you eat can help you decide the best times for your exercise. Also, after a workout, it’s best to wait thirty minutes before your next meal.

Everyone is different: you may discover that you need a snack twenty minutes before exercising or you won’t have the energy to go on. Some people can eat anything and then jump around: some people need to put a lot of time between eating and exercise. Experiment until you find what works for you.
