Training on an empty stomache

Postby Webb » Wed Jun 20, 2012 10:45 pm

I thought this would be the best place for this thread.

I almost never have anything more than a glass of water before I do my main workout/activity, I'm just curious if anyone else does this.

There is no weird, unfounded science reason why I do this, I just feel better when I do.

I'm not sure anyone likes to eat right before training. Sounds terrible actually. I'd vomit every time if I did that. Generally, I eat an hour to an hour and a half before I head to the gym.

I understand most people do that, I meant I usually don't have breakfast or eat anything during the morning/afternoon until after I work out.

Beh, HTFU. I have a nice meal and then proceed to weightlifting. In which case it is unnecessary to worry about pre, post and whatever workout nutrition.
Next time, I'll spend the money on drugs instead.

I prefer to exercise on a light stomach. It just feels better.

I do both empty and full stomach workouts.
I like to be ready for race day, when my nutrition may be all over the map. Sometimes I race right after I eat, others on an empty stomach. So I prepare for that by eating A LOT minutes before I run/swim/bike and sometimes I workout in the late morning and I only eat lunch.

I feel a bit better racing after having eaten 3 hours before, but that ideal is rarely achievable if I have to do a series of races in a weeklong meet.

No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."
