    Talking dinner before or after workout?

    Hey everyone,

    my work schedule is INSANE, and i normally have to leave my house by 6am to get to work ontime... my gym opens at 530am, which means i don't have enough time in the morning to work out.. so i have to work out in the evenings... i don't get home from work until anywhere between 6pm-8pm.. so i do my workouts after work...

    so should i eat dinner first and then workout after? or should i be working out and THEN eating dinner after my workout?

    if i eat dinner after my workout, i feel like it's so late at night to be eating and going to bed right away since i gotta be up so early the next day...

    so when working out in the evening.. when should i be eating??

    Have something to eat before working out, a protein drink or apple and beef jerky.

    Save the dinner for after. If you're working out hard enough, you'll burn it off.

    Agreed, eat before AND after. For one, you are probably already hungry since lunch, and then if you don't refuel your body you will not get as much out of your workout. Plus, this way you do not need to eat AS MUCH before and after, It spreads it out a bit and you'll not feel like you just ate a giant meal before bed.

    You're doing great.
