    I'm in the Art Devany section on this one- go into a workout fasting, don't eat for about an hour afterwords.


    Also, my workouts are so intense that I would throw up if I were to eat anything beforehand. I even ate an apple 3 hours beforehand once and had it coming up...


    Afterward hunger is never an issue for me, so it makes at least some sense with the hormone spikes.

    Let's say that your "workout" was a 45 minute bike ride (at a non-race pace) to work, and then another in the afternoon. What would you eat before, if anything at all?

    The only way I have been able to sustain 'every day - all day' energy and hard (max effort) / intense (all full body movements with heavy loads) / short (60 min in and out of building with change and shower) is by:


    Fasted from 6pm until 10-11am everyday of the week (based on schedule or hunger),


    Have 2-3 eggs or canned fish with 2 cups of veggies and palm full of nuts and coffee with drop of cream,


    Workout from 12:10 until 12:50 with max effort on whatever I choose to do (always different, no routine - just be efficient),


    2 fruits with some meat, sometimes veggies and seeds at 1:15pm (I carb load after my workouts) (sometimes I skip the fruits on heavy lifting days that have minimal 'glucose depleting' effects),


    Monday to Friday (well, almost :-) ,


    Weekends off or recreational exercise / activity.


    Feel better than ever before. Hope this helps !

    Don't be affraid to try WHAT WORKS FOR YOU, your routine, intensity and goal.

    I ride my bike 30 minutes before and after working out. For me, it's not exercise, it's a mode of transportation/recreation.


    Unless you're doing interval sprints on the bike on the way to and from work, I don't think it will make much difference. If you're hungry eat a little, if not don't eat.

    Thanks Anthony. These rides are just commutes, with no sprints involved (except for that random dog).
