Post Is it better to........

For weight loss is it better to eat and then excercise or excercise and then eat?

Should I do cardio and then weight training or the other way around?


Thanks!

Ok if you want to do plain cardio without weights ( and is serious about weight lifting) I suggest you do eat so you can have more energy. If you just want to do plain cardio don't bother eating. Best time to do cardio is when you wake up.

Hello everyone. I'm new to this topic. I've been weight lifting for couple years now. Hopefully I'll be able to give some good advice.

When you do cardio, it is best to do it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. When cardio is performed immediately upon waking, there is no food in you digestive system to use as fuel. Therefore the energy must come from your energy stores, which will be your body fat. Make sure that you do not eat simple carbs like (Fruits, Juices, Soda, Sugar). The reasoning is that: simple carbs go in your blood steam as glucose very quickly, so for the next half an hour you'll be burning all that sugar instead of fat. If you have to eat something, protein is not as bad as carbohydrates. Have a chicken breast or a protein shake and hit the treadmill.

Drink lots of water and don't try and diet to much. If you don't eat enough, your body will go into starvation mode and it will start to burn muscle insted of fat! Try not to eat big meals however, small meals every couples hours work best.
