Hi all, I need some suggestions for meal timing pre and post workout - if this situation has already been discussed elsewhere, please feel free to merge with another thread :-) I eat breakfast at 7:45 and lunch at 12:15, give or take a half hour every day. On gym days, my class is from 7-8 pm (high intensity circuit training, kettlebells etc.). My question is, should I eat my full dinner around 5 (as my pre-workout) and then have a post workout mini-meal when I get back? I've been doing the opposite, having a pre-workout mini meal before and then having my full dinner right after. Just wondering if one or the other was more effective, or if it doesn't really matter. I feel good and energized for the gym, I just don't know if eating a big meal around 8:30 is ideal when I go to bed at 10:30. TIA!
So, today is day two for me. I am normally a very clean eater, mostly paleo plus dairy. But lately for the last two-three weeks I have found myself indulging in candy, cake, etc. So I decided enough was enough and here I am. I need this and I feel mentally great already just knowing that I am back on track and I have a plan! But I have some basic questions maybe some of you more experienced folks can answer. 1. Is it normal to pee more often? I feel like I haven't had a whole lot more water than usual, but I have noticed more trips to the bathroom. 2. I have had a low grade headache since yesterday. I assume this is normal.... any tips? 3. Today for lunch I had a salad with pork at Chipotle topped with guacamole... and I feel so icky and have a stomach ache. I wonder if the fat triggered something? I have gall stones but I can usually avoid attacks... think this is related? 4. Just to be clear, I should have protein before I workout and a protein (plus optional carb) after? I workout at 5am and have to be at work by 8, so there isn't a lot of wiggle room for post workout snack and then breakfast. Can I make breakfast my Post workout snack/meal? 5. I know a snack isn't recommended but I"m a teacher and lunch is at 10:45 am. I need a snack to make it through to dinner usually.... what type of snack should I have? 6. I wonder if I am eating enough carbs? I am very active and cross fit or run 6 days per week. It's only day two, but I want to make sure I"m eating enough. Thoughts? Thank you so much to all who take the time to read and answer!!! <3
