This isn’t precisely about burning off fat. But if you’re attempting to slim down, I’m certain you have wondered about this. I’ve heard that you ought to eat following exercise to replace glucose and glycogen supplies.
I’ve likewise been told not to eat following exercise in order to heighten calorie burn. To be truthful, I don’t know what you ought to do or shouldn’t do. I truly don’t think anybody does.
Here is just a little sample of advice from a lot of respected authors and health associations:
- Avoid arduous exercise for at least 2 hours following eating a meal.
- Wait approximately twenty minutes before eating following exercise.
- Eat something light 30 minutes prior to exercising in the morning. Make sure to eat inside 2 hours after to restore fuel to your muscles.
- Work out in the morning on an empty stomach.
- Consume a low fat, complex-carbohydrate meal or snack one to four hours prior to exercise.
- Eat .45 gm of carbs per pound of body weight one hour prior to exercise.
Like I stated, I truly don’t think anybody knows for certain. In my judgment and experience, everybody is different, you have to experiment with when, and what you ought to eat before and/or following exercise. If you eat prior to exercise and you feel sick to your stomach or sluggish, you likely should cut down on the amount or not eat at all. If you feel dizzy or weak, you might have to eat more or eat closer to working out. If you’re hungry following exercise, that’s a great indication that you ought to eat! In all cases, make sure to eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full.
The concept of intuitive eating works here, too. If you feed your body established on its physical needs and demands, you’ll eventually return to your natural weight. Bottom line, you’ll have to experiment with when you eat and the sorts of food you eat to ascertain what is best for your body.
