Before or after you eat

Is it better to work out and or run before or after you eat and why?

Also if I want to start running should I start out walking first or just start running?
Thanks Noah

Better to eat after a workout b/c after you work those muscles when you eat afterwards it fuels them aiding in growth. Mainly fast acting carbs and protein after you workout, helps get to those muscles for the repair process.

If you haven't been running consistanly for awhile start off slow, walk and run..intervals are the best for getting into shape. Keeps your heart rate changing which is great for losing weight or gaining lean muscle.

Good Luck

I had read that it is better to work out immediately after eating if you are eating carbs, since the body can't store fat and feed muscle at the same time, and some process I can't remember involving insulin cause muscle to be built faster at that time. Based on that, I did 30 minutes of weights (real heavy, going for weight not reps,) and 30 minutes of stationary bicycle 3 times a week (at a setting where I would be nearly exhausted) after a big breakfast for two months while at sea, and then staggered down to the shower and bed. (I was working nights almost the whole deployment.) Gained 10 pounds, (went from 150 to 160, assuming mostly muscle), got lots of compliments on my changed appearance.

I'm sure others here have used a lot of different methods and got better results. Hopefully, though, this is a good start for comparisons so that they can prove their points.

I lost 70 lbs 4 years ago, eating around 5. Run 2 miles around 8, make a fruit smoothie or eat fruit of some kind before bed.

If you are trying to lose weight you should start by cutting out the fast food completely. I don't care how much working out you do (which won't be much fueled by fast food) your weight loss won't be optimal.

As far as eating before or after unless you are running for 90+ minutes it won't matter. Under 90 minutes your body is going to use glycogen as its energy of choice with some fat. Eat balanced 5-6 meals a day.

The choice of running or walking is up to you. If you believe you are fit enough to run, run. If not walk. If somewhere in between run/walk. Aim for 30 minutes at least 3 times a week and build from there.

For maximum weight loss you'd do good by getting out there 6x a week.

My 401K is now a 400K (was 301K)

I would say 8-10 months. I was 300 even. I quit cokes & sodas all together, cut way back on fast & fried foods. It took awhile, but that was 4 years ago and i've kept it off. I still run 10 or so miles a week, and watch what I eat.

And I run 3 miles when I go out now, but dont run the entire time. There was a spell for about 6 months I didnt run at all. Im sure if I would stay consistant that I could drop another 20, which I plan to have off by the end of the year. I think taking your time is better than something drastic. I see too many people lose weight really fast only later to gain it all back and then some.

I eliminated fast food of any kind, alcohol, sweets, etc. what it ends up being is a lifestyle change. I spent years destroying Taco bell, Jack int he Box, whataburger and all sorts of other mess before I got tired of being lethargic and pudgy around the mid section.

I haven't been through a fast food joint since may.

I lost 15 pounds, and through weight training I am happy to say that my weight is coming back up (147 currently) and my waist keeps getting smaller All my 30" pants are getting looser by the week, and my shoulders/chest and arms are showing noticeable improvement. it doesn't hurt that I love fish and chicken, I eat 6 times a day and almost always planout my meal for the day the night prior. If you spend an hour or two once a week cooking, you can bust off 6 full-size chicken breasts and a few veggies and literally build your meals into tupperware, and snag one on the way out the door in the morning. I always take stuff like oat bran bagels, beef jerky and tons of fruit to work, and those are my snacks (175-200 calorie meals #2 and #4).

If you can incorporate 30-45 minutes of cardio into your life 5-6 times a week, and cut out the junk food, your will slim down and lose the gut with a quickness.
