If you exercise at a high intensity, such as CrossFit, circuit training, or weight lifting for strength, hypertrophy, or performance, you need to eat before your workout. Generally, small meals or snacks should be eaten one to two hours before exercising, so this may be your best bet for your pre-workout meal. While these guidelines are helpful, everyone’s digestion system is different. You may find that you need to eat earlier or later. Not eating before a morning workout is unhealthy.

You need food to be able to carry out your daily workout schedules. You should eat the right food 30 to 45 minutes before workout to have a successful bodybuilding.

Yes, you will burn more fat while working out if you are in a fasted state, but if you cannot fit a morning workout into your routine, don’t stress! It is also important to consider the amount of time our bodies take to get into a fasted state. You cannot eat your last meal at 5pm and workout at 8pm in a ‘fasted state.’.

You want carbohydrates to provide the majority of the fuel for your workouts, so if you’re someone who works out later in the day, just make sure that lunch contained some sort of healthy carbs. and I definitely try to eat as soon after a workout as possible—within 30 minutes.

Eating 3–4 Hours Before Exercise: Food Choices If you decide to eat a large meal or snack 4 hours before a long run or hard training ride, 2 grams of carbohydrates per pound (4 g/kg) for a 160-pound (73 kg) athlete would translate to 320 grams of carbohydrates.

However, a breakfast that includes eggs, meat, or cheese—all high in both protein and fats—will take longer to digest, so you would do better not to eat foods like these before you train.

  • I love watching your videos, you are so spot on the next thought, cool I get it when you tell me, and I totally agree with you on everything. Here’s the thing, you are always, always, coming from a “loosing weight” goal. What about folks that workout to maintain a healthy, fit body. This mindset is a much most positive and not slant to people that are trying to loose weight. Coming from a fitness angle what is the message? You are providing scientific, proven facts visa vie a professional of the appropriate knowledge. There is data, statistics that every one should work out and train in the different types of fitnessto be fit and hopefully live longer. Healthy physical body goal is good for all. You are the one that can motivate me and I will dismiss the angle of over weightness and focus on the topic itself. Enjoy seeing more, you are a real inspiration. Everybodyknows you can never be too rich or too thin, right?

  • I am intermittent fasting 10hours then working out waiting an hour then eating. If you work out before you eat you burn your excess fat stored in your body. If you work out after you eat, you burn it will take longer to burn the excess fat you have stored because of what you recently consumed. Muscle mass does diminish, but only if you don’t eat right.

  • I definitely belong to the second group. If I work out without eating beforehand I get sick (very dizzy + very nautious). Also, I have to have breakfast every single day before I do anything else. If I skip it, I always end up feeling miserable dizzy, nautious and with no energy whatsoever. Mainly this is the reason why I always schedule my workouts to the afternoon  evening hours, that works the best for me.

  • Hello sir I really like your videos can you advice me how to loss weight my weight is 85kg because of my weight I’m having a problem hair loss or more problem I really don’t understand what to do with my weight

  • I dont like working out after eating since it wakes me up, but after I eat and workout. It hurts my stomach since im still digesting it. Like your forcing your body to digest faster. I usually just drink smoothie before workout

  • Thanks for the ������ content as always!!

    If you are a mesomorph (female), and looking to cut and lose body fat, how far ahead of your workout should you pause from eating before your workout?

  • I suffer with migraines, I get at least one a week, probably closer to every other day. The doctors have said that exercise helps with this but whenever I work out even if for only ten minutes, it gives me a really bad headache. I was told that it was due to dehydration but I’ve been really conscious of my water intake and I don’t think that it is the issue. I don’t know what to do I want to be active and healthy but I get so dizzy and migraine-y after a workout it’s really difficult. I’m on beta-blockers which lower heart rate and blood pressure, could this make a difference? @jessicasmithtv  Please help, I feel completely helpless!

  • Mera wet 70kg hai 169hight hai body shirt pehenane ke baad skiny lagti hai but fat body mai bhoto hai pet bahot bada hua hai mai 2011 se gym krta hoo but sal mai 4 mahine hi krta hoo usme bhi gyaap nahoto hota haiso ab mai ek mahinese ghar per dumbel se workout shuru kiya hai muze aap jaisi body banani hai so mai kya karu?

  • I struggle to choose between taking carbs and BCAAs for fuel before my workout. I’m up at 4am and workout at 5am. Don’t know which is the best way to go.

  • While it does break down muscle it does also break more fat and after the work out your body is able to build up protein better so as long as you eat something protein rich after your should build back up

  • hey Marc I have a question for you. where do you source your bcaa’s for machine fuel? I know that about 90% of companies source leucine from china (dead cat hair) and I’d gladly pay more for a product that isn’t sourced In that way because for some reason it doesn’t bother me as much if it’s sourced from human hair

  • Great video once again ���� I’m 30 and currently 118kg and desperate to lose weight prior to my police fitness test. I workout 4-5 times a week doing cardio (bleep test) and weight training. I don’t take any supplements or shakes etc because I just don’t know what is really best for me and I would love any advice you could give please?

  • I ate a toast with peanut butter, also milk with oat 30 minutes before workout, that was horrible I almost throw it out all over the mirror in the gym

  • brilliant video Dana, love your comments about ”listen to your body”, love your enthusiasm on all your videos, thank you yet again:)

  • I am a mesomorph body type (female)trying to put on muscle. What are some of your recommendations for pre and post workout meals/snacks?

  • I always workout after 20 hours of fasting. Many studies confirm that working out on an empty stomach forces the body to tap into fat cells for energy when the insulin level is at its baseline.
    Personally ive been doing this for about 3 months and ive lost about 20+ lbs, coulda been more but i lift weights.

  • Loading up on some carbs before bed if you are going to train at 5AM isn’t a bad idea. Your glycogen stores will be completely filled still in the AM so you can just have a protein shake or some eggs upon waking and go to the gym.

  • I go for a 5 mile walk in my house (since my house has a literal circle that’s perfect for walking laps) and it usually takes an hour. It makes me feel really strong and then when I pick up something to eat I don’t feel guilty.

  • I’ve been following your content in the shadows for years and years (all the way back to before the SWEET POTATO RECIPE BOOK) and I gotta say, brother, I am truly proud of what you’ve accomplished over these years. Watching you grow on youtube, instagram and pretty much everywhere else right before my eyes has been an immense inspiration to myself and to everyone who follows you too… Keep doing you, Michael. You havent changed from the start, but you have truly changed this industry! ❤️��

  • Absolutely he got great ideas amazing and i did tried what he said and it worked for me.Personally i use to hate earlly morning workout but actually its the best time to workout and ur day is gena be great spirit day

  • ya i workout on a empty stomach because that’s when i got the most energy. i get to tired after eating because i just wanna relax and chill. I might just stick with that. But kudos to those people who need to eat before a workout, i can’t do it. lol

  • I just feel i burn more fat when I do Exercise Before Breakfast or Empty stomach…. But i just Feel vomiting when I do more Exercise With an empty stomach… What Should i do in this…. Can any one know…. Can I Eat Something lightly before my workout..??

  • Hi Gurav I am a huge fan. brother I want your opinion about metformin + orlistat. my BMI is 29 and my age is 37. i am already using L Carnitine 500 mg just starting using vitD3 500mg

  • I think it depends on your bodyweight and what you are trying to accomplish. I wanted to lose my belly fat, so I was exercising and saw minimum results when I did it later in the day after I got all my calories. I started walking on an empty stomach for 4 hours straight, like 4 days a week and I seen results the next week. I think if u are trying to build muscles and dont have alot of body fat to lose, it maybe wise to get something In your system for energy, so u wont become fatigued after an early lengthy, intense, sweaty workout.

  • I have one meal a day so I wake up, go to work (part time so just till 12) come home, drink a healthy homemade smoothie, workout, at about half 5 I have my one meal (dinner), then I go for 2 walks because I have 2 dogs and then I laze around

  • I can’t workout without food, it leaves me without energy. Earlier today I did a short bike ride and even a minute in I could not push my legs I felt like I would throw up.

  • Currently at 180.6lbs and want to lose 20-25lbs and lose fat along the way. Would having a upper/ lower body split 4x a week while on a low carb/ calorie diet help me achieve my goal? And what are some things I can do to speed up the process?

  • On morning work shifts, i often Work overtime. I finish a bit late 8pm. I have no choice but to workout with an empty stomach. Otherwise there will be no exercise for the day. I will jog n sprint on an empty stomach given that my last meal is at 6pm. My body feels just fine, no dizziness. After resting i’ll drink plain water & eat bananas & breads… & Sleep early

  • I dont feel well when i excersicing on an empty stomach. I drink one cup of water to start my metablosim and then i do my work out, i let my body rest and then i have a healthy breakfast.

  • I’m 240 pounds And all I want is to lose weight. I do exercise for at least 30 minutes a day should I eat before and after or no?

  • I just hate working out on empty stomach or hungry. It is really hard for me to put some work, some energy into it so the workout is not even that effective.

    What best works for me is eating about 1 hour before workout and then again like 1 hour after.

  • Sir mujhe uric acid ki bahut prob hai.. mai Protein nahi le sakta.. protein lene se mujhe joints me bahut dard shuru ho jata hai.. mujhe workout k liye kya diet leni chahiye… Plz bataiye… Mai bahut confused hu.. mai gym karta hu, but diet extra kuch nahi leta. Jo ghar me khana banta hai, wohi leta hu.. plZ sir, bataiye mujhe..

  • I went to the park this morning for wrkout on an empty stomach and drank a Redline. Bad idea..I felt nauseous and got sick, couldn’t finish as strong as I wanted. I think I’ll just have lite breakfast tomorrow and see how that works. I’m beginner, obviously lol

  • I workout in the afternoon. I make sure that eat a little snack before I workout. If I workout on a empty stomach, my tummy starts growling and stop working out to eat. little snack will do.

  • I work a 7:30-4 job mon-fri so I was trying to get up at 4:30 to get a work out in before having to get ready for work. I would wake up, eat something light, wait 10-15 min and then workout. But, it left me with NO energy by 2pm…and with a toddler, it just wasn’t flying. So now, I wake up later, and when I get home from work, I exercise for an hour. My tot even tries to join me! I find that I am much more energized, I hit it harder, and am more controlled. And, it leaves me with energy for the remainder of the night. This is my new schedule and it works.

  • Can you please tell that cardio on empty stomach in morning will lead to lose skin? If so then how can I prevent it…please help…thanks a lot

  • What happens if your fat, surley the body burns the fat off first.. like if a caveman chased his prey and didnt catch it,, the next time he would be slower as leg muscle would be smaller and weak, and the body keeps its fat? Your theory he would never catch nothing after a few attempts? he would die, this would be a human design fault if your theory was true,

  • I put this info in my email newsletter that accompanied this video:-) go to realfit dot tv & put your name & email into the box on the home page & that’s where I share more goodies. To answer your question, A piece of fruit is a good choice 30 mins before your workout.

  • I have mixed it up.
    for a the forst couple of weeks of starting my weight loss I ate after. now I ate before. As of right now I see more progress eating before. And I don’t wait two hours after eating, I only wait about 20 Mins. thank you for sharing I was very curious about your thoughts on this.

  • i know that under a fasted state depending on the intensity of cardio leads to how many min u should do cardio. say i havnt eatn for 7 hrs and weigh 102lbs is it ok to jump rope for 45-60min?

  • I think it depends on the duration of the workout one that last longer than 45 min or over an hour might want some fuel but otherwise there’s prob no need due to the glycogen already stored.

  • I prefer to workout on an empty stomach.  Especially if I will be doing intense cardio, HiiT, metabolic training or tabata.  I feel sluggish and nauseated if I try to eat first.  I do have to have my quart of water and coffee first though.  If I am doing weights, I can eat first, but still I am just in the habit of working out on an empty stomach and even on days I do not workout, I wait a couple of hours after rising to eat.  I am not programmed to eat first thing.  I also prefer not to eat late at night.I do have a question.  Why does it seem metabolic workouts have so many overhead presses in the mix…I feel like I am always doing an overhead press…I realize you can do squats, lunges, step ups etc with the overhead press, but I feel it is over-utilized. What can I do instead…hammer curls, front raises, lateral raises?  I guess I could do them without weights.  Am I the only one who feels this way?

  • i cant workout on an empty stomach i get very dizzy.
    i prefer to workout in the noon as my energy level is the most present.
    early morning. workouts feel awful for me ��

  • Bloating vaala scene toh mere saath bhi hota hai…aaj aapka yeh video dekhke accha laga ki hum kya kar sakte hai if oats khaane se bloating hota hai toh! keep posting such videos. These are really helpful

  • Wow! Awesome video, you explained this way better than the articles and information pages and I usually excercise before I eat and then I have a small snack and then I have lunch and dinner… and workout in between meals

  • Hi Jessica. I have a question for your Q&A. I sometimes get muscle cramps during a workout, especially in my calves and feet during barre workouts (all the toe pointing!). Any advice how to avoid cramps or get rid of them?

  • Great information. Clarified some of the questions I have around pre/post workout eating. Plus, I learnt that I have a mesomorph body type ����

  • The problem about that is what type of body type you have and want like me I’m pretty average and building muscles and I tried doing that and learned that I lose more muscle so I don’t really do it anymore and it’s probably better if your trying to lose weight not build

  • I get Hangry if I don’t eat lol a small snack or meal is a must for me b4 working out My husband On the other hand bushes teeth and off he goes to the gym.

  • I prefer a small snack before hand (30-60 minutes) so my stomach isn’t growling during the work out but I always feel full for up to 2 hours after my work out so I like doing my workout in the mid morning to help me get to lunch to help reduce the total amount of food I eat

  • Hello Sir

    Waiting for your reply

  • #QandAWed question for you: Any exercise recommendations or suggested routines for someone suffering from heel pain due to plantar fasciitis? Thank you!

  • I exercise on an empty stomach, i have a green tea and water and a pre workout before gym only. The tea stops me from feeling dizzy and the pre workout keeps my energy up so i can work out for a long time. I also take creatine, which helps too.

  • Personally, I just listen to my body..if I’m hungry, I eat, workout 30 min or so later.. if not, I drink some water and start my workout…

  • I was finding someone like you on youtube from last so long because on youtube it look like everyone is PRO but I’m really glad i find you finally and now i will follow you and your tips thank you so much god bless you by the way I’m from india and here is impossible to find someone like you with great knowledge about exercise and nutrition thank you once again man.

  • Hello everyone:) I’m so happy to see this topic going on…here’s my impression: recently I have noticed that when I do my exercise earli(er) in the morning, the sweat breaks through more quickly! It was a random discovery since my schedule had not let me the time to exercise in the morning hours but this one time thing was a really positive discovery:)

  • YAY, Q&A Wednesday is back! I’m with Jessica on this one, I eat three square meals a day (with the rare treat every now and then) and do my workouts when I can fit them into my busy day. I find it hard sometimes to schedule in workouts without mucking about with when I eat, especially when having a family, I feel it more important to at together then separately. I have heard exercising on an empty stomach is better for iou and did try it but found it really wasn’t for me!!

  • Jessica looking for an answer regarding weight training. If I’m doing a workout that uses weights i.e… your 10 Minute Solution Bootcamp dvd and doing this 3 or 4 times a week. If I want to see more muscle definition do I need to do additional weight training? I also do full body push ups in my floor work 3-4 times a week.

  • I get sick if I have food in my stomach. I work out pretty early though but if I am hungry I can only eat a few select foods and in small amounts, like a handful of almonds. I have to be careful drinking during workouts too. I can only take small sips of water during workouts. Thanks Jessica!

  • I feel so much better and more energized when I do it on an empty stomach! When I eat before I feel stuffed and feel tired faster.

  • I always exercise in evenings, two hours after my meal.   Also every morning thirty minutes before breakfast I stretch my whole body. Thank you so much for the video.:)

  • Yay! QandA is back! I missed it, Jessica. I always thought of it as personal time for just you and me, you telling me some helpful information and me being able to use it:) I personally cannot eat in the mornings. I never eat breakfast, even though they say it’s important. I just can’t seem to stomach the thought of eating until lunch. However, I do know that on days where I will be doing a lot (kickboxing, HIIT or just a super busy, on-my-feet-all-day day) I eat a snack right before bed the evening before, so I’m not starving in the morning. It usually works for me…

  • When I am at school in the morning, I work out in the evening, at least 3 hours after my last meal. When I am at school in the afternoon, I work out when I wake up and then eat my breakfast. Some people say that working out in the morning is the best, but when I work out in the evening, I free all the stress from school and I sleep better.

  • My question is, what do you do if you work out first thing in the morning because you have to leave for school at 7 and you can’t wake up any earlier than 5?

  • I personally do not like to exercise on an empty stomach.  I have a friend who swears by it but I like to have something in me, toast with pb or a banana and some milk, something to fuel me so I’m not distracted by feeling hungry.

  • I’m not following the pulses on the abduction machine. Looks like you’re just doing straight reps and you show one pulse right after the transition but then continue with just straight reps?

  • Me usually gym jane se 30 min phle 2-3 banana and hand full of dry fruits ( almond/cashew)…leta hu…to kya muje diet m change krna chiye?

  • I can’t workout in the morning until I’ve had my coffee…just isn’t going to happen.  However, once I’ve had my coffee I can’t workout because of the “sloshing” (it makes me sick)…so I just gave up, I have my coffee and then breakfast when I’m finally “awake” THEN workout.:)

  • I just have a light/low fat cheese stick and water before I work out in the morning. Mostly because I wake up hungry and I need something to fuel me until breakfast. But if I work out at night I work out before having dinner because I don’t want a whole meal on me while working out.

  • On my schedule I work out late and after dinner..but im now wondering the same abt eating before or after dinner??which is better??and does working out at 8 or 9ish jus too late for your metabolism??

  • Hello jessica! I had a question about post workout regime.after a workout what do you suggest for muscle recovery a protein shake or bar I usually just prepare a smoothie but I find myself hungry afterwards and just keep it light so what would you suggest for post workout recovery? Thank you so much jessica:-)

  • When I weighed 200 lbs and got into running I was running and not much seemed to happen. When I had my last meal mid afternoon and get up the next morning and run. It was hard for about 30 days. Then I noticed my longer runs getting easier and weight started coming off.
    So for training for long runs I think the not eating before produces better results. I lost 60 lbs in 7 months and my race times got better.
    The December before I changed my diet I ran a 3:35 marathon and one year I ran a 3:01.55.

  • Sir my shoulder is imbalance due to skipping my shoulder days can you make a video what to do to balance it or any any body parts (generally)

  • So,every body is indeed different..Ok,now we know!! I must have nourishment before a morning workout. I am an early riser and I have no problem with breakfast first thing…My husband,on the other hand,can fall out of bed,have a cup of coffee, (ugh,on an empty stomach! I would die..)then jump into exercise mode…Once again,a death sentence for me,not for him.This brings me to another question..I workout in gear similar to what you wear,more exposed skin.He insists on wrapping himself up like a mummy,apparently old school sweat-it-off style. I know of no one else that still uses the “sweat suit” technique. What do you think? Good,bad or,as with the eating issue,personal preference? ( He does looks kinda adorable all bundled up like that,but that info will be between,well,apparently all of us…GO BODY GO!!!

  • So I have a question about progressive overload at the beginning of the workout I have the most energy, so I normally do 1 warm up set and then go for my maximum weight and try to do 2 sets of that, then drop the weight and do 2 more sets. Each time I work out I try to either increase the maximum weight or increase the number of sets (8 reps maximum weight hip thrusts seems to be the most I can do so I don’t aim to increase the reps in the sets). Is this wrong? Should I be starting lighter and build up? It seems like your muscles would get fatigued quicker and I’d be able to lift less?

  • If any of you fatties came here to follow her diet to lose weight….good luck. Starting your day with that many fat when you’re fat is the worst thing

  • I’m in the second time group, and need to eat before, or I get nauseous and sluggish. I workout in the morning, a half hour after I eat. I actually have more energy in the evening, but it’s hard to fit exercise in at that time. Thanks again for the great info!

  • I had to start working out in the morning because everytime that I worked out after 4pm I was having a hard time going to sleep… even if I was not taking any pre workout..

  • So happy to have Q & A back! I missed it because I always learn something new.:)
    I am definitely in the first group. I have to workout first thing in the morning or it’s too hard to fit it in later once the kids all get up (no one naps anymore). And I can’t bear to eat anything first. I actually feel like it curbs my appetite and I eat less overall throughout the day. I’ve been doing this for years this way, but I used to do it the other way when my 3 oldest were small. To everything there is a season!
    I have a question about Tabata and HIIT. It seems like they do overlap a lot in principle. What is the difference?

  • I do oatmeal with peanut butter (or whey isolate). Cheap, and tons of energy (slow burning complex carb, protein, and fat). No preworkout (that shit is so toxic to the body and all its systems). No need to spend $500/month on bro science powders to shove down your throat every few hours.

  • Thank you, this is really informative and good, since a lot of people tend to claim that you burn muscle while working out in the morning… Again: thanks.:)

  • Arnold don’t believe in post n pre meals. He just simply believes in having diet whenever u want. But todays so called u. Tube analysts confuse people what to eat before n after…..

  • I always have pre workout suplements before the workout. Does it mean its not burning the fats to energy because the body get the energy from supplements? Thanks for reply:)

  • I think you should run for President, to be honest. If you can whip a few million of your followers into shape, imagine what you could do for our country! ^_^

  • I personally feel sick if I workout first thing before eating breakfast. I wait at least an hour after eating before I start my workout.  Love Jessica Smith’s Walk Strong 6 Week Total Transformation System. If you’re looking for a new exercise program, I highly recommend it.

  • Empty-stomached…I feel nauseous with food on my stomach. But I do try to drink a protein shake or at least a glass of milk afterward to help with muscle recovery.

  • I’ve found that I’m too weak to exercise before I’ve had breakfast so I exercise in the evenings when I get home from work, an hour or so after dinner

  • I am an youngster and my wright is 100 kg.
    I would love if you would help me or suggest me something.
    I wish to loose atleast 20 kgs

  • An empty-stomach workout for me is the best. I never am too hungry in the morning so when I finish my exercise after a minimum of an hour, I look at my breakfast afterwards as a “treat” knowing I’ve done my exercise for the day and that I can from there on rest and be satisfied with myself. The rest of the day just includes staying away from junk which isn’t the easiest, but it’s not that difficult either if you put your mind to it.

  • I typically do a scoop of pb marsh cor-whey, couple knifefulls of pb, a banana all in a blender with almond milk. Fills me up and hits some good macros

  • it really helps me running wrkt… but if I stop I get very easily fat����even more then before I started exercise ����I don’t know y����������

  • Helo, gaurav i request you make video on collagen peptides. Becoz ye aaj kal bht popular hai bht si company bna rahi hai. Isko kon le sakta hai iske benefits kya hai. Kon se type ka lena hai, in sab par baat kare. My mail id [email protected] gmail.com.

  • Sir should we have protein shake before/after the workout?Lastly i think i am a hardgainer belonging to vegetarian family, although i can have eggs. Should i go for protein shakes/natural nutrients? Do protein shakes really harm?
