As the says up there.

I would eat it after.

You will avoid a world of cramps (trust me on that one sick) and your metabolism is more active after you workout.

Happy Running happy,
Anna

I would definatley say eat AFTER jogging. I made the mistake of eating before I worked out, and thought I was going to get sick. Also, it seems like when I eat after working out, I don't want much...so that's a plus!!! :)

During, to fuel your run while your running

I eat carbs before running. Generally, protein is a better recovery food. If my work out for the evening is running or spinning, I will have carbs in my breakfast and lunch and I'll have a high protein dinner. For me, the goal is to have my body use the food after work outs efficiently, especially if it's later in the day.

Oh and generally......don't eat RIGHT before you eat. I eat my meals a couple of hours before a work out.

My dad always carb loads the night before a big run...he runs in the morning. So, not right before, but before, IMO.

I've always heard "carbs before, protein after."

I'm getting used to the "carbs before,protein after" guidelines.I make sure to have a gatorade after a workout now-makes me feel much better.

How about whenever you are hungry for it? ;)
March 23, 2012 9:02 AM
I read once that your body can better break down carbs AFTER cardio/working out. Is this true?
March 23, 2012 9:03 AM
I was going to say the same as nniles39
I think that saying means during the day or day before a race kind of thing. Right before a run though would really suck so I'd just say after. It all comes down to burning more in a day than you eat not necessarily what time. =] Now if you had a marathon race in a tomorrow I'd say before lol.

I don't like eating ANYTHING before jogging, but that's just me.
March 23, 2012 9:05 AM
I usually eat my dinner at about 6pm and then go running at 8pm
March 23, 2012 9:06 AM
It's not going to make much of any difference in terms of weight loss or body composition so I would let personal preference dictate this. If eating before a run causes you discomfort then eat after.

Do whatever you want, as long as you still workout! If you get sick from eating before, then don't do that next time. ;-D

I would be in agony and miserable if I had carbs before running. I make sure I have had a decent lunch not to heavy but atleast lined my stomach then I'm starving for food when Ive finished running lol

I like a premeal meal sometimes...

Eat whenever suits, but if you're starving beforehand and can't run on a full stomach, have a snack before and your pasta afterwards. I've been known to eat a bit of my pasta, run, heat it back up and eat it!

I know, right. I can picture some chic running down the road with a plate of pasta and a fork.

oh now I just want pasta and pesto. General rule is it's best not to eat a big meal 2 hours before working out.

Yes, eat it during! I am sorry, that is just too funny.
