Is it a good idea to eat before running?Watch
I am trying to lose weight. Before I went out running today, I ate 2 peaches before I ran,so I had some energy before I ran. Near the end, I ate a banana and ran again. Is this a good idea as I am trying to lose weight, and so eating fruit adds calories, but on the other hand, gives me more energy to run?
Any advice is helpful! Thanks! =)
But I an not sure if eating is a good way to burn calories.
This is why you don't lift weights on a full stomach. You need that extra blood and you don't want to spend it digesting food
Run in a fasted, but not glycogen depleted state.
I just eat about 1 hour before running, and drink about 600ml of water right before.
Also, digestion takes energy as well.
In the end, I don't think it really matters, though, as long as the meal doesn't make you sick. I would just do what feels right for you.
