I get conflicting information about whether to eat or not to eat before working out? What would you advise? – Francis
Yes, it is good eat before you work out; food provides your body with energy so you can work harder and longer. The best support for a typical 1 hour gym workout would be a full meal 3-4 hours ahead of time with a small snack (applesauce or glass of milk) 30 minutes just before your workout. – Debbie J., MS, RD
