Is it better to eat dinner at 6 p.m., wait 1 hour & then work out OR work out before dinner and eat late, at like 8 p.m.? – Kyla
Eat dinner first and then workout. It’s best to fuel your brain and muscles ahead of time, rather than play catch-up later after you have exhausted a bunch of energy from exercising. So as long as your stomach is not uncomfortable, I’d prefer you eat and then workout. You can always have something light after your workout such as a V-8, glass of milk or salad to refuel. – Debbie J., MS, RD
