Better to run on a treadmill after or before a meal?

Is it better to run on a treadmill after or before a meal?

Answer #1

Not on a full stomach like others said, but not when you’re starving either b/c you need the energy. You can try a light snack if you didn’t eat much at last meal time. Try mostly carbs for energy with a little protein for muscle.

Answer #2

Never exersice if you have just had food. But try not to exersice on an empty stomach as your energy levels will be low and ptimum performance will not be reached.

Never exercise until your last meals was about an hour and a half- 2 hours ago.

Answer #3

Before. If you eat then run you will feel sick.
