      I have a buddy who will eat a meal a little over an hour before training. However, he drinks a Muscle Milk shake, followed by a pre-workout right before heading out to the gym. When I asked him how he feels when he does that, he responds nonchalantly, claiming he experiences no GI issues or upset. In fact, he says his workouts are great.

      Am I the only the one that almost vomits at the thought of eating so close to training time? I personally need at least 1.5-2 hrs before training to let my food digest or else I have a poor quality workout due to GI upset and nausea.


      Thoughts?

      No you are not the only one. I have to train on an empty stomach or I feel like puking while working out. I workout right after I get up out of bed in the morning, unless I sleep in. Even then I still don't eat until after I've finished training.

      I wait 2-3 hours. I hate training on a full stomach.

      Essentially, you actually get around to working out about 30 minutes after you've gotten up, right? The reason I ask is due to the notion that it is best to give your body a certain amount of time after waking for something occur with the synovial fluid in your spine (something like that).

      I get up around 9am and start my warm up at the gym around 10:15-10:20am.

      I have to lift with food in my stomach. I usually wait about 1 hour sometimes 2 hours for a supplements purpose. 3-4 may be a bit too long for me. Also I can't lift early AM, I prefer late night lifting. Not sure why.
