Can you recommend a good workout routine at home with only a treadmill and dumbbells?

Use DVDs: You've got a terrific start with all that equipment! i'm a huge fan of p90, p90x and related dvds as they are holistic and cycle through resistance, aerobic and endurance workouts.

With a small tv monitor and dvd player you're "in business!". ...Read more

How soon after eating is it ok to work out on the treadmill?

How soon after eating is it ok to work out on the treadmill?

Let me help: If you have eaten a heavy meal, you should wait 30 minutes to two hours before exercising. The bigger the meal, the longer you will need to wait. If you just eat a light snack like half a bagel or a few low-fat crackers, you should be good to go almost immediately. ...Read more
