Is not eating anything after a workout bad for you? Some days I would lift weights before I slept, but ate in morning. Can this cause muscle atrophy?

Is not eating anything after a workout bad for you? Some days I would lift weights before I slept, but ate in morning. Can this cause muscle atrophy?

It is bad for you: If you exercise by weight lifting, it is best to replenish the protein and carbohydrates you've needed in order to lift weights within an hour after stopping exercise. You're breaking down muscle by lifting, and consuming protein with some carbs to help absorb the protein in that first hour will help ensure adequate muscle repair and growth. Otherwise, you're just breaking down muscle for energy. ...Read more

What time during the day is the best time to workout to gain muscle mass. Morning (empty stomack but eat after) afternoon or late at night?

Best time is anytime: Best time to exercise is anytime you can do so regularly. Worse time to exercise is forcing yourself to become an early bird when you're naturally a night owl (or vice versa). You should eat something (many fans of chocolate milk for post-exercise drink) after every workout regardless of time of day. Don't be overly aggressive early on & get burned out from frustration. Start slow & build up base. ...Read more

Take antihistamine pills (Aerius) right before workout to avoid excessive redness? Or should you take them in the morning or at night bc last a day.

Anytime: Although there had been study suggesting antihistamine was more effective when taken in the evening, in practice I have not seen much difference as long as you take it. In your case, taking an antihistamine about 2 hrs before exercise may make sense. ...Read more

Food for breakfast: I'd prefer you eat a regular healthy breakfast and use the protein bar as an in-between meal supplement. Bars are a good quick source of nutrition but shouldn't replace whole nutritious foods. And the B complex vitamins with breakfast would be fine. ...Read more

Diet: Your intake as described would be consistent with weight loss. My primary concern is you are not getting enough protein in your diet and not enough caleries for long term intake. To be at a healthy weight, activate metabolism by eating protein serving (size of your palm)+complex carbs every 2-3 hrs/day. Sprinkle 3 fruits, 4veggies, at least 3 tsp butter/olive oil and 3 servings milk (greek yogurt). ...Read more

What should you eat in the morning before 2-hr workout?

Food: I would recommend a well balanced breakfast 30- 60 minutes before a 2 hour workout. 2 hours is a long workout and you want to make sure your body has enough fuel to sustain you. The meal should be high in protein, good fats, and quality carbohydrates which are very important for energy. Don't worry about the calories as much as the quality of the meal. ...Read more

How to take creatine? I workout in the morning about 5-6. Should I eat or should I drink first?

Hydration: Ceatine is not a harmless supplement considering it can affect your kidneys. Make sure to stay well hydrated while taking it. Creatinine is usually loaded and then maintained if you choose to take it. I do not recommend taking it without seeking medical attention and making sure your kidneys and general health is ok. ...Read more

Abdominal soreness: This may be strain or inflammation of abdominal muscles. Turning, twisting aggravating the discomfort would point to muscular discomfort. However, if there is abdominal aching with tenderness in a certain region of the abdomen, inflammation of an organ like appendix, gall bladder, pancreas, gastritis have to be checked for. If symptoms persist, see your physician for evaluation. ...Read more
