Is it more effective to exercise in the morning or at night? Also, should you exercise before you eat or after?

Is it more effective to exercise in the morning or at night? Also, should you exercise before you eat or after?

Depends,BEFORE MEALS: It's MUCH wiser to exercise before you eat. After eating, a large fraction of our blood supply goes to the GI tract to digest our food. This takes energy. Exercising then interferes with digestion & less blood is available to muscles. As to time of day, morning is best for weight loss, 2-6 PM for building strength.

Can you use tretinoin and clindymicin during the day, or is it better just at night ? Is it ok twice daily once at night one in the morning?

Can you use tretinoin and clindymicin during the day, or is it better just at night ? Is it ok twice daily once at night one in the morning?

Dosing schedule..: Tretinoin should only be used once a day - more frequently will only cause irritation and could make matters worse rather than better. For most people the routine is more easily done at night, but if for some odd reason morning really works alot better, it could be done. Just can't put make-up and sunscreen over it. Clindamycin, however, should be done topically twice a day, espeically if severe. ...Read more
