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.

Controversy: If Abilify (aripiprazole) has resulted in metabolic changes and weight gain, then the situation with respect to time of exercise is no different compared to someone not taking Abilify (aripiprazole). Exercise studies have suggested a slight advantage to exercising on an empty stomach -- typically early morning. But it is only slight. Better to favor the time that permits you to stick to it. ...Read more
