I want to lose a few pounds so I want to start jogging tomorrow. I'm just a little confused. Should I eat before I jog? or after I jog?

Before, I eat after I jog. I am not so sure if that's right.

Probably better to eat after. Have a big glass o' water before you jog, then jog, then eat. Otherwise your blood is all in your stomach working on  digesting breakfast instead of out in your limbs carrying oxygen. Also, supposedly there is a "protein window" of about an hour after exercise when your body is much more able to utilize dietary protein.

Exception: If you wait an hour between breakfast and jogging then you can use all that extra chow as fuel. A relatively light, good-carbohydrate breakfast (like oatmeal with some fresh or dried fruit) is best for this, rather than, say, ham and eggs.

I'm not a nutritionist or anything, just someone who used to work out more than I do now. I'd normally work out between 1-4 hours after eating and eat something high-protein just after getting home from the gym, with good results. Work out too soon after eating and I'd have a rotten time and a tummy ache.

Thank you so much for your reply wburg. I really appreciate it.

I have another question, and I hope you can answer this too. My work schedule is 6pm to 3 am. I am planning to jog before I sleep, maybe 5-6 am. Is this okay? Or a total no-no?

If you can go to sleep right after a workout, go for it.

I haven't tried. But I'll know tonight. I'll jog for an hour and see if I can sleep. Haha. If not, I'll have to exercise inside the house before work.

Pre and post-workout nutrition is critical, because it allows the body to have the necessary energy to exercise effectively, as well as the right macro-nutrients and energy after exercise to help with recovery.

As a rule of thumb, you want to try to fill your tank up both before and after working out. How much you need to eat and what you should eat before exercise will have a lot to do with:

    * The time of day
    * When you last ate
    * How your body responds to pre-workout food.

I eat breakfast after I work out because working out while I digest can sometimes irritate my stomach.

The information about not eating after a workout is completely wrong. Every responsible source in bodybuilding and athletics recommends that you eat after training, and preferably within 45 minutes (maybe up to 60) after a workout. This period, known as the golden hour, is when the muscles absorb the most nutrients and when glycogen, an energy reserve in your muscles, is replaced most efficiently. The actual composition of the post-workout meal is a matter of some debate; for optimal glycogen replacement, most people recommend carbohydrates, but a certain amount of protein (at least 10 percent of the meal) is needed for muscle repair and growth.

Many misconceptions surround us regarding our eating before or after breakfast, some people don't breakfast at all because they can they can burn much calories empty stomach then with a full one, some people avoid food before workouts because they think that they will get nauseated, some think that because of eating all of the blood will be directed to the stomach for digestion instead of muscles during workout, pre and post workout nutrition are both important, and both of them have science, ideally if you plan on working out then before workout you should probably eat a light meal composed of complex carbs and high calories in order to provide you with the energy, and after workout if you are planing to lose weight then you should simply have a high protein diet post workout in order to maintain your lean body mass but it should be low in carb and fat content in order to lose your body fat effectively.

It depends on the workout, and how much time you have between breakfast and the workout. Optimally, the best thing is eat a light breakfast at least 2 hours before the workout.

Now if you're doing something like an endurance workout (running or cycling more than 1 hour), a breakfast is crucial. Again, 2 hours before the workout so you won't get an upset stomach.

But if you are doing shorter amount of workout, but high intensity, like a 5K running race (approx. 30 minutes). Not having breakfast actually works out better.

Regarding dinner, since dinner usually have heavier stuff, for most cases I would eat afterwards even if I'm doing endurance workout. Again, a light snack 2 hours before should get you through if you have to have something.
