Is it OK to wake up in the morning and work out, or should I eat beforehand?
It is not necessary to eat anything before you workout, especially if you are doing it in the morning and crunched on time. The last thing you want to happen is cramp up because you ate something and didn’t give it enough time to digest. However, if you do have time to eat, like an hour, then eat a small simple carbohydrate like an apple. This will give you more energy during your workout. The most important time to eat would be AFTER your workout when the body demands simple (easy-to-absorb) carbohydrates and protein for recovery. You have about an hour span after your workout to eat or take your Recovery Formula.
