:thumbup: hey guys, havent been on here for a long time, good to see you all still helping each other out.

got a nutrition brain buster for ya.

in the military we run in the morning. we also wake up everyone else including the lord himself in the morning. if i dont eat before we run, am i burning away muscle mass that i have been working so hard for?

i do eat a big bowl of oatmeal and lots of protien before i go to bed so that i am not hungry during the run, but should i also eat something in the morning to get my metabolism working?

id rather be burning fat than muscle in the morning. thanks for all replys guys. you rock

yeh running on an empty stomach is a good way to loose muscle i believe. Best bet would be to knock some whey protein into you with some water that way it wont make you feel to sick

i always thought it is good to go training on an empty stomach that is HIIT or cardio as your body is more likely to turn to fat stores than muscle is it not?

HIIT should never be done on an empty stomach. Built said it so it must be true

It might be better for fat burning, but it also might be better for muscle-burning, too.

Hepatic glycogen levels are practically empty after waking, absolutely eat something to avoid catabolism.

Do you think something you ate 8 hours prior is going to help you NOW?

Eat something.

Have a protein shake mixed in some milk.

maybe a bananna, or some other piece of fruit.

this may be a noob question, but how 'far' and how 'hard' do you run in the morning?

Would eating and then running not make you vomit if you ran the typical (carry the gear) army mornig run?

Just asking...

thanks..

Would eating and then running not make you vomit if you ran the typical (carry the gear) army mornig run?You should wait a little while after eating before running.

Get a hold of some eggs. That'll do ya good. No carbs but great protein and fats. Eat as many as you think you can handle without if affecting your run. Good luck

I throw up all the time if I eat before morning PT. Just me I guess.

Am I the only one that sees glucose (dextrose) as the obvious answer here?

Condidering most Military guys are skinny by bb standards I don't think you should worry about a little AM catabolism.

As long as you are maintaining weight and getting stronger your training is right on track.

Its a good way to lose weight when you have no conern except for what the scale says.
