      Should you eat before lifting?

      If so how long should I wait after I eat before I lift? 30min? Hour? What about if I do fasted cardio? I wanna kill two birds with one stone and lift right after or before. I donít wanna go to the gym twice in a day.

      I have tried working out fasted and with something in my stomach. I prefer...if I’m lifting then I eat a little something carb related and a protein shake 30-40min prior.
      Going fasted I “felt” weaker and less motivated.
      I would say depending on your goals like drop some fat, I would do fasted cardio only. Maybe pick a few just cardio days with maybe abs.
      Personally I need fuel to run the motor.
      You could also try brining a Intra workout drink to replenish your glycogen after you do fasted cardio and do some lifting after.

      I like to eat about 2hrs before the gym. I like to have some carbs with this meal as well. I've tried fasted workouts and I agree with 9tmare, I just felt like I was a little weaker. You can try it though and see what works for you.

      Yeah I lifted yesterday on an empty stomach and I felt so damn weak. Less motivated. I’ll definitely at least get a protein shake and something with carbs in me from now on.

      How will you ever have the strength to life enough weight to change your body composition if you don't eat before the gym?
      I'm not being sarcastic here, but - YES - eat before you go to the gym.
      If you're focused on hypertrophy, you must eat and eat right.
      If you're on a keto kick, get off of it for god's sake!
