Any RD's in the house? Nutrition question...
Hey all, I came across another site today (www.bodyforlife.com
- EAS partner from the looks of the site) that listed at one of 10 nutritional guidelines as:
"Donít eat right before or right after you train
If you can, work out first thing in the morning on an empty stomach for maximum fat burning. Also, waiting an hour to eat after a workout may be an effective strategy for increasing the residual fat-burning effects of exercise. EAS also recommends to avoid eating right before going to bed. This strategy has also been shown to stimulate muscle-protein synthesis and muscle growth."
I've seen and heard this before, but it seems to go against everything I learned in my masters program (MS Sports Nutrition program).
#1 Is this true?
#2 Are there people out there who should listen to this recommendation?
#3 Why is this recommendation even out there? (I'm under the assumption that it's wrong to do this, but that's just my take on it for a few reasons)
