Title: Nutrition Timing
Post by: josephynostroza on May 29, 2019, 07:05:44 PM
Is timing of eating important? There are personal trainers and fitness/ sports professionals that share precision nutrition and emphasize that nutrient timing is essential for achieving fitness goals.  I feel that there is not a clear understanding across what some other professionals believe. Does when you eat your meals for nutrition really matter?

Hi Joseph,
Yes, there is considerable controversy in this topic. The one thing we do know is that you should not exercise right after eating a meal. What you eat and how much makes a difference in how quickly the stomach empties. Competitive exercise will likely slow down or even stop digestion due to the stress response. Replacing nutrients after exercise is needed but no one agrees about what is best to eat. You will see our recommendations in the sports nutrition module. Meanwhile experiment with your own reactions to timing and type of foods eaten to see what feels best to you. Keep notes.
