The answer........ is there is no one answer. Everyone's body, though essentially made up the same with bones, muscles, organs, does things just slightly different; therefore a diet for one may not be the right diet for another. Here is a short video with a sugestion which may be beneficial.
The important thing that I have found, is if time allows, I try not to eat at least an hour before a workout. Personally I need to eat something before I workout, working out on an empty stomach is nonproductive for me. Another suggestion is if you are just starting out, track your food and fluid intake and keep track of how you feel before and after workouts and cross reference those feelings to what you ate. A good food tracker is www.fitday.com. Fit Day has a large database of food and is user friendly and quick to use. There are many out there, so find one that works well for you.
The right answer to this question is what works for you. Don't try to fit yourself into a prepackaged program that works for someone else. You are unique and so are your before and after nutritional needs.
be FIT Be HEALTHY!!
