I used to eat first then run so it can burn it off, but now I run first then eat. So by then my metabolism is working at full steam and it will burn the food I just ate out and I still have a lot of energy since I ate last and I'm good for the day with energy. Reason why breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

when you wake up first thing in the morning, your metalobism is at its fastest.

lol eat a small meal .stretch .then run ,you burn more calories if you eat .... you never want to starve yourself unless ur anorexic or a girl or unless you only run a couple of of minutes

if you ate a good dinner or late night snack the night before, u should have energy for a run before breakfast. ofcourse you wont have the same energy compared to eating breakfast beforehand but you burn what your body stored over night.

I heard it's better to run first before eating, cuz itll directly burn your fat, instead of your meal.

Then theres the, "good to eat first, cuz youll get rid of your first meal, and burn it off"

always 2 sides to 1 story when it comes working out.

But who knows, its hard for me to wake up and just run. I have to be stationary for at least an hour before I start can go to the gym/run. Sometimes I eat 4 hours after waking up.

You do know your muscles aren't nourished and are catabolic after you sleep? They can be used as fuel as well.

I got used to eating a little bit before running. But when I was in the army i got used to running before chow. I actually noticed better results doing the latter. The only drawback is that sometimes you may not feel that you have enough energy. But IMO running beforehand is much better...
