Our expert says:
You know, there is so much opinion about this one and som much in support or against either option that it is not really all that essential that you go either way. The argument that you burn more fat if you exercise on an empty stomach is probably true, and so I would say that eating within an hour of the session (up to 2 hours) may be a reasonable idea, because you are unlikely to run into trouble by doing this. The one thing that can go wrong is obviously that you don't eat and become hypoglycaemic during exercise. However, if you do eat about 2 hours before, and you are only exercising for an hour max, this is not likely to be a problem. I would then say that you should eat a meal soon after gym, just to replace what has been used and to replenish those stores. That's probably the most simple and practical way of doing it.
