Our expert says:
You do know that you need to eat something after your 12-hour overnight fast so that your stomach and oesophagus can be protected against the excess acid. You also need to ingest some food before you exercise to provide some energy for your body to be able to do these exercises. I would recommend that you have a whole glass of milk (use fat-free milk if you slimming) with a teaspoon of honey before you go to gym. It would also be a good idea if you could eat a food with a low glycaemic index (GI) before you do that exercise to provide you with sustained energy during the exercise, e.g. Pronutro with bran, etc. You won't get a sugar rush if you have the honey in your milk because the quantity is too small and if you combine it with milk, the milk will lower its GI for you. You do know that stress can contribute significantly to excess acid production? I think your training programme at 5 am may well be stressing you, as well as the weight loss programme you seem to be on. Do try to relax and give your body a chance to stop producing so much acid.
