I train fasted every morning and eat Porridge with some protein powder 1-1.5 hours before my evening session

I did that yesterday and it felt great.

I can't seem to eat anything within an hour of training, gives me wicked heartburn during, even a protein shake.

It doesn't make a damn bit of difference to me.... Other factors are so much more noticeable and critical for me.

I'm going to try baking soda pre-workout to fix my reflux. Heard there's other benefits to it too.Exercise can trigger heartburn if the LES muscle (the lower esophageal sphincter) is weak or too relaxed, and food or stomach acid "burps" back up from your stomach into your esophagus.

I could never train hard on a full stomach! I used to hit the gym early morning fasted and not eat until an hour after leaving and it was fine. I felt good for the day. Now I have had to change that up and workout in the evening after my meals all day, still not bad. To me I dont see a big difference as long as I dont eat right before a workout. Trying to go hard on a full stomach makes my food want to come back up.

I usually train fasted because I go early in the morning. I just started to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, about 1 hour before I get to the gym. I haven't notice much difference yet, but I am not really eating to better my performance. I'm eating early to get all my calories in for the day

Lately I have been using Karbolyn pre-workout when I train in the morning. I find a low-fat carb meal 1.5-2 hours pre-workout usually does me well.
Anything besides karbolyn (or any other carb product) just sits in my stomach and lingers

I started training fasted as part of the cut I've been on, but after my body adjusted to fasting/training fasted I have found I have much more energy during workouts. I will take 5 grams of glutamine preworkout if I am going to be doing intense exercise in theory that it will help prevent muscle loss. A friend of mine says it will be converted to carbs and not to, but I figure it's only 20 calories so even if that is the case I'll burn right through it and go back to fat as my source of energy.

I tend to eat cream of rice with protein an hour or so before working out in the afternoon, but may need to try training fasted in the morning since so many seem to prefer it.

Eating before training?
Oats with cinnamon, apple slices with peanut butter works for me. I cannot lift on an empty stomach

Eating before training?
1/2 cup oats with a big scoop of peanut butter at 7am. Gym at 8. I feel way too weak with no food in me. Pumps seem better after carbs too.

I train at 6AM. I do 6oz of black coffee, 4 BCAA caps and one apple. I tried eating and never felt right, always felt full.

I've been using Carb 10 from MTS and have been really enjoying it. Makes everything you mix with it sweeter, which is a plus. No stomach issues like in Karbolyn

sleeping. not binge eatting the night before etc, makes a bigger difference for me. I do have to eat before i workout if i go after work, only bc im starving after work and i'll rush my workout simply bc im hungry.
I don't make sandwiches and I don't clean house BUT I do play PC games and lift weights. Instagram: unicorn_droppings_for_you

I eat something light at least three to four hours before to the gym, if I forget, I usually go fasted. It isnt really an huge issue either way my performance doesn't grossly change.

I wonder if it's a placebo effect when people notice increased performance from eating pre-workout. Most of us only workout for an hour so it's not like a major endurance event that requires tons of glycogen and fatty acids

what is the logic behind training fasted?? i get why people do it for fasted cardio but how is training fasted beneficial? i feel like you'd be in a catabolic state
