Exercise Treatment for Binge Eating

Hi Y’all, Just wondering how you’re doing with exercise — none, moderation, addiction or resistance. If you are into exercising, it’s important to get enough calories, protein, carbohydrate and fat throughout the day so you’ll have enough energy for your workout. For me I’ve GOT to eat before and after my morning workout, which is Weights and Swim or LifeCycle, with some stretching. This usually takes me an hour to an hour and a half and I feel so good during and afterwards. There was a time many years ago when I didn’t eat first and I just had NO energy; consequently I didn’t increase my metabolism or endurance because I was starving. Now I know better. If you have an afternoon workout and haven’t eaten for 3-4 hours, you would probably benefit from having a 100-150 calorie snack beforehand so you’ll perform well. Learn to listen to your body throughout the day so you’ll better know how to respond when you need fuel. Take care, Alice
