So I almost never eat closer than 45 min before running...swimming...or other similar activity. But what about lifting? sometimes i feel really weak at the gym...like my gas tank is empty...even if its only been like an hour or 2 since i ate. one of the best workouts i had like 2 months ago was like 25 min after i ate a huuuuuge meal. people alwasy say that you should wait an hour though becasue some of the blood is being used to digest food still....and it won;t helo feul your muscles then. anyone have a good idea how to deal with this?...maybe eat only certain kinds of snack things right before i go or something?
