Ask the Diet Doctor: Eating Before a Morning Workout

Q: When I work out in the morning, I end up starving after. If I eat before and again after, am I eating three times as many calories as I normally would be?

A: Not only will you not eat that much more, you should always fuel yourself before you exercise in the a.m. The key with working out first thing in the morning is that you want to energize your training session so you can perform at your best.
