Eating Pre or Post Workout
« on: June 25, 2012, 09:34:52 am »
I created a thread for watchntv:

"Tea, Prunes and Apples.  These nutritional powerhouses were associated with less skin wrinkling. [2]  Probably any dark colored fruit or vegetable packed with antioxidants and flavanoids like these will have the same effect.

I eat apples but the prunes have high sugar content, so my question is when is it best to eat them?  I'm thinking before I work out, burn calories, as opposed to sitting on my ass in front of the computer typing more posts in this thread!"
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements. Yes, low T and E.D. are usually medical conditions.

This is an involved question, but it is best to make sure that you eat your superfood, juices and antioxidant-type supplements (Vitamin C, etc.) twice per day at least in my opinion.  Let me give an example as to why.  Look at these two studies on tart cherry juice, which of course is an anti-inflammatory powerhouse:

http://jn.nutrition.org/content/139/10/1896.short
"Tart Cherry Juice Decreases Oxidative Stress in Healthy Older Men and Women"

http://bjsportmed.com/content/40/8/679.abstract
"Efficacy of a tart cherry juice blend in preventing the symptoms of muscle damage"

Notice that the researchers put the participants in the above studies on a twice daily regimen.  This makes sure that their plasma and tissues have a nice steady supply of the anti-inflammatories in the red tart cherry juice.

Foods, of course, take awhile to be digested and metabolized into the blood stream, so those are harder to calculate.  Juices hit the blood stream much more quickly, but, of course, you don't want to "over juice" necessarily.  So it's best to play it safe and make sure you are getting at least hopefully two high-powered meals per day and spread out certain supplements if possible as well.
