should you train before a big meal

Hi all,

i get in from work at around 7, have my dinner and 7.30, and in the gym an hour later, would it be beneficial to go gym before i have my dinner, so i can absorb more(?), as when i come back to the gym at around 10 i cant seem to stomach any solids, only a whey shake.

make sense?

cheers

    I eat few hours before(want food to digest so i can use it during training) so breakfast/lunch/afternoon meals are all carby.
    Then i train in evening(6-7pm),
    whey shake after (7pm)
    Then around 1hr later, solid meal so my shake isnt "interupted" by food/hindered with regaurds to digestion times(debateable if whey is digested anyway by then).

    You're better-off eating before you go to the gym as long as you leave enough time between eating & training. If you don't feel sick during training, you've left enough time. As you don't feel like eating dinner after you get back from the gym, that's another reason to eat it before going.

    I have to train before eating. If I had a big meal it would take me a good 2 hours before I could do anything.

    Usually get the gym aroun 16:00, then have a big meal around 18:30 (I also take a ProRecovery shake just after training)

    Lucky would be a better word to use than strange.
