Hey everyone, I joined the gym about a week ago. I wake up around 6am, have a cup of coffee and off to the gym. I’m at the gym around 7am. I walk on a treadmill for an hour, burning about 300 calories. I’m male, 6’1” and weigh about 240 lbs. I’m back home around 9am, take a shower and have breakfast. I typically have either egg whites and turkey bacon or cottage cheese with blueberries. Around 11am, I feel so tired and feel like I need a nap. I’ve actually been napping for about an hour everyday since I started. I feel so exhausted.
The question is, what should I be eating before and after the gym so I don’t feel so tired? I love going to the gym and feel good that I did something good for myself, but I hate the feeling of being exhausted. TIA
