Is it necessary to maintain a gap between exercise and breakfast?
Q: I am a 30 year old service person. Early in the morning I do some routine physical work out for 20 - 30 minutes. But the problem is, there is no big gap between my work outs and my heavy breakfast - hardly 10-15 minutes. I read in articles that there should minimum 30 minutes gap between workout and bath and breakfast. But in my case its not possible because of my tight schedule. Please advise me whether this practice is advisable, if not suggest some alternatives.
A:You are right. You should have a minimum gap of half an hour between exercises and breakfast. You can try the following options: - Wake up 20 minutes early. - Set realistic goals. Even a 20 minute work out should be good enough. - You can fit in these 20 minutes at any time of the day - even after a hard day's work. - You can do a 20 minute work out for 4 days a week and have a good swim over the weekends. - Walk as much as you can. Do not take the car out for short distances. - You can have your business meetings at the swimming pool or the jogging track. I hope these tips will prove helpful to you.
