    I ha my brekkie then 2/3 hrs later went to gym.

    When I got home I felt so weak and couldn't stop shaking.
    So I made lunch (never made a ham sarnie so quick!!)

    But what do you guys eat before you go exercising and how long before exercising do you eat?

    I was thinking would glucose tablets help with shakes, but how would they affect me what with taking xenical too, would i get tangoed!!:D

    Hi hun, I normally have a banana about an hour beforehand.

    However, can I ask if you have done much exercise before this? The reason I ask is that if you have pushed yourself too hard too soon then you will get the shakes.

    Make sure you keep yourself hydrated as well.

    Hope that helps a little bit. x

    if you can, try something liek lucozade light or the still orange flavour after the gym... or you can sip it towards the end of the workout. that may help a bit with the shakes. it could be that you are pushing yourself too hard, or that you arent hydrated enough.

    normally tho..i leave 2 hours to 2.5 hours after a meal, and have a small banana, 1 hr to 45 mins before my work out to give me some natural energy.
