I don't know if it's right or wrong but I'd nearly always run on a near empty stomach . Went yesterday morning for 8.5k before breakfast. If I'm running in the evening say 6.30 I'd have a toasted sandwich no later than 4.30 and my dinner when I get back.

Me too always on an empty stomach but not sure if its the right way of going about it or not I just always tend to not go if I eat first!!

I can't do it, I just feel absolutely awful if I do. If I run or swim in the morning I need a light snack about 30 minutes before I exercise.

I can't eat before I do cardio, it makes me feel ill. If I am doing cardio in the evening I won't eat anything after about 3 and then I will eat my dinner after Cardio. If I do cardio first thing in the morning I don't have anything except water in my belly. I don't agree with having the likes of energy drinks they are full of sugar, so unless you are a professional athlete I would stay away from them and stick with plain old water

If I run first thing in the morning then I won't eat anything before. It takes me a very long time to digest food and I feel anything I had even 2 hrs before a workout. If I run after work in the evening (5:30/6ish) I will stop eating at 4:30, but usually don't have any snacks that late.

Not sure what is best for you but I personally can't eat a meal right before I run. I know plenty of people who can, but I just can't. I've never really ran farther than 10k at one time, so not sure how it would affect me at longer distances.

In my experience, you should eat at least a banana before any exercise in the morning

I feel like you need to do what feels right for your body. Personally I do cardio on empty stomach
