Having tried it both ways, I've settled on after, unless I'm working out quite late (a 10:00 am yoga class once in awhile). In that case, I'll have a smoothie with yogurt, frozen fruit, juice and a little honey when I get up, and then have a healthy lunch after the class.

It should be noted that this study was done only on men. It also was intended to measure weight gain and not weight loss. Other similar studies on women show we do not respond the same way and it is better to eat just a little before working out first thing in the morning for higher metabolic impact.

s'mores is probably the cesoolt & funnest (and most nostalgic) camping food. I mean you almost have to make this when ever you go camping or whenever there is a camp fire.For breakfast I like to make anything on the griddle (flat surface) for some reason to me this is the funnest way to cook breakfast and you can do it over a fire. Just plain ole eggs, bacon (or canadian bacon), and potatoes.For lunch or dinner I love steaks or hamburgers but also hot dogs over the fire and great. +3Was this answer helpful?
