    Do you eat right before you work out?  Sometimes I feel sick after working out because my food is shaking around in my stomach.

    So weird, I was wondering about this the other day.  This happens to me occasionally, but only if I do a very strenuous workout.  Usually I get nauseated, I’m weak, and dizzy.  It usually passes within a half hour to an hour or so. 

    My daughter has times where she feels the same way but usually it’s after running a few miles in a few minutes for cross country or biking really hard and fast for a long distance.

    I wish I knew why this happened but I have no clue.  Maybe its because we’re over-exerting ourselves, I don’t know.  But I’ve always wondered why, but it always passes quite quickly so I’ve never taken the time to research and find out.

    I feel nauseated when I move around too much in general, but walking is something that’s usually nausea-free from me.

    And thank you for saying nauseated instead of nauseous.

    I don’t regularly feel sick post-workout, but I always get workout chills, which is very annoying.  Sometimes I can’t get warm for hours; the only thing that helps is a warm bath and a mug of hot tea.

    Fiance gets an upset stomach when he works out hard, though, and I will admit that’s definitely worse than the chills.

    Twice, after long runs, I’ve been really, really, awfully sick for about 24-36 hours; I saw a doctor about it after the second time and we think it’s an ischemic reaction to strenuous activity and slight dehydration, exacerbated by a reaction to painkillers.  Yikes!  So don’t take pain killers if you’re working out hard!

    Only when I drink a ton of water during it. I always drink during my workouts, but if I’m really thirsty and drink more water than usual I do feel a bit sick after my workouts.

    @DesireeAnne: Honestly I would say with a granola bar and water you may not be eating enough before you workout. Try eating a little more and waiting about an hour before working out. If you get cold as well as sick it might be your body running on not enough calories and being unable to keep up.

    Every now and then while working out very hard, but not usually.  It’s more likely to happen if I work out while too hungry or too full.  I find that for morning workouts, a piece of fruit or half a luna bar works well.  Later in the day, I try to either time it so it’s 2-3 hours since my last meal or large snack, or have a piece of fruit or something before I work out.

    I didn’t vote because I only experience it when I don’t eat close enough before running. I always make sure I have a bowl of oatmeal or a granola bar half an hour or so before runs.

    I used to get really sick if I ate before I worked out, so I could only do water and then eat afterwards. 

    Now pregnant, I can’t do either… I’m dizzy and nauseous if I don’t eat and totally & completely overwhelmed with nausea if I do! … screwed… lol

    I’ll get this way if I’ve worked out hard and I don’t eat anything soon enough after. The best way I’ve found to keep it from happening is that I work out 2-3 hours after a meal, but I’ll eat half a protein bar before working out so I don’t start feeling wimpy partway through, and the other half right after so I don’t crash. Getting some protein soon after your workout also helps your muscles adapt to working out or something– it’s good for you, in any case. But then, if you’re feeling nauseated, it’s not easy to eat. :-/

    a granola bar is not enough for breakfast when working out, plus it takes your body longer to break down. add an egg for protein so you can get quicker energy!
