Eat before or after my workout?

Ask Larry:
Your Question: Larry, when should I be eating? An hour or so before a workout or an hour or so after the workout? If I eat before, I feel sluggish. But if I eat after, I’m starving during the workout. What do you recommend?
Larry’s Response: When your metabolism is cranked up from strenuous exercise your body is burning carbohydrates. After the available carbs reach a lower point, you will start working on other sources of energy, most likely protein (muscle). In addition, sweating – even when it may not be noticed – drives electrolytes out of the body.
