Exercise - Before or after Dinner?
I bought a exercise bike and would like to know if it's okey if I exercise after dinner.

I eat at about 6o'clock, wait till 8 o'clock and then exercise for 45min.

It would be very difficult for me to exercise before 8 because of all the things I have to do when I get home after work.

Please advise. Tank you

Dear Dee

It is ok to exercise two hours after eating, however to exercise late at night is not ideal for a good nights sleep. Is there any possiblity for you to exercise in the morning?
