Foods To Eat Before Your Morning Jog


3 Min Read

Running on an empty stomach speeds up fat burning process and previous day carb reserves get used as basic fuel. If fasting is not an option, pre-jog meal should not be too heavy and hard to digest. It should provide enough energy and prevent hypoglycemia, prostration, etc. Have juice, coffee, banana, piece of bread with marmalade, honey and peanut butter.

What should I eat before my morning jog and what quantity? Can I go jogging without breakfast? Should I have a coffee before I go out jogging? When should I start if I wake up earlier in the morning? These and many more questions are posed by beginners when they decide to try practicing morning jogging.

Establish A Jogging Routine

First of all, it is important to mention that in case you are a sprinter, you should get used to waking up early and jogging before noon. It is almost a rule that races start at 10 am, so it can be a problem for those who are used to jogging after work and in the evening. That is why it is important that you adapt your body to breakfast before training, as well as going to the bathroom, so that you won’t have difficulties during the training or the race.

Breakfast Before A Morning Jog

But, what would be best for you to eat really early before morning jogging, before school or work, the one at 6, 7 or 8 am?

It is a really good question, because the morning meal before running can contribute to better results during running, but can also cause digestive problems since you run after a meal.

It is important that the meal is not too heavy and hardly digestible, but still, at the same time it should provide enough energy for the running itself, so it would prevent hypoglycemia, prostration, etc.

We are all different (we’ve heard this so many times, but it is the truth), so there isn’t one 100% right way to go about it. What’s important is that you try couple of types of meals before running:

Running Without Having Breakfast

Sometimes it is good that you intentionally go out running without having eaten. Since the reserves of carbohydrates from the previous day are mainly used up, running with an empty stomach in the morning will speed up the fat burning process and will be used as basic fuel. Morning training without any food eaten should be easy footing up to 45 minutes. Have a glass of water before training.

Foods To Consume Before A Morning Jog

Running With A Small Amount Of Food Eaten So That You Can “Delude Your Stomach”

If you really have a problem with your stomach, if you can hear it begging for some food, you can delude it with a piece of bread and a layer of marmalade, honey and peanut butter. You can have integral cookies, a banana or something similar to get some feeling of satiety.


After waking up, you can have a glass of freshly squeezed citrus fruit juice or a cup of tea with some honey. Both variants provide energy through vitamins and minerals.


It functions as a laxative, so the first time you run having had a coffee try not going too far since you’re experimenting. Some typical meals before morning jogging.

मित्रों ,आज तेजी से बदलते विश्व के माहौल में, दुबारा आर्थिक गुलामी का परिदृश्ये बन रहा है। हमें इस दौर से निपटने के लिए , दोहरी मुद्रा नीति अपनानी होगी। जैसे , देश के भीतर तो रुपया ही चलता रहेगा व् एक्सपोर्ट , इम्पोर्ट हेतु सामान खरीदने हेतु डॉलर की बजाये सोने को मुद्रा के रूप में अपनाना होगा। लेकिन इससे पहले विश्व के दूसरे देशों को अपने साथ लाना होगा। यदि भविष्ये में डॉलर मुद्रा का अस्तित्व डूबा , तो क्या होगा। आप समझ सकते हैं की कितने लोग , देश बर्बाद हो जायेंगे।सभी देश डॉलर में वयापार कर के , अमरीका को मजबूत बना रहे हैं। न चाहते हुए भी , प्र्तेक देश मजबूरन ,अपनी स्थिति मजबूत बनाने के लिए डॉलर नमक मुद्रा अपने पास रखे बैठा है।जबकि सभी देशों को मिल के अन्ये किसी मुद्रा को सर्व समती से मान्यता देनी चहिये। तब होगा क्या ---सभी देशों को सामान रूप से आगे बढ़ने का अवसर मिलेगा। अमेरिका की दादागिरी खत्म हो जाएगी। जो वेतन दूसरे कन्ट्रीज में होगा वही हमारे यहां होगा। लोग अमेरिका में काम करने नहीं जायेंगे।हमारा देश सबसे आगे होगा --- कैसे -- हमारे यहां 130 करोड़ लोग काम करेंगे। सबको वेतन बढ़िया मिलेगा। जो तेल १ बर्रैल ६० डॉलर का है , यानी ६० * ६३ =३७८० रुपया आज हम देते हैं। लेकिन जब नई मुद्रा होगी तो तब हमारे केवल ६० ही लगेंगे , न की ३७८० रुपया।सोने पर सरकार ने ३० % एक्साइज लगा रखी है , जो की गलत है। जब कॉमन मुद्रा होगी , तब एक्साइज की जरुरत नहीं पड़ेगी। क्योंकि , विदेशी मुद्रा बाहर जाएगी नहीं , मतलब सोना सस्ता , तेल सस्ता। देश मैं खुशहाली। जो हमने पैसा डॉलर को खरीदने में लगा रखा है , वह देश हित में लगेगा। हमारे लोगों का सतर भी विदेश के लोगों जैसा हो जायेगा। सब जगह खुशहाली होगी।
