-- - not if you want to lose weight anyway!!
I know ! I know!! -- All of these "studies" which tell us different things. However this one at least makes logical sense to me . I have always eaten a banana before running in the morning - I try to do it a couple of hours before I run - plus drink water. The logic of doing this has always also made sense to me - to be hydrated and to supply blood sugar for energy.
BUT - as this article points out - maybe not a good idea if losing weight in one of your priorities !
