Alright, pencils down. Time to reveal the answers.

#1 – The best time to workout

The best time is anytime that you can be consistent. You won't lose weight faster if you exercise on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. And if you exercise right before bed it can actually keep you awake.

The good news is that you don't need to exercise for an hour a day and you don't need to go to a gym. Use my new at-home workouts three times per week and you'll save time and look great. It's that simple.

#2 – What's the best thing to eat before and after exercise?

A simple secret to weight loss is eating only when you're hungry. You don't need to be like a pro-bodybuilder, force feeding expensive pre- and post-exercise shakes and pills down your throat.

If you want to lose weight and feel great, the trick to having a great workout is eating not too much, and not too little. You could call that The Goldilocks Diet.

The simplest approach is to have your Daily Energy shake about 15-20 minutes before exercise and then 20 grams of protein after your workout. That's it. There's no need to chug a carb drink (you're not a marathon runner) or to eat a big steak while you're still sweaty.

Just eat when you're hungry and don't eat when you're not. Oh, and if you want to have a coffee, that's fine too. There's nothing wrong with a coffee a day.

  PS - The answer to the bonus question is...

…Bally's 6-pack abs.

It's true. A few years ago on a visit to the vet, the examining doctor said, "Wow, your dog has 6-pack abs!"

I'm not making this up. And NO, she did not know that I was a personal trainer.

It was really strange.

But I tell that story over and over and over again.

No wonder he likes going to the vet so much. Smiling face (black and white)
