Hi there all,

Of late I have been experiencing severe stitches (stomach cramps after eating) while trying to gym, particularly trying to jog on the treadmill.

My routine is that I have a bite to eat at about 4pm, and then gym for 40min or so from about 5:30pm or 6pm every day...which I thought would be enough time to allow for my food to digest somewhat before my gym session...however I am still experiencing this severe pain in my side while jogging. (I try to stay away from eating anything after gym because I don't like to eat after 7pm.)

Do you know how long before gym you should eat?....or have any tips on what I should do to prevent this pain? Any advice would be appreciated!!!

Many thanks!!!

Your stitches are possibly not related to eating. There are a myriad of possibilities and an equal number of things to try.

Check the Wikipedia page:

There are some good preventative options there. i rarely get them these days and when I do I just try breathing deeper and pressing on it. Seems to do the trick.

I eat about 15 min before I work out and then 15 min after... I go first thing in morning though. I have only had once where I got kinda sick feeling. Try just having a protein shake or eat less and lighter. I have 3/4 cup of cereal with sliced banana and a protein shake. Then when I am done, I have another protein shake and a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, or if it is later in the day a real meal. Good luck. You just need to play with it.

calories burned
The same you would burn when your body is at rest. You should be cautious when adding none traditional activities with exercise.

Exercise
I love the positive attitude. I think we all have to start somewhere and sometimes people complain about someone ‘just going for a walk’. My response is always the same – guess what, they just did more ...

Every morning. It is part of my routine and I have been doing it since forever.
