In Response To: in plain English? please! (JimB(A+))

As luck would have it, my answer pushed Thomas' question ino the archives.

Thomas: Hi! Should As eat before exercising to keep the cortisol level down? If one is working out first thing in the morning, is that recommended, or should As eat something? This type A thanks you!

My answer: Generally pre-workout cortisol-blunting is one of the best effects of carbohydrate-loading*, which although normally used only in aerobic-endurance type exercise, has been shown to work as well in resistance training and virtually every other type of athletic pursuit. The trick, and this is the great gift of ER4YT, is to choose the carb properly.

Your questions: 1.) Should A's eat HB carbs before working out? 2.) When before and how much? 3.) Does Bill Phillips' advice to drink coffee and not eat before working out NOT apply to A's?

My answer: 1.) Yes. 2.) Hard to say, probably varies according to muscle/body fat ratio. Experimentation is probably in order. 3.) Yes, probably not applicable, especially if the type A in question is desirous of benefiting with regard to stress lowering effects of exercise.
