Eat first, then exercise _or_ exercise first then eat...

I'm sure there are dozens of websites posting facts about which one is correct... one way or another. As for me, I prefer the order of exercising first, eating second then relaxing (and possibly taking a nap) third.

Years ago I had a girlfriend who professed her knowledge of healthy living.
Okay... do your thing!

No, I just had a big meal and I don't want to 'walk if off'
Maybe exercise improves your digestion. For me it causes indigestion.
Exercise after a meal steals the energy my body uses to digest food.
I'll get back to you in 30 minutes or less.

Yeah, and I do have an example... a pack of lions chase down their prey, devour it and hang out swatting flies with their tails. It has always been thus...
They don't have internet to tell them otherwise.

Eat within one hour after exercise is the best advice for better digestion.
