LiveFit 3-Phase Approach

The LiveFit trainer is a simple 3-phase program for transforming your body and your life in 12 short weeks. My science-based approach combines exercise, nutrition, and supplementation for results that far exceed what any of those tools could produce on their own. Better yet, you'll leave this program knowing how to pursue the fit lifestyle even without my guidance!

LiveFit with Jamie Eason

Writing, modeling, public appearances, and speaking engagements make up my full-time job. It's a busy and unpredictable lifestyle but I wouldn't have it any other way! I'm thankful for the opportunity to share everything I've learned about training, nutrition, and supplementation over the years in this 12-week program. LiveFit means what it says—adopting a healthy and fit lifestyle.

HELP!! im starting the Live Fit Program on Monday! i workout at 5:00AM everyday, my question is: should I eat my breakfast meal BEFORE I work out, and then my protein shake for post workout..or..should i just eat my breakfast after I'm done with the gym and skip protein drink all together. I've never really ate an actual breakfast before my workout, so i'm not sure what to do..if i eat breakfast before working out, and then a protein shake 1 1/2 hr later...just seems like a lot of food for a span of 2 hours....wut's the best way to go about this because the program says to eat breakfast within 1 hour of waking. any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!

If you read her tips I think she says to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up. I hope this helps, if not sorry. But read her stuff for tips. I will be starting just as soon as I get my stacks.

@rayray0221 Do what the trainer says as close to it as possible! It will feel like a lot of food for sure, but it is meant for muscle building and you don't want to be lifting without any food in your system. The protein is meant to be used to help build lean muscle fast! Your breakfast doesn't need to be huge. If I know I am going to the gym right away in the morning because my schedule is crazy I just eat some ezekiel bread (1 slice) with all natural peanut butter for healthy fat and some protein and some cinnamon on top. Then I will have my shake after, which doesn't need to be more than 8 oz. or sip it over an hour time. Don't need to chug it. :)

OH and usually if I only have some toast in the morning, later in the morning I will have my eggs and turkey muffins (WHICH are amazing so make them they are really easy!) The toast in the morning is just to wake up my metabolism so it's working and not going into starvation mode!

Jamie says to eat an hour after waking. I can't eat before I workout so I always eat after. It just depends on your body. As for me the reason why I eat after is because I get sick if I eat before a workout.

If you can't have a full breakfast, definitely have a little something in your body. Your body needs fuel to burn calories and to keep up with your work-outs! Eat some fruit and toast. I would have a protein drink right after my workout.

Eat something light, even if it's a protein shake and greek yogurt, it will help you workout intensity!!

I would eat something light like a banana, hard boiled egg whites or a quick Greek yogurt... just get something in your stomach (along with water). Definitely drink your protein shake post-workout as your body will need all the ingredients afterwards. You have 60 minutes to really maximize the effects of the protein after you finish your workout, so don't hesitate. =)

Have shake in am before workout along with supplements and then after workout eat your breakfast, that way you have fuel to workout and then protein to fuel your muscles

I would have to agree with rydersmom. If you can't stomach all the food early in the morning, go with a shake with some sort of carbohydrate with it. Possibly blend strawberries and your protein powder with water, then enjoy a nice breakfast post-workout to aid in recovery.

I eat oatmeal and egg whites before I workout. I wait an hour before I go to the gym, and immediately after I workout, I have a protein shake.

If I have to workout in the morning, I have a shake as soon as I wake up, then have my full breakfast after I've showered and gotten ready for work. By then, I'm starving and have no problems eating my breakfast. Personally, I find it really hard to workout on an empty stomach because I'm famished when I wake up and don't have enough energy for a good workout.

Hmm, seems like the program instructions are complex but if it were I, I would wake up and work out after a pre-workout drink then a post-workout drink after depending on your meal and supp plan. It would not make since to eat before then workout and eat again after with a post workout shake.

I get up at 5am for the gym...have a coffee, eat a large apple on the way, and take my protein shake with me to drink straight after weights. Then I can get onto my cardio without stressing about racing home for my protein. Then of course, eat a healthy breakfast. Works for me : )

Eat after. If you have trouble getting through workout, eat before. Simple.

You must have your shake after you workout. Ideal would be to eat a hour after you wake before you workout but that all depends on when you actually wake up.

Maybe invest in a light meal replacement for pre workout, the liquid calories will keep you full and you'll be able to avoid cramp

I'd have a small breakfast before going, something like a hard boiled egg (something with protein) and have the protein shake within 30 min after your workout.

I have what I call my "Get up and go smoothie" then go to the gym and have my protein shake afterwards. Works well for me.

I thought the same thing with the breakfast before a workout (at 0500) and I decided to take my supplements, eat one plain rice cake, ( or you can eat an apple) workout, then drink protein shake after workout, then eat breakfast a few hours later and then...LOL follow the rest! Everyone has different work/ workout schedules so it depends on what time you get up or when you workout! I am done with week one and so far so good! I am feeling great!!!!!! Plus my muscles are sore!!! :) Good Luck

You should always eat something prior to your workout. Otherwise your body goes into starvation mode and it will burn muscle for energy, not fat. I usually have a protein smoothie before workouts and then a protein-packed snack afterwards.
