    For the purposes of taking supplements on an empty stomach, what is actually considered and empty stomach? And is there any health concern if supplements are taken with food?

    Like when you wake up first thing in the morning. That's an empty stomach. Or if you ate breakfast EARLY maybe by noon time. I don't no if there is any health concerns if you take it with food. I just think you get the best results on a empty stomach.

    I've read that 30 to 45 minutes after a meal your stomach could be considered empty.

    I've read anywhere from 1 1/2 - 3 hours. It vastly depends on what you eat and the rate of your metabolism.

    This is what I've found in my experience of taking things like NO supplements which don't cause nausea an empty stomach (more than 1.5hours) but which wreck havoc if you eat them sooner than that.

    Although it does differ from person-to-person (hey, I know I say this alot, but it's true, there's no set rule for every person)... but, the medical definition of an empty stomach is 2-3 hours after a meal and 1 hour after a beverage.

    I consider an empty stomach when I feel hungry. I'm hungry in the morning. I'm hungry 1-2 hours after a pwo shake. I'm hungry now. I'm hungry about 3 hours after dinner. I'm hungry during school (about 25% of the time). I'm hungry when i'm dehydrated. I'm hungry because im cutting 1 pound a week. T-minus countdown until my next meal = 40 minutes
