    Morning workout diet?


    Im going to have to start workin out in the am due to my new job. My question is when to eat carbs.

    Before bed, before workout, after workout and small amounts for lunch, then no carbs for the rest of the day except for before bed.
    All bein complex carbs except PWO

    Thats what Im thinkin about doin, does this look ok?

    Before bed will release more insulin reducing GH secretion. Eat some cottage cheese before bed. I don't like to eat carbs before bed time.

    It's not that much, the protein is more important.

    grits are really starchy its made out of straight corn, id go with a lower GI carb like oatmeal. try eating a pack/cup of oats like half hour to an hour before lifting.

    i usually go with 8-10 egg whites and 1/2 to 1 cup oats 30-45 min. pre-workout. egg whites are very light, hardly know you ate them, and oats keep me from feeling like i'm starving half way through my workout..

    Good posting. I agree with the oatmeal. It's a staple for my pre-workout meal in the morning.
