Today it was a cup of rice pilaf, a cup of mixed veg (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots), and two chicken breasts about four hours before the workout. Yesterday I had 4 cups of raw spinach and two cups of chicken, white bean, and corn chili about three hours before the workout. Typically I eat a large meal three to five hours before the workout, but the whole day contributes to glycogen storage. If I don't keep my calories up starting with breakfast, my evening workout suffers. I know this differs between individuals but I was rarely satisfied enough with my energy levels and fueling capabilities to make my morning workouts as productive as my evening workouts. And I like my blood supply to be focused on either digestion or muscles, not both simultaneously when possible.

Can someone show me a guy who is 220 plus and trains fasted? Please (not being a diiiick)

I know a couple of the old USP guys trained fasted, kind of where I first got the idea from Snagency and Muletsolider both did bunches of post on the subject and our very own David Dunn (board admin) used to have a journal on the boards and trained fasted.
Did you want me to try and dig up some old school bodybuilders or strong man that trained fasted? Remember this may seem new to a lot of people, IF is doing a great job of popularizing this, but this practice, idea, and theory has been around for a long time.

I don't train fasted per se as I've eaten about 4 meals before I work out (at 4-6pm), but I never consume anything an hour before training, especially if squatting or deadlifting. I'm asking for trouble if I do.

1 C Oats
2 Whole Eggs
2 Eggs Whites

i train around 5:45 at night, so i usually have about 3 meals down before my preworkout "meal", 1/2 cup oats in 20 grams whey, 20 grams caesin, but i drink that about 1 1/2 hours before training since like rosie said, having to much in the stomach sucks for training
but when i used to train fasted, one time i felt really weak and shaky, and i can't do that again, so i stopped training completely fasted
04-15-2011, 01:21 PM
usually just down a protein bar an hour before, and then some waxy/bcaa/etc.. when i walk into the gym. Thinkin of replacin the bar with some pasta/chicken and see how if the fullness effects me at all

Thanks for all the comments on training fasted. I used to do cardio fasted and feel like Shti after not to mention I looked like I weighed only 180 pounds... I started drinking 30 grams WPI and after an hour of cardio I still look full and pumped. I still wanna try weight training fasted just to see if there's a difference in pump

Plus if I eat before a workout I have a crap ass workout. Also it makes me feel sick to my stomach.
