Oatmeal,or bananas, depending on what type of macros for that day. Only maybe 20 gr of protein or so. Usually food, no whey. Chicken, or lean beef pattie.

4 eggs, 4oz 90% lean ground beef, 3 slices fat free cheese 1 cup brown rice most amazing omelet ever! I sometimes use canned chicken instead of beef.

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.

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.
