I work out when I get up in the morning so I drink about 26 grams whey in water about 1/2 hour before workout. After workout I take 52 grams immediately after.

I always eat something before a workout. Usually a piece of eziekel bread with some natty pb and i drink some xtend as well. Seems to do the trick for me

I personally like training on an empty stomach when doing these type of diets. When I get home I'll take in 1 scoop when then 12-20 minutes later 1.5 tbsp of flax.

Someone in this thread suggested that they workout fasted on a CKD because of the depletion and fat loss benefits. This is a false statement as you will get the same depletion/fat loss benefits on a CKD or low carb variant such as the AD regardless of whether or not you eat pre workout (unless you are working out on a carb up day). It is when you ingest carbohydrates and begin releasing insulin preworkout that you can offset depletion and fat loss. For this reason, it also does not matter when you choose to do cardio during the day on this diet as you will achieve the same fat loss benefits regardless of whether or not you do it fasted.

I work out first thing in the morning..
For the first month or so on the AD i would drink 1.5 scoop whey/2tbsp EVOO before working out. It was hard for me to stop my pre workout meal, but i actually like it better now to be honest.
My only problem is it is a bit harder to get down all the cals losing that time not eating.
