When to eat etc. when training in the morning?
I'm just working out a plan at the moment, and although i've got some great diet advice from reading this forum, the timing of my workout is throwing me a bit. Not sure what the best approach is here.
Basically, I will be training for about an hour somewhere between 8am and 9:30am. For breakfast, my plan is for a protein shake, oats, and a bit of fruit. Sometimes toast or eggs now and again to mix it up a bit, and some EFA. But obviously i don't want to be eating all that BEFORE i hit the gym, otherwise I will be spraying it all over the pretty lady in front of me on the treadmill!
So should I train on a totally empty stomach? Then have my food post workout? But then I was looking to take a product like MyProtein's Hurricane, so should I take that in place of the protein shake after my workout? Or maybe should I have a small protein shake in water as soon as i wake up?
But then what about mid-morning snack? I had planned for that around 10:30-11, but that's only going to be an hour or so after my breakfast. Should I basically push everything back, and just focus on eating something every few hours or so?
Oh, and my goal is to bulk up a bit. Not massively so though, but enough to then cut up a bit to give me some definition and shape.
