    depends what you eat before your training?
    I always have chicken with a slow burning carb like rice 1hr before the gym, this gives me plenty fuel for my workout.

    Knowledge is power...keep educating yourself!

    my reading on mt has resulted in me eating this 1 hour before training:
    egg whites/chicken + oats/weetabix + apple/banana + flax seed oil

    I always thought that pre workout we shouldn't have no fats as it will slow digestion down.

    Is that right?

    If it was closer to training it would become more of an issue in my opinion, but with it being 1 hour away, it is fine.

    naturalben - How are you feeling during training? ? ?

    Do you think you would be better suited to reduce some of the whey you have 30 mins prior to training and include more carbs there? ? ?

    i feel ok but have always had a whey shake before training so maybe i should move the pre workout meal closer and get rid of the shake.. wouldnt you say 1 hour away abit close? i migth throw it back up on a hard leg day

    so i have 3 options:

    1) keep my meal 2 hours away and keep my shake 30 mins before
    2) add some carbs to my shake
    3) get rid of the shake and move my meal to 1-1.5 hours away?

    what would you say? and is 1-1.5 hours good?

    thanks,ben

    Its what you eat in the days and hours before you train that will power your workout not what you eat just prior to them. Personally if I eat anything less than 2 hours before I train there is a high possibility that it will end up on the gym floor. If you can eat have anyhting in your stomach just prior to training then go for it. If you can't it will make you feel bloated and very uncomfortable.

    ok cheers so i think ill get rid of the pre workout shake, and move the meal 1.5 hours instead of 2 hours from the workout and see how i feel then if i feel bloated ill move back if i feel fine ill leave it if i feel like i have no energy ill move to an hour away.

    thanks, ben
