Morning trainers, what do you eat and when?

Postby Shicky on Sun May 15, 2011 9:37 am

Having real trouble with morning intake these days and I am not sure at all why as its stuff I used to eat fine before. Perhaps popping a caffeine pill 30minutes before eating maybe didnt help im not sure.

The norm is porridge with fruit and a shake to go with. The shake i've been using is a mates one since its free but my word it tastes dire! Nearly boked in the gym when I burped and tasted it again!

Does anybody not eat anything and rely on the previous day's nutrition? Think I may start trying this, maybe a shake and banana to ensure im not a totally catabolic mess

I wouldnt train with weights in the morning without food in me...and couldnt! i get hypo easy

minimum for me woul be a whey and oats shake with a bit of milk/cream/oil....but when i train at weekends about 9am sometimes i have some eggs and toast first, then a shake with whey and BSD Glyco Active.

Either that or i have just a wee shake of whey then stop in at Morrisons for a cooked breakfast, coffee and tropicana fresh orange mmmmmm

Porridge and fruit will likely cause a sugar crash just when you're about to train. That's why you feel shite probably. If it's first thing in the morning then go with a shake. Blend up some protein with some rice milk, spinach & 1/2 avocado etc. Worked well for me when I trained early.

Rice Dream organic & vanilla.

It is sweet. But I never said I don't liker sweet things... I just avoid them a lot ;)

Rice Dream organic & vanilla is the only one in the UK that I've found that doesn't add sugar.

Porridge, whey and fruit causing a sugar crash? Pretty unlikely unless your very insulin resistant i'd say!

Saying that, I have eggs in anchor butter, with a few bits of veg. Then 30 mins before coffee/caffeine with a big teaspoon of natty peanut butter. Works well for me. I tend to rely on glycogen, I feel much better this way than carbs beforehand.

Which Shicky probably is. Also, it's quite high in simple carbs (depends what fruit you add I guess), so after the insulin spike there will be a crash.

Quite possible, I never eat anything remotely sugary other than fruit as it wrecks my head.

Will definitely give that a try, thanks scott. Probably going to stop weight training until after my exams as although I want to man up and be able to train no matter whats going on in life, I feel my final exams is not the time to try something different. Only 11 days off though and going to run/skip daily so hopefully can shed some fat while eating sensibly

BW stuff (pressups, chins), hill sprints and skipping will be a great plan.

I keep things the same whether I train mornings or lunchtime: Scrambled eggs and oats with water, a little honey and cinnamon and train 90mins after. A good food day helps 24 hours before hand but I find it's not a big issue if this doesn't happen.

should say the issue is not being able to get the food into me like before - i.e. taking 45minutes to eat it all instead of 15mins. Then seemingly no matter how long I wait before going to the gym my stomach feels might delicate and I feel like boking pretty much the entire session!

When I train early on a Sunday, the most I have before I train is a slice of toast with marmite and it doesn't make a hill of beans difference to me and looking at how much fat you carry, you could miss a few meals lardy boy :lol:
