pro/carb meal before gym
I read somewhere (prob mens health) that eating a small pro/carb meal before going to the gym will assist in gaining lean muscle mass.
I was thinking about doing this, but I wanted to know can anyone else can vouch for this?

Never heard that one meal before working out will do this.

Its personal preference... Some people feel a pro/carb preWO meal gives them an energy boost, others feel it makes them drowsy... Whatever works for you... Personally, I always eat pro/carb while bulking, and while cutting I only eat pro/carb before heavy leg days.

For the last 4 weeks I have added a pre workout meal (eaten about an hour before my first set) consisting of 1/2 cup of oatmeal, a fuji apple, 1 liter of water, and a Muscle Milk protein shake mixed with the Hood fat free dairy beverage.
I could swear it feels like I have more energy and intensity in the gym.
Than again maybe it's just in my head.

For me it gives a mental advantage. It doesnt realy make me stronger or more energetic, but it gives me the feeling that I should be and that feeling can give me the edge in the gym. Sounds silly but thats how it works for me
