    Good pre workout meal?

    Is this a good preworkout meal:

    1/4 white meat rotissiree chicken with no skin, a small side of green beans, a small side of potatoes au gratin, 1 apple, and 500 ml of water.

    Could I get away with losing the apple? Do I really need it?

    I'd lose the potatoes au gratin, as don't those have milk/cream/cheese?

    I'd use some oatmeal, a small protein shake w/water, and that's about it.

    Hey Swole would you use a whey or casein shake with your pre workout meal?

    What if I ditch the potatoes and instead have a side of brocolli.

    Also, could I ditch the apple? This would be the only fruit I have in my diet. Should I use it or lose it? Is it necessary to have this apple pre workout?

    If you want carbs pre-workout, then eat the oats. If you don't, have the brocolli (fibrous carbs, not a starch) and chicken.

    The apple you don't need if you are having either of the above options, no.

    Thanks Swole. Like I said, would you recommend a whey or casein shake as part of your pre workout meal?

    I use whey, I don't believe it matters because you are having oats anyhow.

    Hey Swole, why do you say it doesn't matter what kind (whey or slow acting) because you are having oats?

    Because it's not your only form of nutrition/energy, and you will have PWO meals to come.
