    Cool Meals after morning cardio

    I am currently on a strict cutting diet and was wondering about my morning meals. I am a personal trainer, so some days I am getting up at like 4 am to do morning cardio before a 530 am client. I don't have time to eat what I usually do on the days I don't have early clients. Here is what i am currently doing.

    Cardio-45 min. (empty stomach)

    Meal 1
    Labrada Lean Body Breakfast shake (40g protein, 23 g
    carbs, 7g fat)

    Meal 2
    10 egg whites/ 1/2 cup oatmeal



    Should I get up earlier and make the eggs and oatmeal for my 1st meal and then have pro/fat for my 2nd meal? I want to be very strict so I don't want to combine pro/carbs/fat in a meal like the shake has. Please help.

    What if you are not lifting? I am recovering from surgery and CANNOT lift, just cardio for now, does that mean little to no carbs?

    Most people prefer that for sure.

    I, however, really crave the energy from my first meal being pro/carb...

    It all depends on your goals, needs, and how your body reacts... however, do your best to not include fats and carbs in the same meal... that much is clear cut for everyone...

    You still needs carbs for energy, right? I would try to consume the majority of my carbs in the AM... since you are not ingesting PWO carbs...

    Yes, I'm the same way. Most people prefer/suggest a Pro/Fat meal afterwards... but, I prefer pro/carb.... all depends on your goals and how your body reacts.... I just can't handle not having the carbs in the AM...
