    Pre and Post Workout Nutrition Question

    I was doing a post workout nutrition shake after my workout in the morning. Problem is that I get up at 5:00 and workout from 5:30 till around 7:00 so, it throws off my eating schedule and I miss breakfast. Also, It only takes me 10 minutes to get home and whip up 8 egg whites and some oatmeal. I also don't like to eat before I go because it makes me sick to my stomach durning my workout.

    So, I guess the question would be, should I eat anything before going to the gym and what would the benefit be? and If I have a PW shake, should I also eat breakfast when I get home 10 minutes later or skip that meal alltogether?

    I know I've been posting a lot of questions lately so thanks to everyone for giving me advice.

    Thanks. Any idea on my breakfast? Should I wait 2 1/2 hours before eating another meal after my Post Workout shake or go ahead and have the breakfast?

    There's PWO and PPWO.

    eat your solid meal preferably 45-60 min after your PWO shake.

    eat yout breakfast after your shakes.... it can even help with the absorption of protein... but as for carb.. slowly decrease the GI..
    dextose is 100 gi... so.... for your meal.. try white bread or rice... they;re around 88.... then after that get some whole grains... go to. www.ast-ss.com they have awesome article on "right carb to maximize gain"

    I'd preferably NOT workout in the morning, and not on empty.

    Just my take on it.

    Do you think a morning workout is going to hinder my gains somehow? I used to go in the evenings and switched to morning to fit my schedule. I have plenty of energy and have moved up my lifts pretty consistently.
