There was an article in another thread I read here tonight that said preworkout protien goes right to the muscles during and after a workout.
Frankly I find preworkout carbs to be detrimental to fat loss, because most of the workout is spent burning off the carbs just ingested, i.e, using carbs as energy. Without carbs the body needs to rely on an alternative energy source. My body (and I cannot speak for yours) uses fat stores as an energy source.
So, I would say if I were bulking then I would be eating carbs and if I were cutting I would limit them - at least pre-workout.

I would like to add several more options to the list besides.

i didn't vote for any of the above-mentioned options.
Simply speaking..i believe the ideal pre-workout meal is moderate in protein, moderate in fat, no carb.

Protien&carbs. Carbs fuels my workouts, I find carbs also spare muscle burn.

moderate carbs when bulking. low fat and high protein while cutting.
thats what I do atleast. Often I just hit the gym with a empty stomach the moment I wake upp to. Also works
