    Pasta Before Workout

    Before you get upset that this has been asked numerous times, I've been looking for a straight answer for some time and to no avail

    Is pasta a good carb source an hour to half hour before a workout?

    I'm not as familiar with the glycogen shuttling process as I should be so I can't comment but I remember people saying it might just make you feel tired

    Thanks in advance for your time

    Not for me. Pasta would probably make me puke during my workout.

    Carb timing or meal timing is really up to you and your personal preference. Whatever timing for your own body and digestive system will be all up to you.

    That being said, glycogen stores will be at its optimal level if you are sufficient calories on a daily basis. That being said, unless you're not eating for several days, you're fine.

    Might just skip the pasta and go with a pb sandwich with banana.

    Really need to do my research because I feel like diet is so so important to every aspect of bodybuilding

    100% correct.

    Remember, timing and frequency of meals is all subjective to you and everyone will have a different preferences.

    Just remember that the #1 rule of thumb in nutrition is to hit your macros and micros on a daily basis, and that should attribute mostly to your results already.

    That being said, arbitrary names of the food you consume does not attribute to your success. Thus saying you're eating pasta or pb sammich + banana doesn't really tell us if you're doing the above.

    My dad was a big bb in the 80's, before a lot of pwo's were available. Him and his lifting buddies used to boil a pot of pasta, stick the whole thing in a blender, and slam that before they'd workout. That and a large vat of black coffee, lol.

    It's entirely irrelevant, sans person preference and the context of total daily nutrition.

    For me, I train in an overnight fasted state because that's my preference.

    Pasta has always worked for me before the gym.
    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

    I do great on a plate of pasta. Lots of power.

    I must combine it with fats and protein though, otherwise the insulin response would make me sleepy.
