Hi, just have some questions about working out in the morning.

I get up, eat my first meal:

Oats + Milk + a bit of jam = 24p - 18f - 75c - 560 cals

And since i take one of my gainer shakes in the morning, it'l now be pre-wo.

Gainer + Milk + 2 tps of olive oil = 66p - 48f - 95c - 989 cals

So all together pre-wo i get 1555cals, is this to much? Should i cut down on the gainer, or cut it out completely?

After that i'm hitting the gym.. Then back home for another gainer shake + a banana, just without the olive oil this time. And after an hour i swallow some chicken, rice and broccoli. That gives me around 530cals.. When you add all this up it comes up to almost 3000cals, and that's just before noon.. And im suppose to have 2700 cals during the WHOLE day. But then again, it is '4' seperate meals, breakfast-pre.wo-post.wo-meal4.

What do you guys think? Pointers are greatly appreciated :D

Before you working out its best to not have much fat so mainly carb and protein same for post workout so the fat doesnt slow down the foods digestion

Hi, just have some questions about working out in the morning.

I get up, eat my first meal:

Oats + Milk + a bit of jam = 24p - 18f - 75c - 560 cals add protein.. there is none

And since i take one of my gainer shakes in the morning, it'l now be pre-wo.

Gainer + Milk + 2 tps of olive oil = 66p - 48f - 95c - 989 cals im guessing this is post-workout? drop the gainer, make a shake with oats, whey , banana, for post-workout id say 1 cup of oats 2 cups of milk and a banana

So all together pre-wo i get 1555cals, is this to much? Should i cut down on the gainer, or cut it out completely?

After that i'm hitting the gym.. Then back home for another gainer shake + a banana, just without the olive oil this time. And after an hour i swallow some chicken, rice and broccoli.

no, you mixed up his pre and post workout.

I would only have the gainer shake once, either pre or post, and I would not buy it again in the future.
I personally would not put fat in the gainer shake.

I think you are taking in too many of your calories at once, I think it would be fine to eat 3k, but spread it out a bit more.

Your in luck today is my weights day so I wake up about 615 get dressed pre-workout eat/shake then cycle then gym then cycle back.

Today preworkout

50g oats + wheatgerm
2 whole eggs
water

= 317kcals
29g carbs
18g pro


Post workout

1 whole egg
3 egg white (bit pussy I know)
Small
2 slice of fruit soda bread (lush as hell)

=431 kcals
65g carbs
19g pro

Then I normally have a snack about 2 hours after post-workout of at least 20g pro

Ideally I am sort of aiming to hit the macros below for "weightloss" which is really just lean gains.

What im about to post is going to be harshly criticized lol.

I typically wake at 5am, have 6 BCAAs, followed by 1.5 scoops of SP 250, then hit the gym at 5 45am. I know, I know, empty stomach lifting is a NO NO here:)

RIght when I get home from the gym, I take 4 more BCAAs, followed by this meal:
-1 cup oats cooked in water
-1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
-1 pack splenda
-cinnamon
All mixed into a bowl, along with:
-1 scoop ON Complex Protein Powder in shaker with water.

Then I eat at the office again at 9am.

Is that STRAIGHT after your workout or is it the 'real' meal, 1-2 hours after your wo?

Are you working right after you wake up or do you wait a bit?

Get up at 6
Have your Pre-wokout at 6:30 - Oats, whey , banana, milk
Workout 7-8
Postworkout shake/meal - 8:30 - 2:1 carb to protein ratio meal
PPWO meal - 9:30 - Complete P+C+F meal
Uni @ 10 :)

the meals and amount will vary on your exercise and what you need to meet your macros

Postworkout shake/meal - 8:30 - Gainer shake
PPWO meal - 9:30 - Complex meal

If you are working out right when you get up, I would suggest a higher G.I. source pre-workout.

I.E) Honey, Yogurt, Fruit, etc... + Whey Isolate. :)

Having oats or any stuff like that immediately pre-workout, it won't help your energy at all...
