Just wondering if my food/drink intake before I go to the gym is good/bad/not enough, im 17 years old, I weigh 10 and a half stone (bulking slowly) and im around 5"10, this is what I eat about 30 minutes before I hit the gym//

100g pasta which contains 72g carbs and 12g protein
1 tin of tuna (25g protein)
Protein shake suppliment (cnp pro mass) 54g carbs and 35g protein
2+ pints of diluted juice just to hydrate

It seems alot of carbs and protein and this meal is pretty easy to stomach thats why I eat it, is this good or bad?

If bad have you any suggestions on what to eat first thing in the morning before gym that will fuel me well, this meal does furl me pretty good but id like your opinions

30 mins before the gym? Probably still settling in your stomach and only beginning to digest.

Id say average 30-1 and a half hours depends tbh, how long should I leave it before I go to the gym?

I try not to eat a meal 2 hours before lifting. Although it never works out, and I end up eating a 1000 calorie meal and then lifting after.

Blood for digestion could be used for pumps/fuel your muscles is my thought process.

I just train in an overnight fasted state and then eat when hungry thereafter, which is usually several hours later.
