I have a question regarding pre-workout/breakfast carbs. I wake up around 6:45-7:00 am and train at around 9:00 am. I feel like when I consume a high carb breakfast, that I don’t have as much energy as when I just do something like protein/fat and maybe some veggies.
Is this psychosomatic, or could it possibly be that carbs pre-workout is not necessary, and possibly hinders performance due to insulin issues? Would it make sense that after a night’s fast, I perform better on just protein/fat? Is that even possible?
