I put oatmeal in the Magic Bullet and blend it to powder. Add almond milk and a serving of whey protein and then it’s off to the basement.
Option 2 is a protein shake and a banana.
In theory this should probably be correct but it isn’t for me. If I do a high intensity lift like squats where lots of blood gets sent to the muscles and my blood pressure increases rapidly then I get nauseous.
If I have some carbs in me then this doesn’t happen.
I know a guy who eats eggs and drinks coffee in the morning and waits til after his workout to eat carbs. It works for him and he’s strong as shit. I tried it and it happened to be leg day and my workout was terrible.
I told him about my problem of becoming nauseous during a tough workout and he recommended I keep hard candy in my bag. He said eating a piece of candy when I felt that way would fix it because it’s the result of low blood sugar. I started carrying Jolly Ranchers in my bag and I haven’t had a problem since. I switched to Starburst because I kept biting the Jolly Ranchers and it was killing my teeth.
I eat plenty of carbs so perhaps it’s more of an issue with blood sugar levels during the workout instead of fuel levels.
