I am having trouble figuring out a solid meal before my workouts. To give you an idea of what I eat, and the timing of each meal, here is what it looks like:
So I'm in school from 8:30-3:30, Monday to Friday. It takes an hour and a half to get there...which is brutal, but whatever. I wake up at 5:30am and my day begins..
6:00am- Meal 1
-2 extra large eggs, and 7 egg whites (scrambled with spinach, onions and some hot sauce)
- 1/2 cup of oats (with water, 1 tsp of natural PB, 1 greek yogurt and some cinnamon)
12:00pm - Meal 2
- 1 can of tuna in wraps or protein bread (mixed with one tbsp of light mayo
*or another lean protein source
- big salad
-handful of almonds
- Greek yogurt
Leave school at 3:30pm, Meal 3 at about 4:00-4:15pm (pre-workout)
- 2 scoops of whey and 1 banana
I feel like this meal is a big issue... (pre workout)
-rice (basmati or brown)/ or potato(white or sweet)
- 1 container of low sodium cottage cheese
-2 heaping tablespoons of natural PB
If there is anything I need to change, please let me know. I realize I do need to start counting my calories..
I just feel this pre workout meal isn't enough. I feel bloated going into the gym. I need a solid pre workout meal before getting to the gym while I'm driving.
