About a month ago i switched to working out about 1 hour after i wake up. About 45 minutes before i hit the gym in throw back a mix of protein powder and oat flour (totals 65g protein, 100g carbs and 11g fat). I feel fine on this mix on all but Legs day! I’ll normally start to feel really sick about 3/4 of the way through the workout, then by the time i hit the high reps squats at the end i’ve normally been sick!
I’ve tried various things like halving the oats i have and adding some Vitargo to bring the carbs up (i want the bulk of my carbs to be in pre, post and meal 1 of the day). This worked quite well but still felt like i was going to puke. Tried just Vitargo and protein. That was ok as far as feeling sick went but felt really dizzy and then threw up with no warning when walking to the car. Guess i had a peak then a sudden crash.
Does anyone else work out first thing and have any tips? I’m thinking of just having a small serving of oats and protein next week, then adding something sugary like fruit juice/coconut water while i work out. Anyone else do something like this?
