OK, i’ll try and make this short&sweet. I don’t care if you’re on the T-dawg 2.0 diet, the only eat ketchup w/ spinach between 2:17-2:38pm diet, or any other diet out there. To maximize performance and recovery, and workout performance should be your main goal. The good body that comes along with it is a nice side effect. When you start looking @ your training in this light, things become simpler and well, better.
So to answer your question, your body does very well w/ carbs in the morning and around workouts. So by working out in the morning, you have both of these factors working in your favor. Eat a good breakfast before your WO, drink your pre/during/post WO drink throughout your WO, then eat a solid food meal afterwards. A nice bowl of oatmeal+some fruit and a lean protein source are good options. Make this a large meal.
Since you’re on the T-Dawg diet, you have an allotment of carbs for the day. Eat most of them around your workout because that’s when you need them most and when they will be put to best use. Personally, I don’t do too well with a diet where the carbs are limited to around 100g on workout days. I’d bump up your carbs to around 1g/lb. bodyweight. Keeping your carbs limited isn’t necessary for fat loss. It’s a matter of energy balance and wise food choices. If you take in 2500 calories and 1g carb/lb. bodyweight using “good” carb choices and make sure you place the majority of them @ breakfast and around your WO, you will see no difference than if you take in 100g of carbs on WO days and 2500 total calories. Well, that wasn’t too short, but it should answer any questions
