| | What do you eat before training?
I have had a hard time getting the right diet down before training.
I lift and run, but I am fine with what ever I eat before as long as it's not right before I work out, but I have BJJ on Thurs at 6PM and Sat at 10AM and I feel like I am going to puke for the most part. I used to try and eat as little as possible and tried drinking more protein shakes but that made me feel worse.
So far I found this works the best as far as having energy and not feeling like shit for practice:
On Thursdays I eat
-1/2 a cup Oatmeal or 2 eggs and a flour tortilla for breakfest
-around 11 AM I will eat half a turkey sandwich (or a hard boiled egg)
-around 2:30 PM I will eat the other half (or a small salad)
-around 4:30 I eat a handfull of cashews and blueberries
-and I drink 1.5 liters of water throughout the day
(I don't drink any coffee or energy drinks those days)
On Saturday morning I will eat either a handfull of cashews and blueberries or half a protein shake, but I am considering not eating anything at all as I feel like I am digesting while I am rolling...no bueno!
(I try not drink the night before if I can deal with it)
I could feel like shit because I am older or I simply just am not in the shape I need to be, but I feel like my diet is what has the biggest impact.
If anyone has any suggestions I would be greatfull for the advice.
