  • Pre and post workout carbs

    Jordan,

    I have been adhering to my daily caloric intake with no problem but I did have a question regarding pre and post workout carbs. The way my schedule works it makes it difficult for me to eat carbs around that time, I sometimes can, but most of the time I have them later in the evening. Is this worth trying to switch around so I can “bracket” most of my carbs around my pre and post workout and keeping fat intake low as well? If I’m adhering to my daily caloric needs just fine and getting all the basic essentials, would you still recommend changing the carbs around or would it not matter enough to make a significant difference in the long-term. I usually feel like I have enough energy for lifting as well, not a lot of problems with low energy during the day...

    I don't think it matters that much, especially if you've had other meals prior to working out. I guess my main question is, why can't you eat carbs at the meals pre and post workout?

      Well I work from 3-10 PM and I don’t have access to a gym after then, I have been training at 12 PM usually, just the whole pandemic situation made me think I should train in my parents basement which is a ways away from where I live but I sometimes can eat my lunch with a lot of carbs if I have time left over. I have usually been fine to do that when the gyms were still open but the main thing is breakfast because I have it before I train. Oats make my stomach upset as well as any kind of excess dairy or milk products. Would cereal be fine with almond milk? I try to stick to whole grains most of the time and was hesitant to eat cereal every day because it would take up a lot of carbs that were not whole grains unless I ate like Raisin Bran or oatmeal squares. Would it just be better to take a lactase pill if I can’t handle dairy?

        Cereal would be fine, as would really any type of carbohydrate...provided your total fiber ends up being on point.

        You could take a lactase pill if you're wanting to consume dairy, otherwise you could consume non dairy products and no lactase pill.
