if you workout without food, you won't be able to burn calories. so, I don't like that, when people workout their proteins.
Another pretty good tasting idea:
Honey and Almond granola cereal, with half a chopped up banana and added vanilla casein protein powder.
Altogether about 375 calories, 45-50 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fat, 17 grams of protein(including the 5-ish grams found in the skim milk i used).
To make it better, have it alongside a whey protein shake in the morning, which I do. Sometimes after work too, before taking a nap.
Another 'secret' is using coconut oil on a lot of stuff... white chicken breast + rice + coconut oil makes it moist and not so bland. Olive oil i use more for beef... but you can use coconut oil there too. The fat in either helps you lose weight.
whole wheat bagel + two table spoons of peanut butter + a whey shake with skim milk is another super easy option for all your healthy fats, carbs, and protein as well.
should probably just make a diet recipes thread that has all these things. everything ive said so far literally takes less than ten minutes and is super cheap...
Update on this here weight lifting.
Still works wonders training on a fasted stomach. I've divided chest and tricep to their own seperate days, that way I can really focus on going max seeing as my triceps are ****ing annihilated after doing the dumbbell bench press excersise which I do mainly for the chest.
Feels better, too.
I hate doing any sort of physical exercise on a full stomach. Empty maybe not the best, as I dont want to be hungry. But plenty of liquids usually hits the spot. I guess it depends on what you are doing and energy requirements.
