Pre workout I like to have either cookies or muffins with a cup of egg whites. Post workout I time with dinner so it's a full meal of meat, vegetables and starch.

Im pretty easy going.

60min pre I have a large apple, 1.5 scoops of Whey, 3 caps fish oil. 

Post I have 200g grilled steak, 1 cup of rice, some random steamed veggies, 1g vit C, 400iu vit E, 1g carnitine. 

I do miss a good pre-workout supp, but I train late and I like to be able to fall asleep before 11PM.

I dunno a lot. But fish oil acts as an anti inflammatory correct? I dose mine in the morning as far away from my lift time as I can.

Mmmm, post workout steak!!

For pre workout I like a cup of coffee and chug some dextrose (20g) and lite salt.

For post workout I just go with my normal prepped food. Usually rice and either chicken or beef with veggies.

Post workout favourite for bulk. Ground beef, scrambled eggs, rice. All mixed up with sriracha sauce. 

With a lb of ground beef and 6 eggs you’re looking at over 2000 Cal’s and a boatload of protein.

Thats one of my favs as well except I regularly buy a mix of lean gr beef/pork/veal, then add brown rice, or quinoa, eggs (sometimes just whites) and sometimes sriracha, but I prefer gochujang (korean red pepper paste, and very hot). When I add veg I'll mainly go crucierous with a lot of broc or cauliflower, or skin on sweet potato as the need arises.

Wife and I are big fans of a Korean food dish called bibimbap which is essential ground meat, veg, rice and egg of top, then a liberal helping of Gochujang. Been eating that regularly for years.

I really like to stick to easy to digest foods... rice crispy squares, greek yogurt, protein powders, white rice, etc... 

Nothing is really set in stone.

I usually work out on an empty stomach (at 4:30 or 05:00 am).

If I train in the afternoon it will be 3 hours after lunch (vegan protein) and PWO I will have a double scooped protein shake and plant based yoghurt.

Lol, I guess it's worth noting that the recipe may not be physique or gastrointestinally friendly

I'm kind of surprised to the amount of people using LARGE meals, or higher fat content sources in a pre workout meal. 

To those who are using these, how far ahead of the workout are we talking? like 2-3 hours prior?

Wouldn't you be concerned with the digestion rate interfering with your training? I also am assuming none of you guys would be introducing Intra workout drinks as well?

@Corey5150 intra workout I use just a bcaa blend

I guess I should have specified more like intra carb sources... I wouldn't worry too much inregards to BCAA by themselves
