jcarbon2 Posted August 16, 2015 Share Posted August 16, 2015 Its been a while since I have been in here but I wanted to get some feedback on Fat and PreWo. I have been going the one hard boiled egg and some cashews (18g) but it has always made me feel a bit strange. So I started to do some research and found a web article on fat and pre-workout. For years the golden standard for many bodybuilders has been a 2 to 1 ratio of carbs to protein for their pre and post workout meals. Now they are finding out that Carbs PreWO might cause too much of an insulin spike and not having carbs Pre-Wo is better for cutting fat. So I started wondering why we keep eating fat before working out. I found this article. http://www.flexonline.com/nutrition/eating-right/diet-tips/how-much-fat-should-you-consume-pre-workout So anything above 10g (study) will inhibit growth hormone, slow down the digestion of protein (which you want to rapidly reach your muscles) and it can blunt blood flow to muscles. So, based on these studies, its best not to consume any fat pre-wo or less than 10grams. Any feedback by the experts on why I should have those cashews (they put me over the 10g limit) If I have two boiled eggs I get 11g of fat. So thats a not so great idea.
