era252 Posted January 16, 2016 Share Posted January 16, 2016 I used to take a Five Hour Energy shot in the morning to help give me energy before I worked out, and am looking for a suitable replacement. I know that an actual Five Hour Energy is completely off-limits, but want to try and find a suitable replacement. For context, I can't have a full meal before working out without getting sick and sluggish. To try and comply with the suggestion of having some protein or fat before working out (as the "Whole30" book states that something is better than nothing pre-workout), I now have a piece of bacon before I work out, but even that can upset my stomach once I start. I've tried using coconut water since starting and that has been okay, but not quite what I'm looking for. I'm also thinking of taking Solgar, B-Complex (which was recommended by Tom in another post) to help replace some of the energy shot. I know this might become less of an issue as I continue in the program and my body gets more energy from foods, but since starting my workouts have shortened and become less effective. Can anyone recommend something that might help? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
