    what do you eat before a workout?

    I need to eat by mid morning, and often have workouts soon after. I need something that will digest easily, and not weigh me down. Any idea?

    Depending on the workout, I either have nothing, or a heavy meal a couple hours before(ussually eggs, veggies, cheese, and sometimes bacon). That's probably not terribly helpful for you.

    I'd say something either fruit or yogurt/kefir.

    Nothing. Fasted usually. Sometimes I'll get the urge to knock out a bunch of chin-ups and pull-ups at random, but for a sprint or heavy lifting, fasted.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Nada, usually, because it happens after I get home from work, right before dinner. On the off chance I work out right after lunch, I usually eat a relatively small salad.

    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.
