I know that I should eat something before lifting in the a.m. but I have no idea what I can just grab and eat as soon as I get up. Can any of you folks give me some quick and simple ideas? Thanks.

Try a protein shake with low carbs and mixed in WATER- I take in about 30grams...30-40 mins b4 lifting...i've been going on an empty stomach for over 3 years, and have tried a change and really like it....

i have a 1/2c of cottag cheese mixed with a tbsp of flax.

quick, easy, goes down fast, doesn't cause a ruckus.

Whatever you eat,ensure that for 1gram of carbs(low gi) you get 1gram of protein.Ex. 30g.carbs/30g.protein and minimal fat as it "blocks" Growth hormone secretion.
