Protein, Carbs or both.
I wouldnt want my body to spend most of its time on digestion.
I take in 25G of protein(wpc) and 40G of carbs(maltodextrin)

Personally what works for me pre workout is protein(chicken, turkey, steak, fish, eggs), fats (olive, flax or walnut) and fibrous carbs(mainly broc).

I always down a portion of protein and a portion of carbs, with a ****load of vitamins/etc and stimulants. I also make sure to have a liter of water in me.
Totally depends what type of diet you're on imo, as well as how long before the workout the meal is being consumed. You will always want some protein. If it's a couple of hours before the workout, some oats or other slow-digesting carb along with some whole food protein would probably be a good choice. If it's an hour or so before, maybe a bagel or some other whole food medium-high GI carb with some whey. If it's within half an hour of the workout you'd probably want some malto or dextrose with some whey. Like I said though, the type of diet you're on plays a large role. If you're on a low carb diet, you would probably only have carbs post-workout.

i take 25g malto and 25g protein blend 15-30 minutes prior if I workout first thing in the morning, if not then I usually have a normal meal with carbs and protein.

vido I am on a healthy diet.
I eat oats and eggs at breakfast, a protein shake between breakfast/lunch SUbway (12") for lunch (m-F) at 2:30 i have 1/4 cup of mixed nuts, 1/4 cup of beans before I work out (used to be english nuffin and jelly, but i got really sick of that after a few days) I then go to the gym, have my second shake when I get home, cook dinner usually I wait at least a half and hour. and before bed I have 1/4 cup of cottage cheese with fruit.
I dunno if this is specific but I am bulking so there you go. I get around 3100 cal a day.
(i also go to the gym 4 days a week hitting one part a week).
