I eat breakfast in the morning
42g protein
1 pc whole wheat bread
2 caps fish oil
1 multivitamin
1 hardboiled egg

now I was just curious, does it matter how many meals you eat before you go to the gym? like energy or strength wise?

I try and get the majority of my carbs in before i hit the gym late afternoon so i dont feel tired and sluggish i suppose the more you have eaten the more energy you will have. i dont like to train earlier on as i feel tired if i havnt eaten enough

There is not a requirement as to how many meals before a workout. However, in general, the more carbohydrates that have undergone glycogenesis (formation of glycogen from glucose) the more energy you will have.

More carbohydrates = more glycogen.

There's more specifics, but that is the answer you are looking for.

On the other hand, 1 piece of whole bread for breakfast won't do very much for you.
