Hi. I'm concerned about meal timing if I were to wake up and almost immediately go to the gym. I'm considering lifting first thing in the morning to avoid gym traffic and because a lot of top bodybuilders recommend it. I'm willing to wake up earlier to work out, but I can't wake up early enough to eat a meal and have it digest for an hour or so. I'd fall asleep in that hour for sure. So my question is: Will I be able to have a productive workout if all I consume first thing in the morning is a protein shake? Perhaps some sort of carb loaded drink as well? Unfortunately, I can't force myself to eat significant amounts of solid food first thing in the morning. What do people usually do about meals when they work out first thing in the morning? Thanks.
