Not sure where to put this. Anyway. Can anyone give me advice on what to eat before the Gym. I work to 5, then I have to pick up my daughter from nursery, bring her home, and put her to bed (which is a very full few hours and its almost impossible to eat while during this time). Shes usually asleep by 6:45 and I leave for the gym at 7. I can have anything major to eat before I leave work, I can have a protein shake and maybe a bar, but nothing dinner-ery. I also can have anything to eat when I get back from the gym as I usually in bed within 30-45mins from coming home from the gym and if I eat anything that close to going to bed, I will suffer all night and get little to no rest.
Should I just have the shake and a bar of something in work, should I have cereal or something quick and carby and light 15-30mins before the gym or just a banana?
