OK everyone, I know guys load up on supps before during and after a workout. BUT, what whole food do you guys consume and when?

I've found that no matter how many supps I can pound before a workout, nothing gives me sustained power like whole food. I usually try to get a 500 calorie meal in preworkout at least 30 minutes before I start. I can't eat and then go straight to the gym, doesn't feel very good.

When i'm bulking I'll eat a nice complex carbs meal (like pasta and veggies) several hours before a workout and then again after the workout. I like to prime my body for a workout, deplete my glycogen stores with a tough training session, and then replenish them again afterward.

Right now I'm cutting so I'll eat my "cheat item" before a workout (not when I'm doing cardio). Usually this is a small candy bar, gatorade, soda, granola bar, or something else faster acting. So it would be nice to hear what other foods guys supplment to boost their workouts.

Oatmeal and a shake typically an hour before I workout, I keep the shake to around 20 grams of protein or simply 2 and a half cups of milk. Nothing worse then going in bloated and full.

My food is typically the same, but usually around 4:15 I eat 2 peanut butter and Jelly which's, and a protein shake. I start training at 6:15 usually. After workout is whole food with white rice and chicken.

btw... I can't eat to soon and go train, my workouts are so intense I'll be spending most of the time trying to keep the food down then.
