    Did my body adapt to it?

    I have been working out on empty stomach (took only beta alanine, coffee and bcaa) for several months now. I remember feeling weak and tired when I first started. But over the time I think my body adapted to it, and did not feel weak or tired. I had lots energy and strength to do workout. But yesterday I ate one banana, half cup of oat and a scoop of protein about 1.1/2 hour before I went to gym. And had worse workout of my life. I felt so uncomfortable and weak. I couldn't even perform bodyweight pull ups of 4x6. By the time I got to my last set, I was so tired. I thought carbs and protein are supposed to give strength to perform your workout. Did any of you ever have this kind of experience?

    just eat some carbs 1 hour before the gym not right before the gym and do not overfill your stomach, you can eat something light 10 minutes before the gym like dried fruits and dried raisins etc...your stomach should never be full it can make you nauseated

    Arnold, Ric Drasin, and the oldschool boys used to have scrambled eggs and cottage cheese before a workout. They said it was really important fuel, what with the crazy volume routines they did.

    I take my pre workout supplements (Beta Alanine, BCAAs and coffee) before I leave for gym. I been working out on empty stomach for about six months now, so I think my body adapted to it, now I don't have any energy or strength issues. I don't like to eat pre workout meal because I don't like the idea of waiting for another one to two hours for nutrients to get in my blood streams. I just like to get out of my bed and go to gym. Yesterday was the only time I ate pre workout meal after very long time and it made me feel like something is not okay with my body and made me feel tired. I used to eat pre workout meal long time ago and don't remember feeling this tired. any way I guess my body adapted to working out on empty stomach.

    I agree, try the change for longer than a day and just get acclimated to it. Even Evan centopani eats 30 minutes before training back (according to one of his youtube videos)

    Maybe yes, maybe no. I don't know. It was like doing bench press after doing hundreds of push ups. Only science can tell why.
