Good points. Usually I'll put down the meal at 3 then hit my first set around 430. End up shooting the humalin r at around 4 so my timing isn't ideal.Think that can totally work.
I think the main issue with meals like that is just to be sure you have the appetite to kill it all.
Personally, I'd put that pre-WO meal like 3 hours before my workout. It's a BIG MEAL and i want it to be semi-digested before I hit the gym. I hate having a full stomach in the gym.
I might just have that meal. Then shoot slin before hitting the gym so I ride that into my large PWO meal of protein and carbs.
Couple things I've noticed. Usually 120 or so g of carbs works with 15 iu slin no problem. The pre workout meal is typically potatoes and chicken.
I never personally had a problem working out fasted or with a full belly but I know alot do. Usually when I get home I'll slam some chicken, pork, oats, fruit, yogurt and I can pound 1 to 2 calories pretty easy. If I start to feel too stuffed I'll switch my last meal to stuff that goes down the hatch easier like salmon (higher calorie density) or some frozen yogurt that slides right down.
My main issue is on some 4k calorie days I'll hit 90g of fiber which isn't ideal but it adds up myfitnesspal. Probably the asparagus and apples I slice up and cook in my oats lol
