I'm hungry! Need help now!
I ate a lighter than normal lunch today. It is now 5:00 i have to train BJJ at 7:30. what do I eat that will give me energy not make me feel too full at practice and not make me feel guilty!? Additionally I eat my regular dinner after practice around 10pm. Also, I can't go home and cook I'm leaving from work.
Need help fast!
PS I made this thread because I'm betting I'm not the only one that periodically makes this mistake.
I eat Power Bars personally. They are quick and have about 44g of carbs and between 240-300 calories.
Powerbar makes one that is called cinnamon roll, they finally got it right! delicious.

Almost anything with complex carbs and not too much salt. A couple of pieces of good bread even.
I like to eat a banana wrapped in a slice of wholemeal bread before training.
Premade protein shake from grocery store, or Clif Bar.
Banana is awesome. Add your favorite edible non-human nuts, some water to ameliorate the salt, and you're set.
Good thread idea. Under-pressure edibles before training is a problem I've had ever since I've started juggling a real programming job and judo/karate.
These are too heavy for me to eat before training, but I luuuuvvvveeee the Clif Builder's Bars.
I would throw about 8oz of yogurt with that, and that will make a nice pre-workout snack.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
A bagel with cream cheese is actually a pretty good mix of carbs, protein, and fat that will stay down through an intense training session.
