I have been lifting for about 5 years now and every so often I get a churning stomach ache about 30 minutes into my workout (which consists of a 5-minute cardio warm up and then powerlifting exercises for the most part). I always workout in the evening after work and try to get in some sort of small meal beforehand for energy. I suspect that the issue stems from a hydration/electrolyte imbalance but I am not for certain. Can anyone recommend a pre-workout plan that includes what foods/drinks to consume to prevent nausea?
As "JohnP" commented, there's no perfect fit answer.
I will however mention that there are some that are generally known to cause nausea, heartburn, gas or other "gastro" related discomforts during a workout if ingested beforehand.
- high fiber
- high amount of fats
- lots of spice (like Mexican or Indian food)
