Nope, I don't have anything offhand. I haven't been saving nutritional studies unfortunately... most of the stuff I have been saving is related to exercise performance but not combined with nutrition.

In theory, stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system right before you need strong sympathetic activation for a workout/race is not a smart idea. AFAIK from experience and anecdotally, pre-workout anything food besides like BCAAs is not very beneficial... hence most of these "unofficial" results agreeing with the theory. Shrug.

Peri- and post workout nutrition is where all the money is going and rightfully should be because that's where the most "difference" is made. Then again, the difference also depends your goals.... PWO fasting is beneficial for things and PWO CHO/PRO is beneficial for others...
