Whats the worst food youve eaten before working out?

Once I ate a serving of plain greek yogurt before a 3 mile run. By mile 2 I was definitely regretting it.

What about you guys?

    I've taken shots between sets during a workout before, probably not my best idea

    A gigantic bowl of Pho. Felt like I was jogging with a fish bowl in my gut. Sweat like crazy from the heat of the broth and peppers too.

    Tonight. Chipotle. Right before doing 30 Day Shred and burpees. I finally started feeling better an hour ago.

    Surprisingly after 40oz of mimosas, I felt really great running 2 miles down the boardwalk at the beach on St. Patricks Day. Shots + working out doesn't sound pretty.

    Spicy Hot V-8 before a run. Won't do that again.

    Anything with jalapeños on it. Especially my guilty pleasure: cheese fries.

    Which is quite often, really. Things that don't mix: cardio, asthma, and jalapeño induced chest burn.

    McDonald's big Mac with fries. The food was heavy in my stomach also had a coffee with it and I could feel it bouncing around in there as well

    Almost had a Mac attack haha.

    I get funny looks at the gym because my water bottle is a vodka bottle. Not like a normal vodka bottle, but the vodka came in a reusable water bottle... So, it kinda looks like I'm doing shots and it makes for some good entertainment for me :P No, the vodka wasn't worth it. Don't buy Kru. It's icky.

    I tend not to eat anything before going to the gym either, i tend to do more of a work out if i feel 'lighter' if that makes sense :p But i imagine the worst thing to eat would be something heavy and carb-loaded such as pasta.
