Is it also true that proteins elicit much higher DIT than carbohydrates?

Yup!

Wouldn't it then be more advisable to have a high protein, low carbohydrate meal upon waking, which would be followed by training? Would that have an effect on DIT?

Well, when you wake up, insulin sensitivity is already really high, so this would be a perfect time to have carbs. Plus, you optimally would want to have carbs in the morning and pre-workout to decrease catabolism, and for energy during your training session.

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
