I didn't think it would but to avoid the after work rush I started going at 3am before work and honestly I wouldn't want it any other way. The only downside is that the first real thing I eat is the PWO shake.. But concerning your last post, I'm no nutrition guru but I'm almost positive your diet is lacking in carbs. I see oatmeal, berries then salad six hours later. I'm not 100% sure but working 12s is rough and I would assume you need a bit more energy then that.

EDIT: Disregard.. Just saw your thing about snacking on broccolli. Nevermind me
Same here (military), so I work out at 6 am, first think I eat is the PWO shake before my lift actually..then eat real breakfast after my shower...sometimes on the ride to work..or else just at work
