I would go with a banana. The protein and fat from the egg won't help/digest fast enough, and the sweet potato takes a while to digest as well. Have a banana 30 min before and you should be fine

Is it better to get all your calories in one meal so that your body isn't regularly producing insulin or does the body have trouble processing all that food at once? also, the meal in question would be low carb and high fat.

4 eggs and 6 strips of bacon @ 70 calories each = 700 calories. Throw in 100 calories of veggies sauteed in the bacon grease and you're all set.

Timing is EXTREMELY overrated. If you feel good working out fasted do it. Don't wanna eat right after your workout? Don't have to. Just be sure to hit your macro goals for the day at any point and you will be fine.

I generally eat a medium sized meal around noon, and a much larger meal around 7pm. sometimes I eat three meals and sometimes I just do dinner. Depends on my activity, and how hungry I am.
