I've always found that the sooner I get some good, high quality protein in me after working out, the less sore my muscles are, and the less time they're sore for.

protein after. carbs for breakfast or your latest meal the day before. protein rebuilds the micro tears in your muscle tissue. the repitition of the process is what causes muscle growth. carbs too close to workout time will make you sluggish and tired.

change 'you' to 'me' and cut out 'will'.




I recommend eating slow, low gi, carbs at least 30min-120min before work out(weights). along with some solid protein and maybe some EFAs (a meal)

look chief, you're free to give your advice like anyone else. but until you get your nutritional certification, stuff your comments on my advice please.

and eating carbs 30min-120min before a workout wont help your workout as they wont be digested in that timeframe.
bump it up to 3-3.5 hours and you're better off.

do you work out on an empty stomach? if so, I recommend you having a similar meal to the one you are currently having after the workout, 1-2 hours before you start working out.
i just noticed, i missed the word "after" my workout from my original post in this thread.
im not an idiot with regards to eating halfway through a workout, that would be a stupid thing to do wouldnt it?
normally ill have rice/chicken/veg etc (my main meal of the day) around 4pm, and my classes/weights i have 6-9pm everyday so its always 2-3 hours after eating.
normally after ill have some muscle milk and then go to bed apart from on a monday, i have to do my monday weights first thing instead of jogging

stupid thing to do for an average person doing a typical workout, yea.

if you want advice/constructive criticism on that bit on info you posted, add goals+stats+whole diet(with timings and portion sizes)+routine.

Both are essential. I take ON Whey with 3 scoops of Cytocarb 2 (complex carbs) mixed in. It's very cheap
