So currently here is my schedule with some macros:

Breakfast (~725 cals, 82gC, 54gP, 21gF)
snack (~210cals, 26gC, 13gP, 7gF)
lunch
snack
dinner
workout
shake ~30 minutes after workout (~290cals, 27gC, 41gP, 2gF)

If I change to a morning workout (after breakfast) should I move the shake with it or leave things as they are? I think I need to move the shake but its a pain doing shakes at work (I use a company gym). Let me know either way even if it isn't what I want to hear. PJ

Well your gonna want something for postworkout but I'm sure it will really make a minimal impact when you drink your shake.

Something could be the snack, its just slower carbs and not as much protien. Maybe I'll try the shake and if it's too much hassle I'll just use the snack.

yeah maybe a shake would do it, it will work wonders if you can be bothered with it :) but yeah as long as you drink the shake at some point, i supose its fine. what ever you can fit in best man

Good to get at least one more opinion, Thanks. I tried the shake over the weekend and I think it'll work although it doesn't mix nearly as well shaken vs. blended.
