Hi eveyone! I was just trying to figure something up, but I never figured it out. Heres my question:

Lets say I burned 1100 to 1200 cals on a training day ( I ran for 12 miles). I ran at night. After I ran, I did not eat nor drink gatorade or any other sport drink, just water. I felt asleep after taking a shower. Does that means those calories I burned during the night can be consumed next day mix with my calorie intake a day? Thanks.

hmmm, im sorta confused what you mean, but, i'll give it a shot.

I think your talking about having a calorie deficit because of the fasting you are doing. I think yea, you'll lose some weight, but, I still don't fully understand your question...

He means, can he eat more the next day because he didn't eat as much the day before.

oh, well, cals dont EXACTLY work like that. but yeah, your body will prolly be able to use some more the next day.

You want to try and think of it more as a same day thing, not a next day thing IMO. If you're going to do 500 cals of cardio, you can eat some more food. But in my experience if I do a bunch of cardio one day and eat more the next it just stalls my weight loss.

Yes I meant if I can eat more. I asked this question cuz I always train at night 7 pm till 9 or 10 pm. So I don't have time to eat after training. I just go directly to bed. I am eating 2000 cals a day, and I know it is too low compared with all the running I do. I burned lots of cals. But it is just the fact that I work and study so there is limited time to eat. And sometimes I just feel full ( prolly the veggies- broccolli makes me feel full). I can't really eat much more than I do. the weird thing is that on saturdays and sunday I get so hungry and that is when I eat a lottttttttttt. It is weird. But now I will just eat right after workout, don't you think? or I will just drink some gatorade or eat some fruits with a regular oatmeal ( at night), wut do you think should I eat after workout or should I eat all my cals before I run? thanks.

Why don't you have time to down a protein shake after you train?

I am not into protein shakes. Never have drank them. Do you think a protein shake after workout would be a good idea? I ma try it and see wut happens cuz I always wake up hungryyyyyyyy.

Ummm...yah, I'd say it's a great idea. If you don't have time for food for some reason, then down a protein/carb shake after you work out.

I don't have time for food cuz I like to cook my food and after practice I just want to go to bed. My training is pretty strong I would say so yeha when i get home first thing I do is take a shower and go to sleep. But I ma start drinking a pro/carb shake. Thanks.

Cook your food earlier in the day/night before/beginning of the week. In any event, just down a protein/carb shake. I'd say it's pretty important to get carbs and protein in after a workout.

I did not think about that bro. I will start cooking my food in the beginning of the weak ( don't think I ma a great cooker, I am barely learning but I am getting there). After training or a soccer game, how long should I wait to eat? I usually drink 24 oz of water after training and a game, and sometimes I just drink a gatorade ( right after training). I am just curious if I should wait a amount of time to consume liquids or food. Thanks.

You should consume food as soon as possible afterwards, if not before/during. The best approach after the soccer game would be one or two gatorades, then keep drinking water. After training some protein and a gatorade would be beneficial.

is 24 oz of water before and after a game or practice fine? That is wut I usually drink at a game or at training. During the day I drink a gallon and a half.

Water does not replace food.

I never say water would replace food. Wut I meant was if 24 oz of water before and after a game (20-30 minutes before and after) would be okay to recover the fluids lost during a game. And I have another ques. :

What would be a good meal to eat after practice ( at night: 10:00 pm)?

Of course water is fine. Ummm....whatever you feel like eating to meet your caloric goals for the day. If you plan on sleeping, a good slow digesting protein like casein (i.e. cottage cheese) or something like chicken.
