I thought I have read here that if you have a preworkout shake, that you can eat regular food post-workout (not a shake). Is that true? Can it be beef or does it need to be like chicken and rice (super lean meat with carbs)? Thanks :thumbup:

If you go to the wbb home page, and look under one of the round table discussions, blood&Iron actually talks about this. Essentially, if one were to have only one shake, a pre-workout shake would be better than post. At least if my memory serves me correct.

Post-workout, I would try to eat mostly carbs and protein, minimal fat. But to be quite honest, I doubt you will see any difference if you were to eat the beef, so long as you meet you daily nutritional goals.

Agreed. Post workout I would try to keep fat intake to a mimimum. But apart from that its not going to make a hell of a difference.

Dude dextrose is the anwser for a post workout shake. Banana's and stuff like that will refill liver glycogen, and have little effect on your muscle glycogen.

You can do just fine eating oats (or other low GI carbs) post-workout, even without a pre-workout shake.

in the big scheme of things I do not think it makes that big of a difference... as long as your nutritional requirements are met you should have no problem in the muscle building department... just take aka for example.
