In Part I, JB provides an overview as well as an explanation of the Energy and Anabolic Phases. In Part II, JB follows on from this and explains both the Growth Phase and the cleverly named Rest of the Day Phase.

SO basically, after working out, you need 3 meals spaced out between 6-9 hours time. And if you workout late night, you can only get in one meal during growth phase, but you wont get enough for the rest hours of growth. That must explain my stagnet stage of 150lbs, I'll try working out in the afternoon and see how it goes. Thanks for the article, it was really good.

Theres probably a little more to it than that. I workout pretty late, and generally have a post workout meal and one before I hit bed... I take the advice about post workout consumption and the next meal, but I wouldn't worry so much about getting 3 in post workout.

If you have been stuck at 150, its more likely you are just simply not eating enough...
