How long do you wait between your PWO shake and your next meal?

Right now, I'm waiting about 90 minutes (my PWO shake is about 300 cals and my next meal is about 400 cals)

Is this about right?

0-90 minutes

I don't make a point of waiting - I knock back my shake at the gym, then eat when I get home - probably within an hour.

I've been under the impression you just basically want to get food in you, fast.

Bump!

I often have my shake while I wo, then eat a hour or so, depending on schedule and how hungry. Believe it or not, when I was younger I never had WO shake just at a big meal after I worked. I regret all that wasted training now. ;)

it certainly wasn't wasted

alot of the little particulars we observe don't amount to much difference in the long run

I lift from 7-8 pm, so when I get home, it's meal time.

i eat ASAP usually...sometimes other things won't let me eat a full meal until a good 2-3 hours after my PWO shake...but usually eat within an hour or so....
