i might go bigger on the PWO shake...i usually go 48g pro and about 90-100g carbs...i've heard many things about 2:1 carb to protein ration PWO...

I would add some dextrose/oats to the shake, and move 7pm meal to 6pm.

I agree with brickt.

Sometimes I even push it probably more then is smart...I'll have the shake right after and then 1/2 an hour later have the dinner.

I guess each has their own body chem. but I feel after working out that I can eat non stop without becoming sick.

Guess just find whats good for you, but I agree, meal sooner then 2 hours after working out.

I usually do a shake (fast absorbing cuz its whey) and then an hour later have a real meal of solid food

i dont really like the 2:1 ratio though.. still seems weird to shove all that sugar into your system to me.. i'd rather do somehitng like 2 scoops whey with 1/4 cup malto and 1 tbsp dextrose something like 25 carbs, then eat a bowl of raison bran crunch or somehting like that with a decently high number (75ish i believe), carrots, whatever...

cuz solid food rocks :D


3 Tbsp supplement direct dextrose (58 cals, 0g fat, 0g pro, 45g carbs)

don't understand how that adds up to 58 cals...from my knowledge 45 carbs is 180 cals)

i like 2 scoops of oats and 1 scoop of dextrose. tastes decent and the oats help make the shake taste less 'sugary'

I think posting just your PWO nutrition is useless.

Regardless, I think it looks perfectly fine, but I'd be much more concerned with the rest of my diet rather than just 1 or 2 meals.

I've read to consume about 50-60 g of protein within 90 min of a workout.

I usually eat 4 to 5 boneless/skinless chicken breasts and some sort of good carb within 45 minutes of my workout.
