I usually try to eat 5 small meals a day
but my third meal is usually at 1pm and then nothing until about 5:30pm at which i load up on carbs, because i'm on my way to the gym...and i'm starving!!
was wondering what everyone recommends and eats at this time...thanks

Dex/protein shake. I normally do about 40g worth of dex with a scoop of nitrean. Same after the gym. Oats work well too if you can eat them earlier.

Dex is a carb. It is the most simple and fastest carb and should hit the blood stream quicker then anything else.
