Are simple carbs after a workout necessary? Would it be very beneficial to consume a lot of simple carbs with a little of protein and creatine then have a solid meal about an hour later? Or is taking my creatine in water and eating a solid meal after my workout good enough?
Can someone just explain to me the pros and the cons and the whole idea about spiking insulin to shuttle nutrients to where they are needed. I just wonder if I should be consuming simple carbs with my protein and creatine or taking my creatine in water and eating my meal.
Any feedback is appreciated
