    Fast-acting carbs like dextrose post-workout is the best.

    as soon as finish get some extremely simple carbs in the form of liquid like dextrose or lucozade to spike you insulin (i even here cutler has a glass of coke or something like that!) then a shake (ideally in this liquid will get into your system quicker!) in water if you cant handle mixed in with your simple carbs. and then hour later make sure you get all your required carbs, protein and fats in a meal and lots of veggies

    :withstupi ~0.5g/lb bodyweight (bw), and add some whey or protein mix ~0.25g/lb bw.
    Move heavy weight, eat, sleep, repeat.

    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins

    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Right after you're done working out:
    Whey Protein + water and an insulin spiker (dextrose, meltodextrin)

    Post work out meal:
    Egg Whites + Grits (P+C) (add a slice of cheese like Ronnie Coleman for taste)
    An antioxidant, to stop free-radicals from damaging your muscles (green tea)

    type in "Post workout" in the search man. No need to open a new thread about this topic, you will find tonnes of info.

Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
