If there is no steak/chicken around I usually take a protein shake post workout, provides around 32grams of protein from the powder alone that + the protein from the milk.

IDS Smart Gainer Protein Shake and 1 piece of fruit. All before your body temp drops. Training without Proper Nutrition is like washing dishes without soap.

Do you have any suggestion for "little" postworkout meal. I don't have have access to chicken, fish or something all day. And i don't want to eat/drink these protein shakes, because i want to live healthy and i think eating synthetic protein is wrong.

What are with nuts and seeds? I think 100 gr peanats have 28gr protein. But also a lot of calories. ^^

Or do you know other snacks, which I could use for a post workout meal?

btw: yesterday i had fish at lunch (1pm), then i went to training, ate a chicken breast after training (4pm) and another chicken breast at lunch (6pm). i hope thats enought protein for this day ^^

personally i have a glass of water with 2 tablespoons of glucose in it, then straight after i have 2 liters of full fat milk. there are studies that show that full fat milk is great post workout. http://stronglifts.com/milk-post-workout-build-muscle-gains/

I used to do the water and sugar thing. Now i do chocolate milk, which has actual studies to back it up. That website uses a study that does not support its claims (the study uses low fat milk). I guess bc you take the sugar water first it is fine (bc directly after the workout all of the fat would slow down the absorption), but if u take chocolate milk directly after a workout its kind of like crack for your muscles. Perfect balance, fast release sugars... There is a plethora of studies showing just how great it is.

A banana and protein powder with Dextrose. 30g protein, 60g carbs which is split aprox 3-1 glucose to fructose.

Its not just about what you have after. You have to think of what you have before and after.

You might as well get naked and run in the hill and pick up some rocks and eat sheep if u want be naturally...

yes you're right. i thougth this is some synthetic crap. i wanted to say that in todays nutrition there are lots of other things. for example i read an article last week saying there are female hormones in chinese milk.

I think this isn't possible in europe but we have a lot of fertilizer in our vegetable and if i have to eat that s**t, i should avoid other "unnatural" things in nutriton. i hope you understand what i mean Wink

Usually before I have something like whole grain cereal or peanut butter honey sandwich depending on what time of day

afterwards either yogurt or some whey if I can afford it, with milk or rice milk (I don't like to drink too much milk but rice milk is much weaker in terms of calories and protein) + a apple or banana

I used to have whey all the time and didn't like not having it, but now that money has made me unable to have it all the time I haven't noticed any differences from getting protein from other sources. I also make a huge pot of mung or adzuki beans with rice and vegetables and feel like a champ after eating it.

What helps when I don't have whey is looking at ancient greek and roman statues of athletes and realizing those beasts didn't have whey either

Hippocrates promoted whey consumption for its health benefits though I'm not sure if athletes of his time followed that advice.

I usually a have a bunch of Almonds or Walnuts. They 're healthy and have protein but I'm worried about the fats, anyone have some good advice on this?

Are nuts a good post workout snack? (Please no stupid childish jokes)


Or else a tin of tuna.

As for drinking, Milk, sometimes full sometimes skimmed depends what there is.

Wow - interesting.

I used to take whey too (still have some in the cupboard actually) but now I don't bother any more. Not noticed any difference in recovery and I'm definitely just as strong (well, stronger as I stopped taking it months ago).

I normally just eat what I normally eat after training - 70% of cals from fat, 15% from protein and 15% from carbs, or more or less that amount. Sometimes have more carbs if it was an intense session.

Hahah! I'm 33 - no childish jokes from me. Although I am partial to salty nuts.

Sorry Smile

They're ok after workout, but if you follow a normal diet then your muscles need more carbs to replenish glycogen. Nuts and a banana would be ok, but I'd say tune and a banana (or other carbs - sweet potato or whatever) would be best due to the higher protein content.

It was 5 of these badboys.



Total it was 10 slices of sprouted grain bread.

600g organic chicken

300g tomatos

300g iceberg lettuce

100g alfalfa sprouts

600g pumpkin on the side

1 large mango

Totalled about 2300 calories... For one meal. And still remaining shredded as hell haha. I love IF.

Recently Ive been starting to implement more grains into my diet. I used to never eat them. But now usually once a week after a big body part has been trained.
