The best way around it is to work hard at making sure the other meals are point on. Post workout nutrition is important but it isn't any more important than any other meal a day. It's the classic thing that you see with 15-18 year old guys. They work out, have a shake and some carbs then don't eat for another two hours until they have pizza and wonder why they don't grow.

I'll take someone not eating the proper macronutrients post workout if they will be as perfect as they can personally be for the rest of the day. It's a lesson that needs to be learned by everyone who steps foot into a gym. Don't beat yourself up if you don't eat right after you train, life gets in the way but don't be afraid to test the waters either.


OK enough psychology. What are the best formulas and methods for maximizing post workout nutrition? It really stays the same for both men and women. I generally recommend:

20-40 gram of whey protein 5 grams of L-Leucine 5 grams of BCAA

2 tbsp natural peanut butter.

Now it gets interesting when we look at fat loss versus muscle building.

For adding muscle, I recommend a carb source such as oatmeal or yams that are slow absorbing and therefore don't spike your blood sugar levels. We do not some sort of insulin spike post workout but not too much as it can lead to a double release of insulin.

For dropping body fat, I recommend 10-20 grams of glycine and 10-20 grams of glutamine. These amino acids are known for having a distressing effect on the body so that we can repair optimal and they will be likely turned to glucose to provide energy in the absences of carbs. This is another way to replenish used muscle glucose and recover without carbs.
