    My post workout shake has kind of become my during workout/post shake.

    As in i start drinking it when i start training, sip it all the way through, then finish whatever is left when im done.

    I usually then eat a meal about 45mins-1hr later

    Since I workout at home, I'll likely be eating my post workout meal as soon as I'm finished lifting when I resume bulking. It'll consist of cooked oatmeal, with whey and cottage cheese stirred in afterwards. I drink a shake during my workout, so really don't need to drink my post workout meal when I can easily eat it instead.

    1-2 hours. Depends on post-workout shake/meal contents.

    You should have a post workout shake immediately after, and between half an hour and an hour after you have finished training is whats called the window of opporunity, were your body needs the essential nutrients (ie, proteins and carbs) to return it to its normal state and feed the muscles. It is essential tht u eat between this period even if your not hungry, to get the most from your workout.

    No wonder you are starving after a 2 hour long shower

    1.5 hours afterwards is just as good.
