    Postworkout question


    This is what I'm currently doing. I'm just looking for some opinions/thoughts etc...to see if I should keep it up or maybe switch it up.

    6.00-7.00 workout
    Immediately postworkout I drink a scoop of whey protein isolate and some bcaa's.

    My drive to work is 35 minutes and when I get there I eat some eggs/egg whites and white rice.

    I'm trying to stick to whole foods so that's why I'm eating the white rice postworkout instead of a drink/supplement.

    I feel eating when I get to work (before I start) sets me up for the next 2.5 - 3 hours.

    So, what do you think?

    Thanks. I'll rep.

    Sounds good to me, but throw in some fruit in there as well with the eggs and rice.

    Suggested fruit?
    I do like bananas and oranges, but if you have something else in mind, throw it my way.

    I like to blend up Quaker Oatmeal into my morning shakes. It's packed with carbs and slows your digestion, which i believe leads to greater protein absorption.

    ewww dextrose... replace the dextrose with milk!

    Use whatever whey you usually drink post workout and mix it into some 1% milk!

    Move the 10g bcaa to right before the workout along with some water. Post workout mix 30g whey into like 16oz 1% milk. If you cant take the lactose (like me) buy the lactose free milk or down 2 lactase pills with the milk.

    Keep doing the egg and rice when you get to work, but the milk will def fill you up more than the whey and water your doing right now so you could probably get away with a little less rice. Just keep your macros in check with your diet and you're good!
