    Best post workout meal in your opinion?


    Hello everybody.I was thinking what can be the best meal for post workout and i want to hear your opinion and youe explanation too.I am drinking 400 ml 1.5% fat milk with 1.5 scoup protein.And after 40 mins to 1 hour i am eating beef 120g with rice.I have heard that milk isnt good imidiately after work out but i didnt see any bad effect in my body.Also a psychics teacher who was a weigh lifter told me that is so good to drink milk after.

    Milk has a fantastic ratio of carbs to protein. Double up on the milk and drop the flavored, powderized milk. Like wheat, milk is only bad if you can't tolerate it but get's demonized for the entire population.

    What did you hear about milk specifically? The only real argument I can think of is the fat content slowing down absorption rates compared to isolated whey protein but if you are keeping a steady stream of aminos flowing through you anyways, this won't matter and technically a post workout shake or double down glass of milk is just another meal to be worked in to your schedule.

    Milk is fine. There is nothing inherently wrong with it. What your doing now sounds fine.

    1 scoop dextrose
    2 teaspoons of creatine

    Chicken and beef are both whole, animal protein. Various proteins do contain varying levels of certain amino acids but choosing one for the other would have a negligable effect on your physique in this case. You may technically get more of an important amino out of beef or chicken but in a mirror 6 months down the road you wouldn't see much difference.

    That said, the iron, b-vitamins, creatine and cholesterol in beef can provide added benefits to better oxygenated blood for work out capacity, energy, cell volumization and the substrate for testosterone production over and above chicken.

    Normally I eat 2 cups of 2% cottage cheese and mix it with sugar free jello mix, and if Im nearing the end of my bulk when my calories are up in the 4000-4500 range, Ill throw in a couple of poptarts with it because I love those things! Today is a cheat day after back and Im eat a pizza hut 10 dollar dinner box and a couple of scoops of whey for my post workout meal. Yum.

    Oh I'm sorry I guess I should have explained that better. The whole wheat spaghetti I get from Costco is 8 g of pro per serving, with 9 servings per package, I have 5 servings which I'm pretty sure is somewhere around ten ounces, netting 40 g.

    Favorite post WO meals:

    Chipotle Chicken Tacos with an orange I brought myself.

    Panda Express 3 entree (firecracker chicken, string bean chicken, black pepper chicken) with Veg side with a banana.

    6 eggs and 2 slices of real cheese and an apple.


    If I feel flat or was a little low on energy at the gym I supplement with a handful of sweetarts, gummy bears or hot tamales.


    Sorry to get so detailed, but I'm passionate about my diet regimen.
