I've always been curious about the opinions I would get with posting this question. post PWO meal meaning the first good solid meal after your PWO shake.
In my case, my PWO shake is my 4th meal of the day. Then my post PWO meal is my 5th meal of the day, and then I have one last 6th meal just before bed.
I take in roughly 40g dex PWO with my protein, at about 6-7PM depending on when I get done working out. (yes I know this could be another 100pg thread in itself, but that's not what THIS thread is about.)
And then when I get home I like to have a solid meal for my 5th meal of the day. My problem comes into play with it being so late at night already when I get home. On one hand this meal is generally my largest meal of the day (along with breakfast) and it comes at around 9pm at night, with obviously no physical activity coming before bedtime.....unless I get lucky.
Generally I like this meal to be 2 chicken breasts followed by about 70-75g of carbs coming from brown rice/vegetables.
So now you see my dilemma, It's a good solid meal with plenty of carbs and protein to recover from my workout, but it comes so late at night that I'm afraid my body is just storing half of that as fat as I sit there watching tv for the night.
So would it be wise for me to ditch eating that big of a meal that late at night, but at the same time sacrifice on missing out on the post PWO meal to help my body recover from the training?
Thanks for any input you guys have.
