Dairy consumption post- workout.....

  1. Dairy consumption post- workout.....


    Currently on a cutting/strength maintenance cycle- 45 min cardio a day, maximal strength training 3x/wk..Diet consists of 6 small meals on a low- carb, high protein plan..

    Question, to anyone who has the essential scientifical knowledge and is not getting their information off of others' dietary routine: Since dairy slows down digestion/glucogenesis, and it is best to feed the muscle ASAP post-wrkout, would milk consumption have any detrimental/counteractive effects on my overall goals? Would it slow down the cutting result which I am aiming for?


  2. I suggest you look at the link up top for informational threads. The "rush" of nutrients that you speak of PWO isn't necessary.

  3. Die Trying, thanks for your quick response...
    I thought it was best to consume a easily digestible foods at least an hour after a workout, when your body is still revved up and it is more effectively absorbed.. And that immediate PWO feeds prevent catabolic effects.
    Anyone?
    (am i totally off here? lol)

    I am not sure what you are basing the above statement on. If you are consuming lowfat or nonfat dairy products there s/b negligible effects on digestion and no effect on glucogenesis. Lactose is is quickly broken down into glucose & galactose in the intestines (brush border enzymes). In fact diabetics are routinely instructed to to use nonfat/lowfat milk for low BG due to it's quick effects in elevating BG.
