Thanks, FITGIRL... I looked at my BFFM manual and he says pretty much the same thing that you do... since I will be eating dinner in a short time after my workout, that is what I will do...my dinner meal is protein based anyway, with fibrous greens, asparagus, etc... ~ Dee ~

Honestly, Jazzid...
If I were you, I'd skip the post workout shake and go directly to eating your main dinner meal at 6:00pm... I don't buy into the whole idea about having to drinking a "protein shake post workout" to stimulate muscle repair! A solid balanced meal afterwards should do the trick as well!!!

I think that would be fine. Drink your combo drink immediately after your workout and see how it goes. Keep me posted!

I have a question.. I work out between 4 - 5 pm, if I drink a protein/combo drink after I workout, can I eat by 7:00... I want to eat before 8:00pm because I go to bed by 10:00 - 10:30...

As as rule, is there a certain amount of time after drinking a protein supplement and a main meal?

~ Dee ~

PS: Ideally, I would really like to eat by 6:00 or 6:30...

Here is some info to help you plan your weekly menu:


Meal Breakdown

To maximize food absorption and favor muscle gain over fat gain (or to preserve muscle mass while dieting) you should ingest 6-7 meals per day. Three of those meals should contain carbs and proteins (breakfast, immediate post-workout drink, and meal 60-90 minutes after your workout). The remaining 3-4 meals should be made up of protein, good fats, and green veggies.

The ideal time to train is around 10:00am. This gives us the following eating schedule:

Meal 1 (upon waking up): Carbs + protein meal
Meal 2 (post-workout, around 11:00): Carbs + protein recovery drink (Surge)
Meal 3 (12:30): Carbs + protein meal
Meal 4 (15:30): Protein, fat, and green veggies
Meal 5 (18:00): Protein, fat, and green veggies
Meal 6 (21:00): Protein, fat, and green veggies

Obviously, not everybody can train at this time. For those who have to train in the evening (around 5:00 or 6:00pm), the following schedule is appropriate:

Meal 1 (upon waking up): Carbs + protein meal
Meal 2 (10:00) Carbs, protein, and green veggies
Meal 3 (12:30): Protein, fat, and green veggies
Meal 4 (15:30): Protein, fat, and green veggies
Meal 5 (Post-workout, around 18:00): Protein and carb drink
Meal 6 (21:00): Carbs + protein meal

Finally, those who have to train in the morning (around 8:00am) should use the following schedule:

Meal 1 (upon waking up): Carbs + protein meal drink
Meal 2 (post-workout, around 9:00): Carbs + protein recovery drink (Surge)
Meal 3 (12:30): Carbs + protein meal
Meal 4 (15:30): Protein, fat, and green veggies
Meal 5 (18:00): Protein, fat, and green veggies
Meal 6 (21:00): Protein, fat, and green veggies

* Note that in this last situation we use a carb and protein drink in the morning. This is because we need to get the nutrients absorbed as fast as possible so that digestion won't interfere with workout intensity.
