    Milk has caseine, a known carcinogen. Milk isn't for human consumption! Milk robs our bodies of calcium leached from our bones in order to nutrilize the acid it causes when entering our stomachs.

    The best thing to ingest before and after work outs is green smoothies or green juice! - 2/25/2012 6:26:19 AM

    I'm surprised to hear so many people say that they are hungry after a work out. For some reason I'm not. Just very thirsty. It actually hurts my stomach if I eat too soon after the work out. Interesting ideas to consider here though. thanks

  • Great article and thanks for blowing the myth of "more protein" out of the water! ☺ I love how you have details in the article too. Its info you can actually USE and learn from. Thanks! - 7/3/2010 4:47:17 PM
  • The article cleared up so much of what I'm lacking in my post workout, great article! - 6/25/2010 9:44:01 PM
  • Thank you so much Dean for sharing your knowlege, I really find your articles interesting, I learn a lot from them. This particular one's giving me some valuable insight cause my main problem is after workout meals where I always fail to control my eating, and it makes me feel like the effort I put into the work out is wasted. Now I have some guidelines to follow, hope it works! - 6/10/2010 6:56:03 AM

    I am confused, I am currently eating 900 to 1200 calories a day and exercising to burn off 400 to 500 calories a day. Should I be eating more calories after my workout or what? I exercise after work and before my dinner - 6/7/2010 8:44:23 PM
  • So, that's why I gained rather than maintain my weight last month. I think I eat more calories than I burned, last month very hungry after workout. Very thirsty, that one I can easily fix but very hungry, all food looks so evily temptation, haha. - 6/7/2010 8:06:39 PM
