I believe the author, and it was substantiated by another site, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around this info as it is contrary to the brainwashing of 50 years. Hmmmm....

Very good article as I have been wondering about this. Kind of good to know this is a time that the simple carbs might be okay to eat. Fruit is a simple carb, I think, so fruit with some protein might be good. I often grab half a peanut butter sandwich and a glass of milk. I'll need to consider the chocolate milk idea. Interestingly enough, I've heard Allied Milk Producers ads touting chocolate milk as a workout recovery drink. Very informative article.

I always enjoy the articles Coach Dean writes. He explains things in a way I can understand and supplies a lot of information. It iwas interesting to me to see that I have been doing well in my post workout snacks. Thank you Coach Dean!

This is GREAT!!! And very timely. I just posted this question and have been talking to several people about this very topic. I work out on my lunch and eat right after. My concern was that I was not maximizing the benefit of the workout. After reading this and all the posts to my question it's great to know I'm doing what I should be doing.

Quick side note: I find I make better food choices after I work out. Instead of a high fat low nutrient lunch I tend to lean towards the whole foods, whole grains and greens.

Thanks for the article..it's in my favorites

Totally agree. As an athlete, I'm always remind myself that post workout nutrition is just as important as any other training aspect.

Great article Dean. Protein bars work good because they have a good protein/carbohydrate/fat ratio. But I also know there are cheaper and equally effective foods.

I always eat a banana after my workout - buy them from the fruit vendor on the corner I pass from the gym to my office. I have it with my second (and last) cup of coffee for the day. I think I am going to add a handful of nuts to the routine.

great article, I always feel very hungry after workouts and need to concentrate more on eating only what's necessary without over doing it.
