    Eating baked potatoes after workout

    i am trying to gain muscle mass but stay lean and i have recently been eating potatoes after a workout about an hour after i have had protein shake. The shake has about 50g of carbs in anyway, but an hour later i have potatoes and chicken and since ive been doing this i have noticed that i have gained a little bit of fat around my stomach. Is this because of the amount of carbs im taking in after my workout and should i eat potatoes before my workout and not after? i try to eat brown rice before with chicken or sometimes just brown rice on its own which is enough.

    Eat the potatoe before the workout, You will need the carbs for energy during your workout. Eat another piece of chicken an hour after your workout.

    sweet potatoes are better for you, and taste better imo. Put teriyaki sauce on them, so good

    preferably just have the chicken with a little bit of rice(brown rice) You wont need the extra carbs after your workout. The rice should suffice with a decent amount of carbs post workout. so drink ur protein shake within 30min after working out. then 30 min later your small meal.
