I was wondering if it's better to eat food (for example a chicken or tuna salad) after working out or drinking a protein shake. Which one is best for the body if somebody is trying to lose fat and why?
I sometimes eat after my training and sometimes just drink a shake if I'm in a hurry.

Hey, you're embarrassing yourself, you geriatric ****!

I bloat from lots of whole food but don't from shakes as much. Rather than have a distended gut even when lean I opt for more shakes and easier digestion.Live Hard, Laugh Hard, Love Hard and Heal Fast!

If your preworkout meal is good in regards to containing protein+carbs+fats you can skip the post workout shake and just go home and eat a whole food meal.
If you want just have a protein shake post workout, take a shower then eat your next meal. Nothing to complicated.Athletic Edge Nutrition Lead Forum Representative

Banana + One Scoop Whey immediately post workout.
Then I eat a whole meal about an hour to an hour and a half later.

immediately after a workout i like to have a shake consisting of whey and either karbolyn from AAEFX or something high in sugars like a pop tart. i've been doing that for a few months now and an hour and half later i have a whole food meal. but i'd recommend a shake immediately after.NGA Natural bodybuilder
