    Diva Whey Protein Shake (Post Workout)

    Hi,

    I am about to start a three month gym program to strengthen my core muscles and lower back following a hernia repair.

    I have Evolve Diva Whey for Women and Evolve L-Glutamine.

    I will be having a shake post-workout.

    Do you recommend having it with 200ml water or 200ml low fat skim milk?

    Also what would be a good snack to have with the shake?

    I will be having a small bowl of cereal about an hour before my gym session.

    Thanks in advance!

    Its not a bad idea to center your carb intake around breakfast and your workout, so I'd recommend having a carb source with that post workout shake. Milk will give you some carbs, as well as quality protein, so go with the milk.

    Depending on how many carbs you're allowing yourself for the day, I'd add in another portion of cereal, or another carb source. You can go the route of powdered carbs (waxy maize, dextrose, maltodextrin), or just use whole food as well (bread, rice, potato, fruit).

    Good luck with your strengthening! I've taken many girls who have had C-sections from no ab strength to plenty of ab strength. A hernia will be similar. Let me know if you need any training suggestions. You can PM me about that.

    The preworkout could actually use a primary protein source. I actually prefer that every meal include a primary protein source. Cereal doesn't satisfy that category.

    Since we're talking preworkout here, I'd go with something lighter, like a scoop of your whey, egg whites, or non-fatty fish (tuna, pollock, etc).
