I've been contemplating eating bread for its carbs after my workout, this would be in addition to my protein shake. Is this a good idea or will the bread just soak up the protein shake in my stomach and they both become ineffective?
I only have white bread at the moment, would wheat be better? Thanks!

1. If bread soaks anything up, it doesnt mean its ineffective, it still needs to be digested, bread shake and all....really this is not complicated stuff.
2. Eat what ever you want before/after your workout, it makes no difference as long as you get your daily calories and macros in.Eat the damn yolk.

Pretty tough to make a big ol' sammich without any bread, OP.No brain, no gain.
You can't out-train bad nutrition.
