    Is it ok to NOT eat after a workout?

    -I eat breakfeast at 8am.
    -Go to work.
    -Come home for lunch at 11:30 and lift.
    - I then have a protein shake w/ water. (nothing but protein, 0 carbs 1gr of fat).

    I dont eat lunch til an hour or two later. Is this ok? I'm not really hungry after lifting.
    Thanks

    Bad idea, very bad, you need carbs after your workout.....if you have to, force yourself.....and have a meal an hour after your workout that includes a good amount of complex carbs and a good protein source


    HOWEVER, if you want to waste all your hard earned muscle, then by all means don't eat...

    when you don't don't eat after lifting or even go more than a 3-4 hours, it can force your body into catabolic state causing your body to use up it's own muscle for energy. You always want to make sure that you have enough carbohydrates in you to keep your body satisfied. If you don't eat after you workout then your gaining the maximum potential from your lifts.

    You should have a preworkout meal, somewhere at 10:30 or so....like half a cup of oatmeal (dry) and a scoop of whey, or a can of tuna on whole wheat..
