    1). cuz I need a post workout meal anyways and I usually like to eat the most after I work out
    2). unless you have 2-3 hrs to digest that food, when u work out on a "full" stomach u run the risk of indigestion, nausea, etc etc because the blood that runs the stomach organs when the food is being digested are forced to the muscles instead resulting in an unhappy digestion process

    Hope this helped.

    I eat a meal an hour before, and usually drink a shake as soon as possible after my workout.

    Thats what I've always heard, so I eat dinner after.. but how long after your workout should you wait to eat dinner if you drink a post workout shake?

    my post-workout shake goes by the 4:1(carb : protein) ratio.. so its pretty filling after a workout.. at first I was chugging it directly after the workout, but remembered hearing somewhere that you can stretch out post-workout nutrition for up to an hour.. so I try to finish it as soon as comfortable possible now.. then usually wait for an hour after that to eat dinner..

    Should I keep doing what I'm doing or am I missing something?

    i think the common consensus is after, so you have enogh time to digest...unless you're eating 'dinner' at like 5/6 and work out around 8 but i don't see why you wouldn't just switch the two around in that case

    well for me, thats something i cant do. I'm living in the dorms on an airforce base and only option for food(due to car and bike bills) is the chow hall, which unfortunately doesn't have optimal business hours for my current work schedule.

    I generally eat dinner at 7ish and workout at around 9. I work out at home, and I get better workouts on this schedule.

    I usually eat dinner at 6:00-6:30, then I lift at 8:00.

    My dinner is the following:
    1.5 cups brown rice
    4oz chicken breast
    veggies

    Post workout is the following
    1 cup oats
    2 cups milk
    2 scoops whey

    I'm pretty damn full after my pwo meal, so I just wait 3 hours and have my bedtime meal. Haven't had any negative results by doing this.
