2 scoops whey ( 70 G Protein), 2 Large Bananas + 3 pizza slices.

1200 calories- 80 G Protein, 150 G Carbs.

Good?

Yeah .... ditch the pizza replace it with something else. No matter what your goals are I think the pizza should be replaced with a better carb and/or protein source.

Unless it fits in your macros and it is made by you with real ingredients then ENJOY.

Question too subjective -IMO.

Have to put your PWO meal in context with the rest of your diet, your pre-workout nutrition, your targeted calorie/macro goals, and your training.

ya i just started allpros beginner routine and i was completely exhausted but im going to cut out the pizza after today, but what do you think about the approx 1:1 ratio of protein to carbs for a general pwo meal?

It doesn't matter. Daily nutrition is what matters; not one meal.

In terms of that daily nutrition, aim for:
Protein: 1.0 to 1.5 grams per pound of lean body mass (or about 1 gram per pound of bodyweight).
Fat: 0.45 to 1.0 grams per pound of bodyweight.
The remainder of your calories can come from your preferred mix of carbs and additional protein and fat.

On a bulk, consume 10% to 20% above your maintenance intake. To learn how to estimate maintenance, please see: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=121703981

Lastly, meal timing and frequency are largely irrelevant.

Many have fallen for the hype of the supplement industry...

It really is all nonsense, but perhaps for folks who's daily nutrition is inadequate and/or those engaging in multiple intraday bouts of exhaustive exercise.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with pizza. I would ditch the 2 scoops of whey and eat real food. Also, there is absolutely no need for the "insulin spike" carbs post-wo. No need to slam a shake immediately after your last rep either. Just go home and eat an enjoyable meal. The only thing thats important is that all your daily macros are met (see stickies).
