Hello im on my way to reducing body fat.. ive lost fat already in the last 3 weeks.. but unfortunetaly im on a very tight budget now, and i have to have at least 1 meal which includes pasta...

I was hoping that my post workout meal could include white pasta + Whey Protein Shake ON.

What do you think? will i still lose fat or not?

Do you know that you'll get no special benefit from that protein shake?
Do you know that meal timing and frequency are largely irrelevant?
Do you know that it's daily total nutrition that matters and not one meal?
Do you know that specific food choices are not what determine the diet's contribution to bodyweight and composition?
Do you know that there are stickies that cover these issues?
Do you know that there's a search function on this website that allows you to discover 18,329 nearly identical threads to yours?

You can sub the white pasta for dextrose in your protein shake because they have the same insulin-spiking capabilities.

Total calorie intake > food choices (assuming macro/micro sufficiency)

Are you trying to ask a question?

FYI: what I posted is correct. Specific food choices are not relevant. It's total daily nutrition that is highly relevant.

Misinterpreted what you said earlier but that clarified it. Alrighty then.

Try substituting white pasta with whole wheat. It tastes great and has healthier properties such as higher fiber and protein.

I would expect something like this from Shred or Ghosting. You've been hanging around them too long. Lol!

Are you able to please explain how whole wheat pasta is different from durum semolina.

Once you undertake this exercise, you may have your outlook broadened.

Pasta is probably a farther stretch, but isn't that is the case between all purpose flour and whole-grain wheat flour? Well, at least that website believes so. Can't really comment if it's that accurate.

http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/5744/2

Either way, probably not a huge deal if you get a lot of other vegetables and fruits in your diet to make the difference up between the two if you can't stand whole wheat flour.

There is no reason why it should stop you losing fat. Certainly the only time I would consider eating white pasta is around workout time. A lot of guys seem to be taking the IIFYM thing too far. Yes carbs, fat and protein all provide energy but our bodies are not as straightforward as a duel-fuel cars. Carbs, protein and fat are used for different purposes in our bodies. I get the impression that some people believe there would be nothing wrong with eating all the protein for breakfast, all the fat for lunch and all the carbs for dinner. I will stick to concentrating carbs around workout times, and keeping protein consistent throughout the day.

At the end of the day, trial things like your white pasta and see how the body reacts. If you go two weeks and don't lose the weight you expected then you'll know better, and its only 2 weeks.

^^ Unnecessary restrictions you impose upon yourself.

Also, I have never seen anyone who successfully follows IIFYM encourage food separation as you imply with your post.

I get the impression you've not yet realized the difference between the following concepts:
1. energy level (preferential, may be influenced by nutrient timing)
2. body composition (macros, not influenced by timing)
3. overall health (micros, not influenced by timing)

As you can see, nutrient timing influences neither body composition nor overall health, although it may be a factor for energy levels.

Each to their own. If your energy level is not influenced by nutrient timing then good for you. Mine certainly is.

Please cite any respected poster that ever implied something that idiotic?

And please explain what foods someone could eat to accomplish that?

Now do you see why your post is moronic?

I think you misread my "some people" as "respected posters".

It could be done. Its hypothetical and I'm not going to waste my time. Let's not pretend like you would care anyway.


Now do you see why your post is moronic?

No. You can keep patting yourself on the back and squealing "BROSCIENCE" everytime someone dares to question your current way of thinking. I'm throwing my towel in with the guys with the PhDs, you can stick with your circlejerk of the month.

3030545, before you throw in the towel, if you have an open mind, you may appreciate reading an objective critique of the ISSN Position Stand on meal frequency that Alan Aragon wrote, which is posted on Martin Berkhan's website:
