Usually im starving after a workout but today im not for some reason. im only asking this cause its right after working out, should i at least have a protein shake? then eat when im hungry. i just took a serving of muscle pharms bcaas and i use the aminos during my work out, but again im only asking cause its right after my workout and i know i need nutrients. thanks!

Does it fit into your Calores In vs Out? If so then eat or have a protein shake, etc.

Hunger isn't directly associated to Calorie intake. It's more nutrient based than anything. I generally plan my workouts to end right before a meal time and I have a protein shake afterwards.

Meal timing is irrelevant/ the same as nutrients, as long as you fit them in within the day. You can have them whenever you like bro.

No need to get hung up on pre/post working shakes etc.
