    Nutrition after fasted workout

    Hey guys....I have been lifting fasted in the morning for a couple months now and it seems to be working out for me. I am a little confused as to what to eat after my workout. I have been drinking a whey shake with oatmeal for the past month, but I want to make sure if this is helping me in any way. Any help would be much appreciated.

    That's perfect. Carbs and protein.

    I intermittent fast from 10pm to 2pm the next day and go to the gym around 1pm so I'm always fasted. Lately I've been having 1.5 scoops of whey, a banana, and a fun size snicker bar.

    Thanks 1quick1...I've been reading that some people drink a gatorade right after a workout...does it really matter if I consume a slow digesting carb vs. a fast digesting carb?

    Outside of the context of your overall daily dietary intake, one meal is largely irrelevant.
    Eat what you're in the mood for.

    That being said, if you are training fasted, it would make sense to get a decently balanced meal with a solid combination of protein/carbs/fat.

    That's an old school train of thought but you can go either way. But I honestly had 1/2 cup of rolled oats ground in a coffee grinder mixed with 1.5 scoops of whey post workout for at least 7-8 years.

    Personally I'd save the calories instead of wasting them on a protein shake, and simply cook a nice big breakfast after training.

    4-6 whole eggs.
    Couple slices of bacon.
    Toast w/ jelly.
    Wash it down with a nice big glass of whole milk.


    Way tastier than a protein shake, and just as effective.

    Thanks InItForFitness....there is soooo much info out there...I can see why people get fed up and quit their fitness goals. I'm starting to notice that a lot of it is trial and error and most people want results NOW.

    I would like to do the same, but I have less than an hour to get ready to go to work and get two kids ready for school..It's a time saver for me.

    There is, unfortunately the majority of the 'info' is ficticious and based on "studies" that are highly biased towards the outcome that would benefit those funding them (normally supplement companies).



    The real facts are that the difference between a protein shake w/ oats post-workout, or a nice big meal, is negligable in their individual context and will yield the same exact results assuming overall dietary intake is the same.


    My suggestion would be to test both and see which you prefer.

    Me, I'll always take real food over powders.

    Meal prep?
    The only real part that takes time is cooking the bacon, and that's onlyl 10-15 minutes..but you could always do it the night prior, or do a big weeks batch of it on a certain day and store it for the week.

    Then just whip up the eggs quick, reheat the bacon, throw toast down while the eggs cook.
    You can have the meal finished and consumed in under 15 minutes.

    Honestly, there really shouldn't be any required for breakfast, but in this aspect it could help.
    Just knocking out the cooking time of the bacon at least could make a big difference and just enough extra time in the morning to get yourself a quality meal instead of having to settle.

    I'd skip the shake and mix the whey into the oatmeal when it's done.
    Proats!

    Also don't forget a teaspoon or two of unsweetened cocoa powder, assuming it'll complement the flavor of your whey. And slice a banana on top of it, or whichever fruit complements your whey/cocoa/spices. Fruit is a quick and easy way to make oats less boring.
    Easy and tasty.

    I tried that one time, the whey didn't dissolve all the way...so it looked a tad nasty and didn't taste all that good. Another reason it probably didn't taste good was that it is a cookies n cream flavor, which i'm getting tired of and I still have 3/4 tub left

    This ^.

    Have a normal meal with sufficient protein (> 30 gram), carbs and fat.

    Nothing special about a whey shake post workout.
