Heres a newer article breaking down the findings of a study on various nutrient timing approaches sometimes taking into account age/experience etc..

http://www.jissn.com/content/10/1/5

Which approach has worked best for you in acheiving you specific goals?

(If you could provide your previous protacol as well as your gender and goal would be helpful)

Ive been doing I.F. (either TABATA Or resistance training) with a 16/8 eating window- working out fasted, and waiting 1-2 hours for P/W meal ...thinking of changing this up a bit and wanted to see what you've tried and what has worked best.

TIA~

I don't eat anything too significant at least 2 hours before I go to bed.

I think my main issue isnt so much Post workout but more ..whether or not to I.F. and w/o fasted. I think for me its not working well. I never did pick up any BCAA which probably wouldve helped.

@foreveryoung- yes i remember u sayin do COMPLETE opposite-LOL :) Dont mince words now (about Mark) tell us how you REALLY feel ..eheh. I heard about I.F. and prolonging your P.W.O foods long b4 i ever heard of Sisson or paleo though-so in this case hes not to blame. Sometimes wish i could unread/unlearn all the conflicting informations. @Stephen- :) i notice that too, after TABATA im borderline nauseous and totally dont want to eat immediately afterwards. On the other hand, sometimes after i do some slower intensity cardio i can hardly wait to have a protein shake or din din.

@ Tom_S: Yes. I was anorexic from 12-15 and part of 16. Probably started earlier than that, but that's when I was diagnosed and admitted to the hospital for the first time. Was in and out a total of 3 times before I learned how to recover right.

Interesting about the mitochondria I didn't think of that. I just feel better when I eat after a workout. Just like 150-200 calories. When I wait I feel like I'm trying to play catch up the rest of the day and then end up eating more food (which I somehow translate to reduced recovery efficiency). Also, yeah the knowledge dropped intermittently on paleohacks is way better than anything I've seen out of Sisson. I think he's a knave and projecting his orthorexia to at the cost of other peoples' health and relationship with food. If I had read him in the midst of my eating disorder I prolly...

@forever, I'm not all that familiar with sisson's recommendations, but I'd listen to you before I'd listen to him.. Lol.

Yea man, I call bullshit depending on the workout. Listen to your body, if you're hungry right after a workout, listen to your body and eat. When I've done HIIT hard I'll find I'm not even hungry for 45min-an hour at which point I'll be suddenly ravenous. I was under the impression that in that window you are burning shit like crazy, feeding it says, hey mitochondria, you don't really need to work that hard, here's some sugar for you. So if I were you Mary I'd listen to your body. If its hungry after a workout don't wait 2 hours because you think you're gonna get some extra benefit,

The sooner you eat, the more you take advantage of the non insulin dependent glucose uptake which occurs from sufficiently stressing your muscles. It blunts GH because it reduced cortisol. i just see more pros than cons, but I can see how it could be seen the other way as well. I also just abhor Mark Sisson, if you didn't know already.

No. But there's the post workout non insulin dependent glucose uptake.

Eating within 1 hour shows faster muscle recovery and stunted hgh release. Not to say either is right or wrong, but I haven't seen any convincing evidence of the pwo carb loading improving muscle growth.

Waiting 1-2 hours post workout before you eat? Didn't I tell you do the OPPOSITE of what epic tool/huckster/moron Mark Sisson does?

Eating some lean protein early in the morning for a descent breakfast. Big ass lunch and whatever for dinner, small, big or little works best for me.

Male, 25 years old, trying to drop some weight and maintain muscle mass. I'm on a modified LeanGains recomp and I like to carb bomb myself after workouts. I wish I was kidding. So far it's worked out great. Usually potatoes or rice and keeping it low fat on training days.

Edit: 16/8 daily fast with a window from 2-10PM. I workout 11:30-1:00 and eat my biggest meal at around 1:30. I try to get at least 60% of my calories in for the day here.
