    Is that too much fat for a post-workout item? ERR GRAMS

    Hey, I changed it to grams before any of you responded. Cut me some slack.

    250g = just under 9 ounces.

    Not that much actually.

    However, salmon contains a good amount of fat and although it is good fat, the fat creates dense calories. If you're not cutting and not throwing a shitload of carbs in with that salmon then 9oz is fine. Good fats and TONS of protein to boot!

    So what' the difference between a dense calorie and a normal calorie?

    I'm sure he meant the food was calorie dense and that eating a salmon fillet has more calories than eating a chicken breast at the same weight.

    It seems to be roughly

    355 calories
    16.5 g. fat
    0 carbs
    49 g. protein


    If that is too much fat for a post work-out meal, how much fat should I limit myself to after a workout? Also, would it be better to eat that before the workout?

    Avoid the fat mainly if you don't get a pre-workout meal/snack/shake. The goal of limiting fat (or favoring fast absorption stuff) is only valid if you're on an empty stomach. If not, you'll already be absorbing nutrients. I still wouldn't get deep fried peanut butter but if you get a protein source and a carb source without a specific fat source (ie : fats are only residual and come from the other two), it's fine.
