    get protein whenever you can man. don't worry so much on the timing, worry more about the amount you are taking in each day.

    only thing ive heard is you dont want to have a lot of food in your stomach 45mins before working out bc then the blood is going to your stomach and not to your muscles.

    but if im on empty i have a 1/2 shake 1hr before the gym
