    Lets say I finish my gym routine at 4pm. The best time to drink a protein shake would be directly after correct? But what if I dont drink it until like 11pm am i missing out on its full potential and some gains?

    just eat protein + carbs within about 20 minutes of your work out and you'll be fine. eat again about an hour after though.

    I just always thought whey is much better than eating chicken because the protein is digested faster. I just cant handle a bland choclate shake when im dehydrated and beat from the gym. I sound like a pussy that needs to man up.

    it doesn't fucking matter that much...


    chicken/rice/brocolli/etc after lifting is just as good as whey...it might make a 1-2% diff in the long run but not enough to worry about...

    +1. Does it make a difference? Yes.

    Will you be able to tell? No, it's minuscule.

    People used to get strong before protein shakes.

    GTLifter, I thought you knew your shit. You act like it. Wow. :rofl:

    Pick up any body building magazine or read it anywhere... TIMING IS EVERYTHING.



    Drink your protein shake immediately after your workout. Does it matter?! Yes. 30-45 minutes after, eat your chicken and rice.

    Wow. I'm really going to have to pull some direct quotes.

    Taken from Flex Magazine, issue May 2008.

    Article: The Ultimate Nutrition Q&A

    17. What's the best postworkout meal?
    Immediately after works, you need 40 g of fast digesting protein (like whey) and fast digesting carbs (Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler's formula is .65 g of carbs per pound of bodyweight) in the post training meal. This will rapidly provide amino acids to your muscles for recovery and growth.

    18. Should I just to whey protein after works?
    This fast-digesting protein is critical after work outs for stimulating recovery and growth. (I'm not typing the rest, enough said)

    19. What should my first major meal after training be?
    An hour after your fast digesting postworkout meal, you need to down a second postworkout meal of slower digesting whole food selections.


    I rest my case.

    I almost hesitated to prove GTLifter wrong as he's been posting on F&N longer and going to have his buddies back him up, but it's pretty fucking shitty to pass around wrong information.
