    Yeah, I read that last week. It was pretty funny to see everyone on t-nation get into to tizzy about how it relates to Surge.

    tell us something we don't know

    cliffs: diet is more important than a post workout shake

    this is just retarded. Cortisol is catabolic, this is why we care.

    I don't see why it would matter. Think about the question you just asked, an owl is nocturnal - it comes out at ______

    See if you can figure out some 3rd grade vocabulary word

    *gasp* The hell you say! Low-carb Grow + Surge + Spike is the ONLY way to get big. Biotest told me so.

    Some of it is accurate, some of it is wrong, and a lot of it just doesn't matter either way. The human body was designed to digest food. Period. I always laugh when people get into pissing contests about whey isolate vs whey hydrolysate vs casein and timing various vitamins and minerals together. Just make sure that you're getting enough protein of reasonably high quality, enough vitamins and minerals, and enough total calories. Don't overthink it.

    You have to wake up at 3am to eat because your body fasts while you sleep :run:

    right now i break up my post-workout drink into two parts

    first part i drink right after training, which just carbs-- vitargo and cytomax, mixed with the second serving of creatine and l-glutamine-- which ends up being about 100g of carbs.

    then after i get home, i whip up just a scoop of ON with a cup of milk, 1/2 banana, and a tablespoon of Udo's Choice Oil. by the time i drink this, it's been roughly a half hour after the workout ... sometimes 45 min. then i'll have one or two more solid meals and a little snack before bed.

    and in case you guys are wondering, i am getting a little flabbier with this relatively clean bulking diet. :mamoru:

    How long before the workout should I eat and after? 1 hour spreads? Shakes with both meals?

    I drink my shake with aminos right before i train actually..I usually wait 30 minutes to have the shake after..sometimes i eat a solid meal instead if im starving then have the shake with fats(musclemilk) before bed instead.
