    Is there a reason you dont want a lot of fat post workout or just not in general?

    It's basically what I have lying around, on occasion there will be some chicken leftover from dinner but not often. I know my diet isn't great but I basically eat everything I can get my hands on including a lot of fruit/vegtables.

    Post Workout Fat


    Little is known about the effects of fat in the "post-exercise" meal. Total fat intake is probably more important for a bodybuilder than just considering the post-workout meal.

    Essential fatty acids in sufficient quantities have the ability to alter physiology. Fatty acids such as omega-3s' and omega-6s', when consumed in differing ratios in a consistent and deliberate manner, can alter the composition of cell membranes which alters the production of prostaglandins in working muscles and thereby can modify everything from glucose transport to protein synthesis (Hayashi 1999). These effects are seen after at least 5 days of consuming of these fats in moderate to high doses. Eating them immediately after training and at no other time will most likely not have any dramatic effect.

    Some forms of fat may delay gastric emptying which theoretically could slow the rate at which nutrients become available to tissues. We can only speculate whether this would have any "long term" effect on gains. Most research indicates that glycogen replenishment is delayed but not reduced when gastric emptying is prolonged.

    There is some indication that cholesterol may be an important nutrient immediately after high intensity resistance exercise. Total cholesterol has been shown to be significantly lowered for at least 90 hours following a single bout of resistance exercise (Smith 1994). Serum cholesterol may be needed for incorporation into damaged cell membranes after resistance exercise. I'm not implying that you should eat a high cholesterol meal right after training. Taken together, research is still lacking where the optimal levels and composition of post-exercise fats are concerned.

    pre-workout nutrition is just as, or even more important in some circles, then post workout nutrition.
