I always have a shake before and after my workout. I always take bcaa's with it. I have read that shakes are good about an hour before you work out cause it saturates or does something for them that is good. After my workout I have a shake, half straight protein and half weight gainer shake. I usually have a meal within about 45 minutes of the shake. Other than that mine is about the same. I usually have 4 or 5 shakes a day and 3 meals with solid food. That is 3 real meals not just snacking cause I eat yogurt and granola bars and other stuff like that throughout the day.

I like a small solid, high protien food meal about an hour before the workout. High protien because some carbs can make you sluggish/sleepy and a solid food meal because it will digest slower and provide a steady stream of nutrients through the workout. After the workout, I like a meal replacement because it will digest quicker and you will recieve the nutrients at a faster rate. Then about 1 1/2-2 hours later, another solid food meal.

I like something that is going to fill me up about an hour before. I'll just have a light dinner with some meat and potatos then maybe some yogurt right before. Right after the workout I'll have a protein shake and a bowl of fruit for some carbs.

About 1-1 1/2 hrs before I workout I consume a food meal(mainly protien).
During my workout I consume an energy drink and on leg and back days I'll also consume 20-30g protien shake to get extra for those days.
Post workout shake(within 15 mins. of finishing my workout) with 40g protien and 51 grams simple sugars and 5g glutimine.
@1-1 1/4 hrs. later I'll consume another meal high protien with some complex carbs.

I do not eat for about 1 to 2 hours before a workout or else it's all coming out I *may" have a shake about an hour before workout... that'll stay down (except on leg day).
I do have a shake after workout in the lockers while changing, and have tuna or chicken within 30-60 minutes.

You know for some reason when I have oatmeal before a leg workout my stomach seems more settled down and less prone for vomitting? maybe im just a freak... hehe

I dont have a set schedule like u stated although i go by getting 55 grams of quality protien in my body at least every 1 1/2 to 2 hrs... Usually i go shake, meal, shake meal, throughout the day... But basically u want to grow u got to fuel the machine....

before and after a workout i have a fruit salad, 2 raw eggs (whole) and a protein shake (30-40grams) thats about it.
Most of my diet otherwise is quality protein, but only about 100g a day in total, most of my diet is also fruit, have been doing this for a while and it seems to work well (i'm 260lb too)

I eat a solid food meal about 1-1.5 hours before my training. About 15-20n minutes before, I "load up" with a high protein, low carb shake. Then afterward, I have a high protein and simple carb shake. I then wait an hour before eating a very high protein solid food dinner. It works for me.

I was always under the impression to STAY AWAY from solid meals before a workout since the digestive system needs more blood in the blood stream to help digest the food you just ate. Thus, you wont get as good a pump as you would normally.
Something small and wont bog you down like an orange or some pineapple. Quick natural energy before your workout and digests easily.
Just my opinion
