    how to eat

    i was wondering

    what time of the day do i need to eat my complex carbs, and simple carbs?

    pre work out, or post work out?

    can you give me some examples of complex & simple carbs?

    should it be - complex carbs preworkout, simple carbs post work out?

    thanks

    complex def. @ breakfast and PPWO and other times (someone else please advise). As for simple, immediately post work out, such as dextrose.
    Complex-oats

    The context of your situation is needed before answers to these questions can be provided.

    heigh: 6ft
    weight: 225lbs
    not sure of body fat % but i estimate somewhere in the 20's
    have a 36 inch waist but i think if i got close to 0% bf it would be 34
    I have a LOT of water weight though, that im sure of... theres some flab but its mostly water. I recently started drinking more water (gallon/day) and doing 15min of cycling, 7 days/week
    I also lift weights 7 days/week... allowing each concentrated body part to rest for atleast 48 hours
    current bench max is around 270..
    goals? lose the extra water weight, tone down and become moderately cut while mainting current size/strength, and hopefully increasing my size/strength a little bit

    There is noo way your waist would be just 34 in. if you dropped your bf that low, when your starting out at 36. Go get it checked so you'll know for sure. Not so sure thats a good idea working out 7 days a week. Remember just because your not working out tris on chest day, doest mean that your tris arent gettin any work. Youre probably overtraining. Have a 2 or 3 day rest split between your weekly workout routine. You may definitely need to check out all the stickeys for weight training and diet.

    Now with that said, i think you're probably wanting to drop your bf. So I suggest only eating carbs in 3 meals. Meal 1, PWO, PPWO. Meal 1 --- oatmeal(complex carb), PWO--- 2:1 dextrose to protein(WHEY) Dextrose(simple carb), PPWO(meal 60-90mins after pwo)-- Brown rice, sweet potato (complex carbs); Other sources of carbs: green vegetables(complex).

    meal 1-- your first meal of the day, when you wake up;i.e. breakfast.
    pwo-- refers to the whey protein shake and dextrose (post workout) eat within 15 minutes after last rep.
    ppwo-- actual meal after pwo (lean meat and complex carbs) eat within 60 to 90 minutes after pwo

    The rest of your meals concentrate just on protein and healthy fats.
