another flax question...
Sorry if this was already answered but I need someone to clear this up for me. I wake up ed to a cup of oats and a scoop of protein followed by my workout (no cardio) an hr later. Basically my schedule is as follows: Meal 1, workout, pwo drink, meals 2-6. Now from my understanding...I should not add flax to my 1st meal since carbs and fats should NOT go together. And the 3 important meals following my workout should be void of any fat as to avoid storing fat from increased slin levels. And I was told (but don't understand why) that a scoop of protein mixed with water is my best bet before bed as my last meal. So the question is where does flax seed oil find room in my diet?...Usualsuspect

Well, depending on what kind of diet I'm on I take 1-6 Tblspns a day. Right now I'm on a maintenace diet and take in 1 which is consumed in my 2nd meal of the day. Allthough I don't workout untill after my 5th meal in the evening.
I would say, find a meal that you can make protein and fats and do that.
The 3 meals following your workout would be OK to take Flax. It's a matter of energy, so if your consuming more food than your body needs for energy, you'll have fat storage(whether it's carbs or fat)
Before bed, I either have some fat free cottage cheese, a piece of chicken or a peice of lean steak. Then at 3am, I consume a protein shake

I like to use it before bed mainly as it slows down the absorption of my protein, but other than that I have it whenever I can fit it in, except post workout.
