    After you should load up with a protein shake and glutamine. You can actually feel the energy going back into your boy. Post workout protein shake is the most important meal of your day

    Before workout, I swallow 1/4 cup of oatmeal and a smoop of whey.=205cals.

    Post workout should be Whey protein & simple sugars(dextrose/Malto)
    Depending on what brand of protein you buy, glutamine will already be added. Sometimes I add more or if i have an Isopure MRP I add glutamine.
    Post workout needs to be 50gprotein, and 40gdextrose. It's the only part of the day you should have any kind of simple sugar.

    Preworkout meal should definitely be low GI index carbs like pasta or oatmeal along with a good amount of protein to give you energy and keep muscle catabolism during your workout to a minimum.
