Re: Post workout nutrition for a big guy?

Don't worry about supplements, except: large amounts of Fish Oil (10g or >). Go for a 45 minute walk every day (separated from the WOD by at least 5 hours). Be consistent and don't cheat for at least a couple of months. Weigh and measure you food for at least 3 weeks, you'd be surprised at what your eating. No calorie containing beverages; only water, tea, coffee.
Thanks guys. I should have been more clear. I was thinking in terms of Zone and wanted to make sure it wasn't something I shouldn't consider doing? Is milk not good Larry? It's allowable by Zone standards and I drink a cup or two a day mostly before bed. It's an easy way to get my blocks for a snack. David how long did it take you to lose your bf?
