Re: Post workout crash! How important are post workout meals?

I find if I don't eat something within an half-hour after a hard workout, I am painfully, ravenously hungry later, and I find it hard to eat moderately the whole rest of the day. Even if I eat a good meal later on, if I've missed that window, it's like there's a monster in my gut that just keeps demanding to be fed.

That post-workout snack, done up right, keeps me from fighting intense urges to just eat and eat all day long.

I usually bring a shake to the gym: protein powder, frozen berries and nuts blended together. Works wonders. Keeps me human.
