I know how important it is to eat lots of protein (and even simple carbs) post workout. The problem is that after doing hundreds of thrusters and SDHPs and my body is shaking I don't feel like eating.

Should I wait an hour?

Drink a glass of chocolate milk, perfect 4/1 ratio of simple carbs to protein. I posted a study in nutrition about a month ago, check it out.

Like Larry said, drink something. It doesn't necessarily have to be chocolate milk, but liquid nutrition serves 2 purposes: get the nutrients to the muscles quickly (while they are super receptive to it) and it's easy to consume even post workout (when appetite is usually low). I generally have a protein shake and then eat 60-90 minutes later.

Thanks guys. I guess I'll have to start buying chocolate milk again. Is that all you take postworkout, Larry?

Edit: I had a look on the study and it was done on people doing endurance type activities. Is this still analagous to crossfit where there is a heavy muscular component?

Paul,

I have been eating a banana(part of my zone dinner) post w/o with lots of water. Then I eat the rest of my zone meal 30-45 minutes later. Of all the post workout nutrition approaches, this beats em all.

Cheers

roy

Paul, for the last month, I've been drinking a glass of chocolate milk immediately post workout. Approximately one hour later I eat a 5 block breakfast (3 eggs, 2 egg whites, one oz cheese, old fashioned oatmeal, apple, fish oil (1.5 g liquid). It has been working well for me, I don't feel as sore (don't know if it's the milk, but somthing is working).
