If you have fat to loose the no PWO meal is a nice option. If you are trying to get heeeyyyyuuuuge...PWO meal may be pretty important. tinker and see what happens...keep your own personal goals in mind and make good decisions from there. Certainly read studies and listen to "experts" but your goals and experience are what matter.

Let me say I was perhaps one of the biggest believers in Berardi's approach to post-workout nutrition. You can remember me arguing my position til the sun went down. That was then.

After spending a good amount of time on this board and soaking in as much information as I could, I decided to try dropping the liquid shake (dextrose uh!) in favor of a paleo-friendly meal. Of course I was majorly hesistant at first. So was I glad I dropped my PWO shake? You bet! Like most, within only a few weeks I noticied an increase in performance and most importantly, a decrease in body fat. Did I mention I've actually gained muscle mass as well? yep, its true. So......

The best advice is to try both approaches to PWO and see what works best for you. "You" being the key word. Keep in mind, you're insulin sensivity will have a major affect on your PWO nutrition. If you have a naturally high metabolism and handle carbs well, liquid shake might do you good. If on the other hand, you tend to put on muscle and fat quickly, might be a good idea to go PALEO.

Hope this post is helpful. Good luck.

I'm a fan of a post work out paleo meal an hour to an hour and a half after the workouts.
