Hey! I've been following a paleo style diet the last month and half and have seen some great improvements in body fat percentage aswell as energy. I've read up on GI(glycemic index) and have a pretty good understanding of what to eat and what not. I've been trying to take in 1gram of protein pound i weigh. approximetely 25-40grams per meal.

Im looking for information on post meal workouts/ timing of when to take supplements/carbs/protein/fat.

I've read that directly after working out glycogen must be restored completely before the catabolic phase can end and the anabolic can begin. What would some recomendations be for what to eat and howmuch after a workout? I have also seen it suggested that fat be left out of post workout meals.

Been taking vitamins, ive decided to start only taking them every otherday as it doesnt seem neccesary to take everyday. also i have been using the costco fish oil. i started taking only 2 tablets a day but now ive increased it to 6. i know some people take up to 20tabs a day. what would be a good amounts for someone at 145pound bodyweight?

Since crossfit is founded around eliciting strong hormonal responses what kind of foods/supplements would give the most bang for the buck? What are all your thoughts on Glutamine, BCAA's, other amino acids, systematic enzymes like vitalzyn or other generic ones.

Matt, if you read through the last 10 days' posts you'll find the answers to most of your questions.

Until you have nailed the core of your diet, all supplements are a waste of money, with the possible exception of fish oil.

Thanks for replying.

Yes i have been checking out the latest topics, alot has been answered already. I just went ahead and order "The Omega Rx Zone: The Miracle of the New High-Dose Fish Oil" book from amazon lastnight. Hopefully this will take away alot of my nutritional confusion.

I have leaned a lot from this forum, and continue to do so. There is a good range of specialised and general knowledge to draw from. It all works best if you read the books for background then use the forum for specific questions. Let us know what you think of the book, and what Sears defines as "High-Dose".
