~What do you consider a "cheat meal" Ryan, and if you don't mind my asking, why is the best "oppurtunity" to consume it, post-workout?

A cheat meal is something that differs from your stated eating plan. Say your eating in the zone, eating high GI carbs or lots of saturated fats would be cheating. If you stated 'I'm eating clean, no breads/pasta/potato/sugar', then eating any of those four would be a cheat.

After the workout is when your body needs more nutrients, so I'd rather eat it then. You can also view it as a reward for the hard work.

My cheat meal from last night btw; it's bad though:

A loaf of bread, baked w/ aziago cheese.
1 pack (8 large slices) smoked chicken breast
1 pineapple
1 cups ice cream w/ chocolate sauce
1 glass milk
5-6 glasses of water

The meat+bread was combined into a huge sandwich.

Ryan,

Don't feel bad, that's relatively good in comparison to my cheat meals. A while back, I went to an all y ou can eat pizza buffet and downed around 34 pieces of pizza. Beat both of my friends who are over 225 pounds. I have also been to the local gourmet all you can eat asian buffet. Sushi and Coconut shrimp by the mountains ;)

-Jay

I believe post workout is the most important time to stay in the Zone because Crossfit workouts are designed to take advantage of neuroendocrine response. I believe we should give the body the proper fuel to optimize that response.
