I’ve been on TR since October last year and am seeing really great progress. 95% of my midweek workouts I will do in the evening, usually starting at some time between 8pm and 9pm. I do a fair portion of the cooking for me and my partner as I’m home earlier, and we like to have dinner together.
We eat a prediminantly vegetarian diet and myself especially eat a lot of carbs in the form of fruit, vegetables, bread, pasta and rice. Not yet using any suppliments.
Usually I will eat dinner, then be on the turbo within about 30 minutes, after a 90 minute workout and a shower its pretty much time for me to hit the hay. I’ve always been of the thinking that eating just before going to sleep was not a good idea, but your body is most receptive to nutrients immediately after a workout which is where my confusion stems.
I suppose my question boils down to this really… is eating immediately before a workout as effective as eating just after a workout? (assuming what is eaten before is high quality).
Sorry for the long post, just trying to make my situation clear as this has been on my mind for some time now!
