Is that too much fat for a post-workout item? ERR GRAMS
orly? 15 pounds, fuckass?
youd probably in the can right now bro.
what are you, a bear?
Hey, I changed it to grams before any of you responded. Cut me some slack.
250g = just under 9 ounces.
Not that much actually.
However, salmon contains a good amount of fat and although it is good fat, the fat creates dense calories. If you're not cutting and not throwing a shitload of carbs in with that salmon then 9oz is fine. Good fats and TONS of protein to boot!
So what' the difference between a dense calorie and a normal calorie?
I'm sure he meant the food was calorie dense and that eating a salmon fillet has more calories than eating a chicken breast at the same weight.
250oz would be STRONG
I ate 275 oz with 3 pounds of butter sauce, what do you think of that?
It seems to be roughly
16.5 g. fat
49 g. protein
If that is too much fat for a post work-out meal, how much fat should I limit myself to after a workout? Also, would it be better to eat that before the workout?
Avoid the fat mainly if you don't get a pre-workout meal/snack/shake. The goal of limiting fat (or favoring fast absorption stuff) is only valid if you're on an empty stomach. If not, you'll already be absorbing nutrients. I still wouldn't get deep fried peanut butter but if you get a protein source and a carb source without a specific fat source (ie : fats are only residual and come from the other two), it's fine.
