how long after working out should you wait before you eat something in order to gain weight
on average anywhere from immediately to no more than an hour later
and is eating before the workout beneficial to the weight gain?
It also depends on what you are eating. The fat, protein, carbo contents of the food you're going to eat and the desired outcome.
Anything fatty, at least 1 1/2 hours after a work out. Protein rich straight after a workout.
immediatly to 30 minutes is usually what I shoot for... I usually have a protien shake and a banana or something.
Eating is beneficial to weight gain.
Unless you are eating like a anorexic girl.
yeah obviously, i was talking specifically right before
Well I say no, how can the extra work and energy your body needs to digest food be a benefit during an intense workout session?
