    It's not necessary ,but always good to restore your body with protein and lost nutrients. Skim milk or any milk for that matter is great after a workout I think. I may be wrong but it helps rebuild what you tore down.

    Just have something small. Perhaps have a smaller meal before 1.5-2hrs before you hit the gym so that some hunger strikes after you finish your workouts and then have either a small shake or munch on some trail mix just to put something in. That's what I would do.

    werd . . keep it liquid . . milk is a good option, but what PnP has outlined would work best

    Sounds like a bad idea no matter the goal!

    1) Your not taking advantage of the "anabolic window" PWO
    2) Your body relatively goes into a fasting and very catabolic state while you sleep (there are no nutrients coming in).

    This is why it's absolutely essential to eat upon waking. At the very LEAST do the protein shake immediately post workout. Include your BCAAs, glutamine, etc. in the shake.
