    Post-workout protein shake/dinner timing?






    Hello all- Newbie here.

    So I am just getting started with all this. I know- 5/6 meals a day. But I generally work out in the evening after work. How should I time the pre-workout meal, post-workout shake and dinner? I ask this because I don't want to take in more than 40g of protein at a time. So if I take the post-workout shake, which I like to do, it will be between 7-8 PM and I will want to eat dinner soon. I don't want to take my shake at 7:30 and eat dinner at 8. Any advice?

    i usually eat 1.5 hours before the workout, the shake immediately after the workout, and then a "normal" meal another 1 hour after that
    Not all who wander are lost.
    Do or do not. There's no try.

    That is perfect timing.


    My question is why don't you want to take in more than 40 grams at one meal?
