I just started really working out with the crossfit beginners program every weekday for the past 2 weeks.
I’ve been doing nearly perfect zone/paleo. I have been working out in the evening usually. After the workout I still have at least one more 5 block meal I need to get in. After every workout, about 1-2 hours after the work out. Right when I’m about to get around to fixing that meal. I crash and just fall asleep. It’s not a very pleasant sleep either and I wake up at like 3 am starving.
I may have answered my own question looking back at the last two weeks that I need a post work out meal. I am new to this and never really considered PWO meals essential.
Do you think not eating a post workout meal is causing me to crash like this?
What are you guys’ experience with the necessity of post workout meals?
If you don’t think this is the cause of the crash, what is?
