T-nation has been pushing what they call "peri-workout" nutrition for a while, based on the idea that what you eat before, during, and after your training can have a huge effect on results. Personally, I use my post workout period to eat my biggest, most carb heavy meals. My favorite is pizza. I've heard other variations as well, like a suggestion that you should eat protein right before training, then carbs afterwards, because protein takes longer to digest and if you eat protein after training it won't get broken down enough to be useful until the "window" is closed.

Does it really make a difference? Probably not as much as many believe.
