Hi all, i am new here and fairly new to lifting, TRULY new to strength training using the basic lifts, with some purpose and structure to the program.

To answer the post, I wasted too much time, mental agony and money on the PWO shake/meal specifics.

I would consider myself a beginner and would grab the shovel so to speak. Milk/chocolate milk, eggs, cottage cheese, shake, anything and alot of it as long as there is plenty of protein and some sugar/carbs.

Welcome to the forum Andy.

I was always lucky in that I never had the money to worry about nutrient timing, waxy maize, whey protein, etc. I just ate what I had, and generally that was mac and cheese, eggs or tuna.

I do believe a good share of post-workout nutrition is hype, or driven by the supplement industry. I know that there are many studies that reveal this or that about post-workout nutrition, but I still think that training hard and smart trumps the studies.

I don't like to discount science or research, but I am also very skeptical. I'm not from the school that believes you have to eat X grams of whatever within 7 seconds after lifting or your head will explode and you won't make any gains.

I believe that consistently hard training, and a somewhat structured eating approach is really all you need.

Also, I don't discount the possibility that for some real hardgainers, PWO might play a more important role.

I follow Alan Aragon's teachings regarding PWO nutrition. I simply go for a full meal, usually oatmeal and some sort of protein. It fills me up, I feel more satiated, and it's far healthier than a lot of empty calories from dextrose or simple sugars.

Here's a link to his article - it's an excellent read:

I have seen absolutely no difference in my own growth or cutting with any post workout eating options. Protein, sugars, waxy maize, white bread, oatmeal, etc., etc.... No diff.

I'm of the school of thought that it doesn't make a lick of difference. Eat the proper macro nutrients, get the calories you need, and stop stressing about the rest of it.

I used to crave milk...and when I say crave I mean CRAVE! I've been off of it for about 2 wks now and I don't even think about it much anymore.

Of course, I'm trying to cut....so that's why I'm not having milk. If I go on a bulk, it will be back on the menu. Other than that, I think the timing thing doesn't make enough difference to matter....but that's just my opinion that's probably not worth 2 pennies.
