My goals are to increase lean muscle and to bulk up a bit.
When you eat don't go on a binge of eating everything in sight, not unless you are a powerlifter. Bulk diets you would incorporate an extra 500-1000 calories.
Well before lifting I can tell you that is when you want to have fast acting carbs and whey. 60g carbs and 15-25g protein.
On workout days I have some form of carbs before my WO
Make sure 1/2 - 1 hour before WO.
Are slow releasing carbs a bad idea straight after a WO? I am wondering whether it would be beneficial to change from a protein only shake post W.O. to one similar to my breakfast one? Can anyone give any advice about eating around workouts in particular post workout.
Thats a good question Kenny and Tim would have input on that.
