Anyone have any thoughts on what to eat after a late night cardio workout? Late being around 9:30-10:00pm? I usually eat dinner around 6. Or would it be better to not eat anything?

My goal, as it seems it has been for quite some time, is to lose weight so I dont want to compromise my diet. I'm currently taking in around 1600 calories a day; 30/50/20 (pro/carbs/fat).

Thanks in advance.

Pam

Well, I would, and do, eat something, light, say in the neighborhood of 200 kcal, fairly low on the GI (yes, most nutritionists are heading towards an II, or insulin index vice the GI, it's more of a glycemic load of the entire meal rather than judging by individual components), and keep it somewhat isocaloric, or at least in the ratio of what you are currently doing. This will lead to a slower breakdown, and give your body what it needs during the fasting period of sleep without overloading it and causing fat storage.

Translation: Cottage cheese. Great whey/casein profile, decent carb content. Get yourself some flax meal and mix it in and not only will you have a great night time snack, you will be exceedingly regular in the morning.

Been a long time Pam, glad to see you on the board again. I have been pretty busy and find it hard to post workouts so I quit going to the powerlifting forum but still read here whenever I get a moment.

Hi Ryan. It has been awhile. I hear you about being busy. Decided that I have put working out on the back burner way too long. I've only worked out here and there for about the last 8 months. Getting back into again though and it feels great. I just wish I were a morning person so I could get it in before the day started rather than at night.

How is school going for you?

It is going well.

Just finished my first quarter of my 1st year in the PhD program here at Davis.

It isn't that much different than my undergraduate but I think once I begin research it will be very different. That is still atleast a year off though so I will wait and see.

Yes, it will be very different once you begin research. :) My typical week was in at 10am, out after 10pm, Monday through Saturday (though Saturdays I usually left around 6). Not everyone did that, but my advisor was a new prof so our group had to work a little harder to get the experiments set up and running.

Well,

I am not an experimentalist so I don't think I will have that problem.
