  • Help me plan my PWO nutrition.

    Here's my problem. I live 30 minutes from the armpit of nowhere.

    My gym is about 40 minutes from where I live.

    I'm struggling with the best way to handle eating after my workout.

    Right now, I've been grabbing something at a restaurant. It's not optimal, or not even smart, I just need something.

    I have no fridge or microwave access unless I drive home.

    Any ideas for the best way to handle this? The goal, for the record, is to get lean.

    Should I pre-cook a batch of sweet potatoes and keep them with me in a lunch box, and just eat them cold?

    I guess I could pack canned fish or chicken and eat those.

    I'm struggling to have a good plan, and I'd love some input.

    Bring a large salad with some meat.
    That should do the trick if not meat bring a large salad some berries and some olive oil.

      I like that idea. Easy to execute too.

      If I do berries and olive oil, is there enough fat there? Do I need any walnuts or anything?

        If it's post work out you could either go the fatty route or the small carb route to help with the depleted muscles.
        That's not to say go back to eating 200+carbohydrates a day..

          Oh lord, I feel too crappy and get too fat on that to know better.

          I've been doing more metcon type stuff lately, and I've felt WAY in need of food after I get done, so I want to make sure I've got a good plan so I don't make bad choices.
