    No. Eat plenty of protein but don't worry too much about the timing of everything. If anything, eat some carbs after your workout.
    No. But it's not that bad, unless you can't handle dairy.

    "Regeneration" means rest days, right? You are not a lizard person or a zombie or something, right? If so I would give different advice.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    This is semi-related and I've been wondering. If you have a lot of carbs post-workout but do low to very low-carb the rest of the time (rest days), can that negatively affect muscle gains?

    No. That's actually the best possible strategy in my opinion. That's the basic premise of Leangains (Intermittent fasting diet for fat loss, muscle gain and health). Check out Chocotaco's 72 hour carb refeed thread on this forum for more info also.

    Well that's not exactly what I've been doing. I get three square meals a day, and I usually have at least some coffee with liberal helpings of coconut milk added in, plus some berries. The whole fasting thing, while it may be effective, doesn't seem like something I could get into. I don't think I could work out on an empty stomach anyway.

    @ H2O: Sweet potatoes, white potatoes, and white rice are generally regarded as good, safe starch sources. Also, winter sqashes, manioc/tapioca, and pretty much any other tuber/gourd are OK. Just avoid all grains (other than white rice).

    @petriquor: I hear you. I still think that keeping carbs and calories higher peri-workout and lower at other times is a good practice, even in the absence of fasting.
