    How to eat around working out?

    Primal Fuel
    Should you fast before/after working out or should you eat carbs/protein/fats etc?

    Theres no right or wrong.

    I like leangains for best results. Fasted workouts, saved carbs for post workout. Check out Marks post on fasting yesterday for more details

    I usually wait about 2-3 hours after my last meal or shake before working out, but that is just because I feel better when doing so. So you may want to try both ways and perhaps just extend the period from your last meal before working out.

    It also depends on your goals.....if you are wanting to bulk up, then you'll want to eat eat eat.

    Beware of fats 'immediately' post workout since that will slow protein absorption. You'll want a fast digesting protein with some carbs such as a fruits to get the nutrients your muscles are craving in quickly. Take in fats for the meal after your post workout meal/supplementation.
