    Post lifting snacks?

    I cannot get into protein shakes.
    What do you eat?

    I typically lift right before dinner, so dinner.

    Are you looking to gain weight or lose weight? That makes a difference.

    If you mean literal snacks (like portable food that easy to snack on), try beef jerky, fruit, rice cakes, coconut water. And if you're looking to gain weight, try macadamia nuts, dark chocolate, dates, and other really calorie dense foods and put those babies down the hatch.

    I eat my meals at the usual time no matter what time I work out.

    I've been eating dinner, but sometimes it's a few hrs after I workout. I read that you should eat after, but haven't and thought maybe that's why I'm kinda tired. I'm looking to lose weight.

    Muscle protein synthesis is elevated for quite a while post-workout (assuming you lift weights). The recommendations to eat within an hour after lifting are unsubstantiated/based on those training completely fasted. If you're not training fasted, post workout nutrition is not that important, assuming you're hitting your calorie and macronutrient totals for the day.

    Thanks that helps with my understanding. Yes, barbell weight training, not sure with the macros that whole deal is hard to figure out, never fasting before training.
