    Yeah, in that he debunks a lot of the supposed truisms about meal timing that exist within the lifting world (e.g. you'll shrivel away if you don't eat every 2-3 hours).

    I've been working on my back with the theracane that i posted a bit back. I have so many trigger points on my injured shoulder it's stupid. Hopefully this will give me some additional relief.

    Ya, IF and carb back loading use a lot of the same material, so your link is very supportive of Coldsnap's position.

    As far as meal timing, I've never really worried about it except for getting a shake in within an hour of completing my workout(ideally within 30 minutes). Other than that, doesn't really matter much to me.

    On a side note, god I hate the consequences of a cheat meal. GF took me to a brunch buffet...good night sweet definition. That salt and water retention...that feeling of bloat...totally not worth it. I guess it'll motivate me to eat super clean the next week or so.

    One really important to keep in mind with all fitness and nutrition science is that any time you are asking whether or not something works, you should also be asking how important said thing is. Meal timing is a great example. There is in fact a lot of evidence saying that your body will react differently to food at different times throughout the day. Does this mean that dialing in meal timing should be your number one priority? Probably not. Why? Because even though it matters, it doesn't matter as much as a lot of other things - namely food quality and quantity. Meal timing is the sort of thing to start thinking about AFTER you've dialed in food quality and quantity for a while and changes are starting to plateau. It's a small ticket item, and almost certainly not a starting point for improving nutrition.

    Re: "Quality" Whey Powders, I think essentially the same thing. Is there a difference? Probably, but likely a very small one compared to all the other nutrition choices you are making. If you've got the money to be buying fancy whey powders, you should just be eating more meat.

    Wanted to get rid of some chicken today and I've been seeing too many Buffalo Wild Wings commercials lately, so I made my own wing sauce. Put vinegar-based hot sauce, dried garlic and parsley, chilli powder, ground cumin, and a little bit of Splenda in a plastic bag with a couple pounds of sliced chicken breasts and let sit in the fridge for a couple of hours. Turned out well. The mixture was spicy without being too hot, and the bit of Splenda added a hint of sweetness to the finished product.

    Pretty happy with it, since it's a challenge to find a store-bought wing sauce that isn't filled with a bunch of junk.

    Had a few beers last night, could have gone to the gym without it. Not hungover, just tired, dehydrated despite drinking vast quantities of water, eating plenty of greasy food and feeling a bit queazy straight from the first pint.

    Thinking of making a shake when i wake up in the morning. Currently make some oatmeal + whey when I get to work but honesty I kind of hate it even though I can choke it down.

    2 Scoops Whey + Ice + Banana + ???

    I'm lactose intolerant so water or lactaid probs.

    Should I fuck with raw oats/oat powder? I tried it with instant oatmeal and it got kinda gross, though it was without ice.

    What about instant coffee for a little morning pick me up as well?

    Can you fry an egg? Takes five minutes and a few eggs in the morning will keep you plenty full. Protein and good fats. If you wants some carbs eat a banana as well. If frying eggs in the morning is too much, can always hard boil a dozen on a Sunday night or something. They'll keep for a few days with the shell on in the fridge.
