Consume Fats-How Long After Post Workout?


#1

I was just wondering how long after a workout you should wait before you supply your body with fats. The only fats i consume are from nuts, flax, fish, avacado, and I was wondering when im allowed to resume my intake of fats during my cutting cycle.


#2

You are "allowed" to do whatever you want hah, but I would suggest, since you are cutting to just have carbs/protein PWO and then you can add in fats after that. When bulking I like to have the the first two meals after my workout strictly P+C, but if you are going for leanness I believe just immediately PWO you should avoid fats.


#3

It is best to have most of your fats later in the day, PWO being the exception. Your PWO meal should ideally be P+C. It is perfectly fine to resume fat consumption starting with your next meal. Please note that P+C means that the majority of kcal should be from P+C, it does not mean that you should not eat any fats.

Keep thinking about this shit!

You can consume it whenever you want. Work out, and if you're on a low-carb diet that warrants having a fat-containing meal after a workout, go home, shower, and eat it!
