peri = before
post = after[/quote]
pre == before
post == after
peri == around/during
(so peri-workout would mean 20 min before workout, during workout, AND 1 hour post workout)
The only reason why peri-workout would be less desirable is because they are fats, and it would slow down digestion of a peri-workout meal. Also, peri-workout meals are geared toward insulin response and contain carbs, and fats consumed in this time could be preferentially stored rather than burned.
Please correct me if I’m wrong.
