I just finished reading JB’s excellent article on nutrient timing, which answered many questions I’ve had about during and post-workout ‘meals’.
However, one issue that I think was hinted at but never stated explicitly (I’m a guy. I don’t take hints) is how exactly this fits into your total nutritional requirements.
I think I can best illustrate with an example.
Pretend I weight 220 lb. (I wish); JB suggests I ingest 960 kcal during/after my workout. If I’m on a 3000 kcal/day diet, are those 960 kcal in addition to, or included with, my total caloric intake for the day?
Uh… Sorry if the question still isn’t clear, or if it’s a stupid newbie question. Either way, help would be much appreciated.
