Post-Dance/Pre-Sleep Meal?


#1

Based on "science", what is the best 3am meal after -34 hours of intense dancing and before sleep?
One option is a regular endurance recovery (C:P=2-4:1), but it's not that great to consume sugar right before sleep.


#2

It doesn't matter if you are going to sleep or not.

PWO overrides that fact. If you are dancing hard enough and glycogen is depleted, the carbs will go towards refilling glyco levels and muscle recovery, not fat.


#3

Just take some more E and keep dancing. Why stop?


#4

Bacon, eggs, sausage, pancakes. What is with you kids these days?


#5

That is what I eat at 3 am.


#6

These days it's turkey bacon, egg whites only, fat-reduced sausage and whole-wheat pancakes.
