ParagonA and BBB,
How long do catecholamine levels remain elevated and how much do they affect the insulin response? Or, in more practical terms, how long after the workout is it the most productive to have carbs again? For example, here is how I eat for the first part of the day:
1) Within 30min-1h of waking up 25g whey + tea, cinnamon, Ricore (I'll also add 5g leucine to this sometime next week)
2) 2-2.5h after waking up I start training. I mix 2 scoops SWF, 2 Anaconda and 1 MAG-10 for that. I drink about a quarter of it 15 minutes before I start lifting, finish it pretty much at the same time as my last set. I'll occasionally have a Finibar 30 minutes before training
3) 45 minutes after the end of the workout 50g whey + 30g carbs (equal parts WMS, palatinose, dextrose)
4) 90 minutes after the end of the workout solid meal, roughly 60g protein, 90g carbs (I'll also add 5g leucine to this sometime next week)
I only have trace carbs for the remainder of the day.
I'd appreciate any comments on the possible rearrangement of this as an example of improving carb distribution
