I am currently following the workout and the nutrition program in John Berardi’s ‘Scrawny to Brawny’ Book-(currently halfway through Phase 3-wave loading)
My main question is: Is it normal to feel totally drained after my workouts, so drained in fact, that I have actually fell asleep on the couch staight after my post workout protein/carb drink, and have had to woken up about an hour later for my next meal…
As per the program, my meal 1-1.5hrs before my workout is 200g tuna or chicken breast, large garden salad (broccoli, carrot and green beans), 1tsp olive oil & 1tsp flax oil (mixed with milk-can’t get it down otherwise). Then 20 mins before w/out-protein/carb drink, and another sipped during workout.
p.s - without posting my whole daily diet, the main thrust is that predominently Protein & fat meals during day, then predominently Protein & Carbs after w/out for rest of day. (w/out about 4-5pm).
Any advice greatly welcomed
