    before not too sure… just get some food that’s not sugary so you don’t crash and some that will supply you with plenty of energy.

    after the workout i suggest taking protein shakes to help build muscle.

    Protein shakes and protein bars! Any time you want to gain muscle, you have to eat a lot of protein. You shouldn’t eat an hour after a workout, and then you should eat protein–not like a fatty steak, but like eggs and milk and protein bars and stuff.

    There are a ton of protein shake powders and stuff available out there. Protein is the key to muscle building. 🙂

    You should eat a grapefruit because it eliminates calories.

    1. Eat fruits before work out… or some light meal like biscuits or milk
    2. Avoid carboydrates and fatty food
    3. You are not a body builder so leave on natural intake of food

    1. carbohydrates
    2. During a workout you should only be drinking water (lots of it!)
    3. Protein shakes or Weight Gainer, and Creatine

    Before a workout, you can eat some with more carbs for an energy boost but less protein and fat (as these take longer to digest).

    Within 45 minutes or so after a workout, eat low fat low carb protein rich food or have a protein shake.

    You want to eat carbs and protein before your workout. The carbs will give you energy and the protein will help you get bigger

    2.What type of food should i be eating a workout, so i can get good results.
    After a workout you want lots of protein to help your muscles rebuild. And some really good sources of protein are
    -grilled chicken
    -steak (also has natrual creatine)
    -tuna
    -eggs (casein protein)

    3.What shakes/supplements should i be taking before/after a workout?
    Protein shakes are good but you want real food too. Creatine is great if you get really serious about lifting but make sure you drink lots of water.
    And I just got some muscletech anabloic halo and that stuff is great, a little pricey, but great

    This is what I do:

    1 hour before, 30-50 grams of protein (whole food), 50-100 grams of carbs, nitric oxide, cla, caffeine anhydrous (180 milligrams)

    During: Powerade or gatorade

    Imediately after: 50 grams of ON whey, amino acids, 50 grams of carbs

    1 1/2 – 2 hours after: 10-16 oz of fish or chicken, 10 oz sweet potato, 1 can green beans, 1/2 gal of water

    This works for me, but I’m also going for 4000 – 5000 cals a day for bulking, plus I’m 260+ on LBM. This is only a portion of my daily calloric intake, but many of my meals follow along the same lines.

    If you need anything else, feel free to e-mail me.
