Ok folks, I'm normally quite clued and and happy with my diet. I recover well from climbing sessions and don't struggle too much with weight/hunger issues.
However, when I'm working offshore (which I'm doing again right now), to get a gym session in, I either have to get up early
, or go after dinner.
Re: the second option, after dinner. I try to have a sensible dinner, mix of protein, carbs and fat. Food basically
. Then I wait an hour to 1.5 hours before hitting the gym. Sometimes it''l be cardio, but more often weights & core stuff.
To my question: if you have eaten a reasonable amount of protein during the day, does it make much difference to have more after the session? Or is a general snack (jam sandwich is about all I can get from the galley) good enough? Also, how much do you need to eat? 200kcal? 400? I've noticed if I eat to little I lie awake hungry!
Or should I stock pile a couple of boiled eggs at breakfast?
