8 Week Challenge – Meal Timing Suggestions
Hope you are all having fun planning your meals and trying to play around with meal timing!
I just had a few questions regarding the early morning and later evening classes and what you should do with timing. So I thought would put it on here as I know some of you are probably thinking the same thing.
For the 7:30pm folks, this is what I would do… Keep all calculations the same from the spreadsheet, just move a few things around.
|MEAL 1||MEAL 2||MEAL 6||MEAL 7||PRE WORKOUT||DURING/POST WORKOUT||POST POST WORKOUT|
For the early risers (who don’t get up 1 hour in advance), this is what I would do… For your During/post workout, I would make it a liquid form (whey protein and some sort of liquid carb) and have 2/3’s before workout on your way and the rest during workout. Post Post workout meal should be within 40 minutes of completing the workout.
Example (person needs 57g of carbs and 19g of protein and goes to 6am):
- Coconut Water 500 ml (25g)
- Lemonade 2 tbsp (32g)
- Scoop of whey (almost full scoop – 19g worth)
|DURING/POST WORKOUT||POST POST WORKOUT||PRE WORKOUT||MEAL 4||MEAL 5||MEAL 6||MEAL 7|
Keep those questions coming! 🙂
