Well i posted in the newbie bit to say i was back after depression and life situations i guess that has put me out of training for about a year. I want back in my training and nutrition big time, i really miss it again and havent felt like that for a very long time, so can only be a good thing. The problem i have is i cant go back to the training routine i had before. I used to train a lot actually, twice a day. I know overtraining and all that. I dont want to end up obsessive like i was before but i did get a figure i hadnt had for a long long time. The issue i have now is the situtaion around my nutrition. So all the help i can get on this one is going to be so grateful. Day starts 6.30am breakfast - not an issue mid morning snack - not an issue lunch no issue afternoon snack - what is the best thing pre work out and how long before? Due to my circumstances i am working two jobs which means i will be going to the gym at 4pm out of the gym and showered etc by 5.20. then collect couple people straight to work again not home till 8.30/9.00. From the gym my main concern is nutrition. I did wonder if i could just do protein shake and some carbs after my workout and maybe just eggs and veggies when i get home ?? My main aim is to drop body fat and put on lean muscle , i want to get this sorted from the get go so im not messing about.
