    i like homemade breakfast burritos... 2 strips of turkey bacon, 2 eggwhites & 1 whole egg, Franks hot sauce, and fresh salsa in a whole wheat tortilla with a steamy cup of coffee with a smidge of hazelnut creamer. love it. but late at night when i work out after work (0230hrs) its usually a bag of planters unsalted mixed nuts, tropical punch whey protein, and some water. light on the stomach right before bed.

    I have been bodybuilding for the last 20 years of my life and Ive hated cardio for just as long.lol. I have just started pushing myself into cardio a bit more..ie...riding the bike cause buddy I hate running. But again, I'm only concerned with a post workout meal after an anaerobic workout.

    Now back to the topic... my favorite after workout meal is definitely a power smoothie and then an hour and a half later I follow it up with some type of meat (chicken, steak, or fish) and rice or a salad.

    One thing that works for me is that I have an album on my iPod that I will listen to most of the album at least once during my workout and that is the only time I listen to it. That way if I'm finding it hard to get motivated on a particular day I play a couple of songs from the album on my computer and I find that by listening to it my mind automatically associates that with lifting so I start getting pumped up and want to go lift.

    Now for running I have yet to find the key to motivate myself to go running as often as I should. So, if anyone knows some good motivation for that please share. Although I have started downloading "The Academy" from Amazon and watching all those people who can't run getting yelled at and stuff is kinda motivating cuz I know I don't want to be one of those guys when I get to the academy.

    Understandable....finding motivation to do something that isn't fun can be really tough. My girlfriend helps motivate me when I'm feeling crappy and don't want to run ( I HATE running) and I motivate her. We try to go running together and that seems to help. Try to work out with a partner and you'll find it's easier to motivate the other person and get it in return. Much easier to go running when someone is right beside you telling you to quit slacking

    Gotta go with Future on this one. Excellent post workout shake. The body, after workout, is craving nutrients and will soak up a moderate carb high protein shake like nobodys business. Eating solid food puts a damper on the body being able to absorb the nutrients quickly for muscle recovery as the food must be broken down and then processed. Solid food for the rest of the day and a good ol' shake right after workout.

    You should have quick digesting carbs after a workout.. Save the wheat products for other meals.. I post workout meal should be low fat, high protein, med-high carbs

    Here is mine

    50grams of whey protein
    100grams of dextrose powder
    Some water.. Shake
    1000mg of vitamin C - Emergen-C pack

    Followed about 1.5 hours later by 8-10 oz chicken breasts and 1-3 cups of rice..depending on my diet plans (Weight loss/gain)

    I usually have a protein shake, and carbs are good post workout as well. I like waxy maize. I customize my own formula of protein at www.trueprotein.com not too terrible of prices, and you get pretty much what you want.

    Lots of water, some vitamin C and a multivitamin.

    After that, anything that doesn't move.

    If I'm in a real hurry, and apple or banana.

    I actually use the Adams brand all natural peanut butter (extra crunchy ) tastes great and gives you some good fats and other fun stuff. I actually mix my protein powder with blueberry-pomegranate juice. Lots of vitamin c and tastes great. it has a few more calories than I might like, but the vitamin c and the taste make up for it.
