carbohydrates to refill all the energy levels you would have used- things such as pasta, spaghetti, potatoes, bread along them kind of lines- noodles are a good source of carbs- but not pot noodle! laugh out loud

small glass of chocolate milkshake to give me a bit of energy, then fruit and maybe a bacon sarnie!

Two pints of guiness and a bag of chips according to Andy Mcnab.

I would say chicken and pasta but I'm by no means an expert.

Just found out recently that the fizzy orange bottles of lucozade had 58% of your recommended daily amount of sugar :eek:

yeh i stay away from them, i used to use the powder as well.

Has anyone tried those ridiculous sized energy drinks that are in beer cans *text deleted* (laugh out loud F.M.J!!) They are called Monster, Relentless, Inferno etc

i had about 4 the other day while i was at work and i was buzzing my tits off!

Hold on, what the f'uck is everyone talking about?

Before sports - Energy needed (Carbs - Pasta, Rice, Bread.. keep it brown)
After sports - Recovery needed (Protein - chicken tits, lean steak, turkey)

Keep away from bacon, pork, any kind of red meat like that. Chicken and Turkey is the best meat in the world, so lean and full of protein. Go bear grylls style, eat an eyeball from a deer or moose, or maybe eat a stag beetle - full of the protein you need.

Yes you do need carbs after sports but not too much, only if you intend to train later during the day. keep away from redbull, fizzy lucozade.

Beer seems to be a good way of getting the gut back, bet many of you won't be reading this due to that :laugh: Hope your all enjoying yourselfs!

Well you should drink little and often before and during training, but *text deleted**text deleted* loads after training.
