Hi All - I've been eating very cleanly and starting a consistent workout routine (cardio on stationery bike or elliptical for an hour 4x-5x a week; strength training 3x-4x a week). Trying to tie in nutrition better with the exercise. I've read about eating a ratio of 4:1 carb/protein after working out to aid recovery, within an hour or so after I think.
But what about before the workout, and the timing? (Like should it be 1 or 2 hrs before working out, etc.) My goal is losing weight, and getting more fit to be ready when it's warm enough to take the bike outside.
One more question, what target ratio should I be aiming for on a daily basis (i.e. 40% protein, 40% carb, 20% fat) I'm not sure.
Thanks in advance.
