There's articles out there that i've read but it's been a while so can't provide links because I'm lazy
simple sugars like starches sugar digest very fast and get into the blood in a matter of hours. Eating simples after a workout is counter productive and can add fat rather then repair muscle mass. So heres what I do to recover and suppliment leaning out. Complex carbs like sweet potatos (fiber rich carbs) digest over a longer period of time and keep your metabolism working (why fiber makes you shit) so if you mix in high amounts of proteins from whole foods it should take your body a full 8 hours to consume this energy and make it available in the blood for use. Now if you eat at 7am then its in your blood at 3pm not what you want because your body is not in repair mode. Try timing your meals so they are in the blood when you are sleeping thats when your body burns cals and uses daily nutrition for repair.

Your workout doesnt make you hungry for more carbs. Your diet makes you hungry for more carbs. Hvaing said that add more proteins to your diet man fuck protein shakes man its not a whole food (think of it as cheap protein) so it doesnt do much for your metabolism. Protein shakes are just suppliments they help they dont cure. Eggs are hard to metabolize which makes them filling and they burn cals just through digestion. Like I said fuck protein shakes eggs are also cheaper too you can get 60 eggs at costco for 7.99

Bretfred haha for some reason i got this mental image of a dude thrashing his kitchen like some kind of crazed fiend in search of a fix. But I def get those too if i dont get something im not myself.

slyder Yep and this is totally where diet control is needed.
Usually a good protein shake will take care of those cravings and way better for you.

Donutz At Whistler this last March I was unpleasantly surprised to find myself running out of gas after some of those long runs. Leg burn became a real issue. It's not simply a question of endurance as I run half-marathons, but that's different from the muscle strength necessary to hold a semi-squat for long periods of time. Anyway, I started playing around with different exercise formats and I eventually discovered that using a moderate weight and doing very slow reps (about 15 seconds per rep) with no bottoming or topping out produces a burn very much like what I was getting while boarding. So I've been doing sets of Very Slow Reps, combined with about 15 minutes of stretching, and a couple of sessions on the balance board. Feels like a very good conditioning regimen for snowboarding. Of course I also still do the treadmill, and run regularly.

I would think its what would you prefer. The size gains that you have made from weight lifting or park riding. Personally I loved being ripped at 210lbs back in the day. I don't think that the added weight would affect your riding as the muscles and your balance are far more important. I have seen scrawny like kids nailing great tricks and I have seen bigger kids throwing awesome 7's. So I don't think your weight would be an issue as stated before more your ability to control and use your body.

Core

I think that the most important thing for snowboarding is core. Dont go and bulk up on machines that basically get you huge without the ability to lift anything other than the machine. Use free weights to train your core. This has helped my snowboarding incredibly this last season.
