For those of you who are just getting back into this, do you guys find that carb cravings is an issue? I just started working out intensely about a month and a half ago, and I will literally tear the kitchen apart looking for carbs to eat. We don't usually keep bread in the house because I find that it's too heavy to eat before a work out, even if I wait an hour or so to digest, which sucks because when those carb cravings hit, it gets ridiculously uncomfortable.

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.

If you're gonna eat carbs, straight after a tough workout is the time to do it. More so than any other time. Yup protein (can be shake) is the go but I don't think carbs are totally the enemy post workout. You're body will use em much more efficiently straight after tearing down some muscle tissue. People even believe straight sugar is good at that time.

There's articles out there that i've read but it's been a while so can't provide links because I'm lazy

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

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.
