Milk and cereal

or

quick oats soaked in milk and greek yogurt in the fridge overnight. High GI, good carbs, lots of protein

or

cereal and a smoothie from various berries.

Really depends on what kind of ride and what the demands of it are. In terms of gaining and losing weight I've found I can lose weight extremely fast (too fast) by just cutting down on what I eat during the rest of the day. Post-ride I can take in almost anything in quantity as long as its reasonable and be OK. Dumbest time to cut out carbs or calories.

if you're gonna go with milk, buy organic.

i use Optimum Nutrition Platinum HydroWhey or MuscleMilk. Both are really good for immediately after a workout. i eat Allen Lim's fried rice after i shower or clean up and stretch. Then at night i take a ZMA and some melatonin to sleep. Wake up the next day and repeat! if you want.

As above, but make sure you drink it as soon as you have finished your ride

I am always down for chocolate milk right after a ride. If I can, I also eat a roast beef sandwich, the red meat is a good musle replenishment.

Just curious as to how you quantified the recovery improvement? Felt better? HR, power etc?


One issue I have with a lot of powders etc is they are a little light on saturated fat. Full cream milk FTW! (as long as you aren't lactose intolerant).

Pah, never mind recovery.

This, sir, is just generally known as a kick ass lunch! :thumbup:

tapeworm- very unscientific im afraid- no power meter or hrm.

I alternated between the choc milk and the powder for a couple of weeks just to see if powder was worth the $$. i was doing a bit over 400km per week (alot for me- mostly climbs and steady state) and just felt noticeably better on the days after i had the recovery powder. In fact, i noticed it more in the afternoons after heavy training mornings. I looked at the difference in ingredients and the powder has more carbs than the milk but protein was about the same (from memory). Maybe that was it or maybe its the difference in types of protein/carbs (as the marketing blurb claims), but, subjectively, i thought it worked a bit better.

FWIW, when i dropped back to a more manageable 250km per week, the choc milk was absolutely fine though i dont usually have any recovery issues at this distance.

I don't believe that so many of you riders consume dairy products before-after activity. The best upgrade for my nutrition was eliminating dairy product from my body, my digestion system work much better, I feel great without it now. My recommendation, try your daily nutrition without dairy products and feel the difference your self.

@ royk if you had some sort of lactose intolerance I could see this being a huge boon to drop all diary products. But if not what exactly is causing the issue? FWIW, I usually down about 1-2 litres per day.
