Just out if curiosity, what does everybody eat before you swim and after you swim? Any time frames of when you eat?

So you don't eat a lot of protein afterwards?

Since my workouts start at 5 am, I don't eat. If I do, I taste it all practice. After, I like Greek yogurt, eggs and protein bars for breakfast.....with lots of coffee.

Our team practice is in the evening,so I finish about 9 pm. By the time I get home , it's 10pm & I eat a Mcdonalds salad with grilled chicken.

I usually swim after work and generally don't eat anything immediately before. Afterwards I've got about an hour till dinner time so I'll generally drink a beer and snack on something.

When I swim in the morning I'll have a bowl of cereal and coffee.

A peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread and a banana is my customary post-swim snack. Sometimes I add a plain Greek yogurt cup, especially after a more-demanding-than-usual workout.

I will sometimes do the chocolate milk thing since it is highly recommended for the sugars and protein after a workout. Sometimes I have dinner about 45 afterwards and just wait until that. Wondering if I am eating enough protein or if I am overeating protein thinking that the workout is more intense than it was.
