you want to be careful about the amount of can tuna you eat because of the mercury levels. Eating can tuna every day is not good. and you're eating too much Whey. You need to eat more whole foods, chicken/steak/pork/fresh fish, pork.

Drop the milk, its full of sugar and lactose, it will give you insulin spikes and make you store fat.

I would also add a pre workout meal, your not eating enough IMO.

I've heard that skim milk is ok though..it only choclate milk that'll really screw with yer insulin levels. And the whole mercury thing, i was under the impression that for men its not too bad. It's really just women that have to worry.

And also, what would a good preworkout meal be?

eric posted the studies else were about milk. It has an adverse effect on insulin, and it isnt optimal for pre or post workout.

My pre workout meal consists of 20g BCAA's, 2g CEE, 4g citruline malate, 8g fats (usually almonds or mixed nuts), and some celery sticks if i feel like i didnt eat enough.

This would also work with 20g whey protien, taken 45min to an hour before your workout. It should keep you from going catabolic while training, and since it lacks carbs you should still be able to burn fat.

Nah. Chocalate milk doesn't make hardly any difference. If you look at the GI of chocolate milk and reg. milk they're still pretty close. But the insulin spike that hardgain spoke of isn't even related to the sugar content an is disassociated from the GI. (rem. carb content doesn't usually matter as much as the GI or GL as a whole). Chocalate milk may be worse in terms of having more carbs available when that disassociated spike comes along but it's prob. overanalizing.

I think the simplist way to think of it is despite it's low GI/GL, milk is not "clean". As hargain pointed out, it's not good for pre/post workout...in fact based on the studies and other info, I can't think of a worse choice. But that's just my opinion.

It's all posted in the PreWorkout Nutrition Sticky.
