Jay sits down to answer one of his most frequently asked questions: What's the best pre and post meal?

It's no secret that Jay knows food, which is why he constantly gets asked what the best options are for pre and post-workout meals. With his focus now set on clean eating, Jay has ditched the 1000g of carbs he used to eat while competing, and cut his protein intake in half, so his advice has changed.

His pre-workout recommendation: Eat a solid meal an hour before working out. His ideal meal consists of 8oz of grilled chicken and 1 1/2 cups of white rice. Finishing his workout, Jay recommends consuming about 40-50g of whey protein, and following that with simple sugars to restore the glycogen levels (15mins after the shake).

His final piece of advice is to consume another solid meal within one hour of training, and this can consist of chicken and rice, or if you want to switch it up, fish or sweet potato.
