That's what I live by, too. But I read the 4 Hour Body and he decided to test this theory by implanting a blood sensor and measuring when nutrients got to his bloodstream. What he found was that it took much longer than expected, enough so to argue for taking your protein shake right before working out, that way the protein was in the bloodstream right when your body needed it. I still take my protein shake after working out, but it's something to think about.

I am, however, fanatical about eating a full meal within 60 minutes of working out, no excuses. My body consistently shuts down if I miss that window. One of the dangers to going for a beer after a game. For this reason, I always pack a protein bar. (Not sufficient, but helps.)
