You definitely need to eat beforehand and after. Since it's so early in the morning, you should eat something that absorbs slowly. Or drink a protein shake in milk.

I sure wouldnt suggest a milk protein shake before any ice time. Proteins arent that redily available as an energy source and unless its skim milk the fat content will slow oxygen delivery to the muscle cells as well as reduce the rate that waste products are removed. This leads to cramping, fatigue and soreness from lactic acid build up. At the very least you might just end up making a mess on the bench or ice when the concoction comes back up. The following article is goalie specific but I feel it still applies to the out player for the most part.

Post work out is when the body is at its fastest as far as replacing energy stores in the liver and muscles. The 1-1.5 hour window after is a good time to get carbs back in. A skim choc milk is a good starter. Given your desirte to drop some weight you might want to drop the fat precentage a tad bit or at least make sure its the "good" variety.















Edit: Added final page that I forgot in original post

At 5' 7" I think all my Sons would describe me as pocket sized! lol Just sharing the info I have searched out over the last 46-ish years of playing this great game. This site has a very large group of people who share thier knowledge and experience in a friendly manner so it makes it very easy to also participate.
