In brief: Eat a small meal -

-with carbs & sugar.
Fruit & cereal. U need this for energy then eat some yogert after workouts, the small containers have 12gms of protein. So U don't have 2 eat a large meal. Many meals, small amounts throughout the day.

When you eat a full meal,a significant amount of blood is needed for digestion,and competes with ones muscles for extra blood,when working out.
