The Dinkledorfs #002

I used to love working out at the gym.
For the first several years after high school, I was all into bodybuilding, and one of the cardinal rules of gaining muscle is that you need to follow up with some simple carbs and protein right after your weight training, to maximize your muscle and strength gains. Even if weight loss is your goal, you should still take advantage of that post-workout carb window (about 45 minutes after finishing your workout) to speed recovery before your next workout.
At least, that’s how it works in theory.
But not for me.
Despite my best efforts over the past several years, I didn’t seem to lose very much weight.
Perhaps because my gym had a McDonalds right next door?
