If I understand correctly, getting the same amount of protein from whey after my workout would not have given me any benefits compared to the 75 g I got from the eggs, tuna, and milk, right? And if that's the case, is all that stuff about the fast-digesting properties of whey being beneficial all BS?
Any decent pre-workout meal is going to pretty much cancel the urgency for an immediate PWO meal, unless you're training multiple times in a day.
