Should i carry on drinking the shake i currently use or not? and Do you know of any good nutrition books i could purchase?
i hear what you say about making weight but with extra calorie intake means you have more energy to exercise at a higher intensity which ultimately could lead to a lower body fat % which will make making weight easier, yeah cut out the caffeine before training on pads bags sparring or anything that involves a recovery period, caffeine before a long distance run can be helpful
Anita Beans - Complete guide to sports nutrition is a good start its not too technical and covers everything, i had the 4th edition when i done my personal training course there might be a newer edition out now
about your shake mate its up to you i would recommend something with slightly more carbs but its totally up to you, straight after my training at the club i take carb protein mix , 50 g carbs and about 25 grams protein
