I'm a boxer and I'm trying to cut a little weight while getting enough calories (of the right sort) to be able to train every day (3x high intensity and 3x medium intensity workouts per week). I try to go easy on carbs.
Example: I'm having whole grain pasta with veggie sauce and some tofu for protein for lunch. Is it OK to put some grated cheese on top? I'm not so worried about calories here because I still need more than the average person. I'm asking because I found that the combination takes me much longer to digest (much more than 2 hours). I still feel full after 2.5 hours and have to burp when I run. On the other hand a post workout shake with two tablespoons of oats and one tablespoon of peanut putter in it feels like it's digested in no time. Is that just me or is this normal? What else should I keep in mind?
