4 Post Workout Foods You Should Be Eating

Post Workout Foods and Why 

1. Protein:  Try to incorporate 20-40g of protein 30-60 min post workout. Fast digesting protein (isolate) or a whole food source like chicken, turkey, salmon, shrimp, eggs etc. Some studies have shown that having protein powder post workout is beneficial because it takes away a lot of the digesting process of a whole food. Allowing your tired body to digest quickly can initiate faster recovery.

 

2. Carbs: Your body has used up almost all of its glycogen storage. Don’t just have protein post workout and forget about the carbs. Aim for a min of 30g of carbs 30-60m post workout. You can also use fast digesting carb powder like vitargo or karbolyn. Or you can use whole food sources like sweet potato, rice, quinoa, oats etc.

I wholeheartedly agree with his statement of “to achieve what is promoted in the main stream media (having a six pack), will take a great amount of commitment and sacrifice,” (sacrificing the foods you “want” for the ones you “need”, and staying committed to the goal you set for yourself).
