Working out is part of getting healthy, staying fit and most importantly, losing your first 10 pounds! After working out at the gym, your after workout meal is by far one of the most important of them all!

Here’s why…

When you workout, using one of the many workouts I recommend, your body reaches an ideal state to utilize any food that you feed it.

Which basically means…

When you feed your body the right foods after you complete your workout, the nutrients will be used in the most effective manner to repair your muscles that you tore down during the workout while you also continue to burn calories.

When I was on my journey to losing 52 pounds of fat from my body, I always made sure when I was done working out, I chose the right foods/protein shake that would fuel my body with the necessary nutrients so that it could recover quickly before my next workout.

Here are a few guidelines you can follow that I used to create the perfect after workout meal to maximize the “window of opportunity” (30-60 minutes after workout).

1) If you are going to make yourself a protein shake, be sure that you are only using whey protein, and be sure to add some fruit to it as well.

Here’s why…

Whey protein is the best protein and hits the blood stream in as little as 20-30 minutes, while the fruit helps you fill your glycogen stores in the fastest way possible.

2) If you are going to make yourself a meal, be sure that you select a healthy, lean protein and a carbohydrate no matter what!

Here’s why…

Your body needs both nutrients especially after working out hard to repair muscle tissue and fill up your glycogen stores exhausted during your workout.

3) Because fat slows down digestion, be sure that your meal includes the least amount of fat as possible, if you decide to eat a meal rather than drink a protein shake.

Here’s why…

If you slow down digestion, it will slow down the process of how fast your body will use the nutrients to repair muscles and fill the glycogen stores. You definitely don’t want that to happen!

So that’s it!

Easy right?

If you have any questions about what will work the best for you, send me a message, and I will get back to you as fast as I can!
