Post-Workout Meal… what’s the deal with that?!

Ok so here’s the 411 on post-workout meals: THEY ARE VERY IMPORTANT!!!

If you are serious about seeing results & already put in the effort by working out regularly and eating clean..then make sure you are feeding your body properly once you’ve finished killing it at the gym.

Your post-workout meal will depend on your goals..whether you are aiming for fatloss or building serious muscle.

The aim of a post-workout meal is to replenish your body’s energy stores and repair muscle tissue. After a good iron pumping session your muscles are depleted of nutrients..especially carbs & electrolytes (potassium). A good post-workout meal will be high in protein (this helps repair your muscle tissue) and carbs (replenishes energy stores).

Here is my post-workout meal..I must admit that I look forward to it 🙂

  • 1 scoop of Diesal Protein- chocolate= 107 calories; 26g protein; 0.5g carbs; 0.5g sugar
  • 1 scoop of Mutant Rehab- mixed berries= 145 calories; 9g protein; 27g carbs; 0g sugar
  • 2 rice cakes- original= 70 calories; 2g protein; 14g carbs; 0g sugar
