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 🙂
