Whether or not you choose to eat before working out, make some wise foods choices after exercising. Protein is necessary to rebuild muscles, while carbs will re-stock glycogen, or energy stores, in your muscles. Eating within 15 to 30 minutes post-workout is ideal, but if this isn’t possible, aim for within 60 minutes.
It's best to have a plan for what you are going to eat post-workout and whole foods are best but sometimes a busy day gets away from us. When that happens, we've got you covered. Stop by the desk for a protein bar or a drink to sustain you. While you're in stock up on a protein powder to help power your recovery and maximize your results.
