Yesterday’s Postworkout [swipe]
1️⃣. Protein: not Shown was my @nutrithority Isothority whey protein shake that I’ve been having immediately after every workout for years now. I take a shaker with 1 scoop in it with me to the gym, fill it up at the water fountain on the way out the door, and drink it on the way home.
2️⃣. Carbs: One serving of strawberries, one serving of halo top ice cream, and 1 fiber one brownie 🤤
THIS is flexible dieting at its finest 🏼♀️
Micros, fiber & ice cream all in the same picture 🏼 #balance
Postworkout is the best time to have sugars because doing so can actually work to your advantage...
During a weight training session the body breaks down muscle tissue that needs to be restored promptly so it can grow (aka how to get toned). Sugars being quick digesting, will actually be stored in your muscles for later use (if had at this time) therefor they won’t just rush through your body with no value (just make to have that whey protein shake too). “Stored for later use” meaning energy for your next workout.
3️⃣. Fats: I keep these minimal postworkout, and NOT bc “eating fat will make me fat” 🏼♀️ #false
But bc fats are very slooooowww digesting...and as mentioned above, we want something that will get into our system quickly to begin the muscle tissue restoring & growing process.
This is just once example of some “fun” carbs I like to have for postworkout, but get creative with it. I tend to make this meal my “treat” for the day, and fill the rest of my meals up with things like turkey, ground beef, eggs, brussel sprouts, butternut squash, whole wheat/high fiber wraps, cheese, potatoes, rice, apples, pb, and of course...wine
What type of postworkout carbs are your favorite?? I’ve been in the mood to switch things up lately so ideas please 🏼
