This week's Whole Life Challenge Weekly Lifestyle Challenge is to eat some protein and carbohydrates within 30 minutes of completing your workout. Post-workout nutrition is very important as this is the time (between 30 mins - 1 hour) when your body is most receptive to utilizing carbohydrates and protein to replenish your reduced glycogen stores, decrease protein breakdown and increase protein synthesis (to repair muscles).
Benefits of post-workout nutrition include improved recovery, decreased muscle soreness, increased ability to build muscle, improved immune function, improved one mass and improved ability to utilize body fat.
Many people have difficulty eating whole foods for their post-workout nutrition meal and find shakes, drinks, or slurries easier to consume. We have several products available, SFH Recovery shakes and Fuel for Fire pouches, that meet our high standards of whole foods and give you the protein and carbohydrates your body needs.
The post-workout meal is meant to be low calories (less than 200) and does not replace your next regular meal. It is in addition to your regular daily meals.
