OK now that you know what to eat before your workout.
Let’s see what’s best after your workout.
Your post workout meal is meant to supply your body with everything it will need to repair and recover the muscle tissue that was broken down during your workout.
Specifically the goal of the post workout meal is to accomplish the following:
Replenish muscle glycogen that was depleted during a workout.
Reduce muscle protein breakdown caused by exercise.
Increase muscle protein synthesis.
Reduce muscle soreness and fatigue.
Enhance overall recovery.
And reduce cortisol levels.
How can you achieve this?
By giving your body the same exact macro nutrients that you did in the pre workout meal!
Carbs and protein.
