NEVER Eat These Post-Workout Foods

You should aim to eat quality calories to fuel your workouts and build fat burning muscle mass. What you eat really matters. Junk food like chips, pastries, candy, donuts and sodas aren't nutritious and have loads of calories. They also have you wanting to eat more in just a short time. Control your eating with a sound nutrition plan.


Hopefully, your nutrition plan includes protein with every meal. You don't need to do protein shakes...just eat the right foods. Research has proven that protein keeps blood sugar levels more steady and helps you feel fuller for a longer period (slower digestion). Protein also keeps the hunger hormone (ghrelin) in check so your hunger doesn't spike so high.

What about eating for your workouts? Did you know you need to eat within 45 minutes to feed your muscles after a tough weight training workout? Do you know what you should eat before and after your workout?

Post-workout nutrition is important to help your body recover from intense exercise (especially weight training). You don't need to eat immediately after your workout but there is a 45-minute window where replenishing your body's fuel will optimize your tissue's repair and growth. And, it will help you recover and get ready for your next workout.

You have to eat enough of the right foods (all the time) for your body to work properly---whether exercising, working, walking or just plain living.

How much do you eat? Research shows that people will underestimate the amount of calories they eat.

According to the True Results Health Honesty Survey, 46 percent of those surveyed are not honest with family members and 32 percent admit to lying to doctors. True Results is a team of leading weight loss experts based in Texas.

"Lying about your health and fitness, if even only a few times per year, can signify a fundamental issue in your ability to achieve your health goals," said Jessica Diaz, nutritionist and exercise physiologist for True Results. "Numerous studies have shown, the key to achieving any health or fitness goal is support from those around you and that cannot happen if you're not honest with yourself or others."
