After you are done working out, you want to replenish your body and get it back into an anabolic state (growth state). You just used up your energy stores in your cells and you actually need to replenish them with a ratio of carbs to protein of about 3-4 to 1 within 30 minutes.
What should I be eating then?
Great question, here are a few examples.
- Grab a chocolate milk, 1 cup is equal to 26 grams of carbs and 8 grams of protein.
- Banana and 1 hard boiled egg.
- Post-workout shake.
