Are struggling to figure out what to eat after a workout and avoid the bonk? The short answer is to take in some fast digesting carbs along with a high quality protein after a tough workout.  The carbs will save your body’s own energy source and the protein encourages muscle growth and repair.  Your overall diet plays a huge roll in your success but your post workout meal does play a huge roll.

3 Big Reasons To Have A Great Post Workout Meal With A High Quality Protein

  1. Stabilizes Your Blood Sugar – Post-workout your body has lower levels of blood sugar.  Eating a high quality source of protein after a workout is effective because it gets digested and metabolized more slowly, helping to stabilize your blood sugar so you don’t hungry or bonk.
  2. Reduces Inflammation – Cortisol is a muscle-wasting stress hormone that causes inflammation.  If you eat protein insulin is released to help shuttle protein into your muscles.  By increasing insulin levels you will effectively reduce your levels of cortisol.
  3. Rebuilds Muscle – A great workout breaks down and tears your muscle fibers.  We do that so they can grow back bigger and stronger.  Protein is the main player in repairing those micro tears in your muscles.  Post workout your body is craving protein so it can get to work.
