Yesterday we talked about the importance of fueling yourself pre-workout but today we are going to talk about post-workout. SnackItToMe! has many options for post-workout fuel! How you fuel yourself after the workout is just as important as how you fuel yourself pre-workout. It is crucial to fuel yourself properly. If you do not eat soon enough after exercising your muscle starts to feed off of itself, in order to prevent this eat within an hour after working out. By eating healthy, you make your body happy.
Post-Workout Fuel: Fuel with high protein foods to help muscle build such as protein bars, lean meats, and jerky. After a hard workout, try to eat a full meal within an hour but eating protein directly after the workout helps your body from using its own muscle tissue for energy. It is crucial to fuel yourself not only pre-workout but post workout as well.
