Refuel & Replenish

April 25, 2016

What do you typically reach for after working out?  I’ve long wondered what the absolute best foods are to reach for after a workout, to truly refuel and replenish my system. What is my body craving after I’ve done hot yoga, boot camp, or an epic hike? What does it need to feel and function its absolute best?

4 Rules Post Workout

Eat within 30 to 60 minutes after exercise: Post-exercise foods are all about putting back what you’ve lost and providing the raw materials needed for repair and healing.

Post Workout Nutrition: Protein is a building block of muscle, you should also include good fat, as well as plenty of nutrient-rich source of carbohydrates.

Rehydrate: Post-exercise, aim for two cups of water (16 ounces) for every pound of body weight.

Keep it Simple & Small: If losing weight is one of your goals it’s vital to not overestimate how much extra food you “earned” working out. It’s unbelievably easy to “eat back” all of what you’ve burned. Keep you post workout under 300 calories.
