Do you want to build muscle quicker and burn fat faster?
Of course you do.
Well I have to ask, what is your post-workout meal? Do you even have a post-workout meal?
This is one of the most important meals for people who are living the lean lifestyle. Why? Because when you workout, you’re physically tearing your muscles apart. This depletes your muscles of energy (in the form of muscle glycogen) and puts your body in a catabolic state (causing muscle loss).
It’s up to you to hit that switch to turn your body into anabolic mode. This simply means your body goes into growth mode. As you know, it’s super super super (yep 3 x supers) important to maintain muscle at all costs. Building muscle keeps you younger, longer, and revs up your metabolism, allowing you to burn fat faster.
It’s simple. EAT!
Your post-workout meal should be comprised of:
1. a fast digesting protein source
2.a fast digesting carbohydrate source
The sugar from the fast digesting carb source will quickly replenish your muscle glycogen and help shuttle the protein to your muscles faster for optimal muscle rebuilding and recovery.
