Lean and Green Post Workout Shake For Weight Loss

Today I want to share a quick and simple video recipe that is an excellent post workout shake for weight loss.

This is a perfect post workout shake for people looking to maintain lean muscle while in a calorie deficit.

I call it the superpowered Lean and Green post workout shake for weight loss.

But before I share the recipe, let me explain why the nutrients in this shake will help with weight loss.

  • High in protein and essential amino acids
  • Lower in calories and carbohydrates

A post workout shake low in carbs…say what?

Now I know you’ve probably heard me say carbohydrates post workout are in a good thing, and in most cases it is.

Especially when you’re already lean and looking to build muscle.

If that’s you, this post-workout shake recipe is NOT for you.

This one is better suited for your muscle building goals.

So the difference with this post workout shake is that it’s designed specifically for overweight people who are following a low carb fat loss diet.

But here’s a shocker

When you’re overweight and your goal is fat loss, carbohydrates are not as essential after your workout.

The reason is with all that extra stored body fat, your glycogen levels are probably close to or already at capacity.

When you have a fat loss goal, it’s important to keep sugar consumption lower as you want to turn your body into a fat burning machine.

This means you want to burn stored fat for energy, not sugar.

However, with all this said, it’s still very important to take a protein shake after your workout.

Your post workout shake for weight loss should contain key nutrients to:

This is key because maintaining lean muscle is critical in building a fast and healthy metabolism.

Focus on losing weight from stored body fat, not weight from lean muscle.

The nutrients in:

Will help build and maintain lean calorie crushing muscle while burning off the stored body fat.

After a tough workout your body is like a sponge that is looking to suck up a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants to help speed up recovery.

With all that said, here’s the recipe.
