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.
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.
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.
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.
Protein synthesis promotes muscle growth, muscle repair, and muscle recovery, to prevent further muscle breakdown caused by your workout.
Remember, since your goal is weight loss, it’s also super important to do whatever you can to maintain muscle while in a calorie deficit.
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 workout, your body can be depleted of water, therefore it’s important to drink lots of water after your workouts.
This post workout shake can help increase your water consumption.
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.
