#Nutrition #tip of the #day
The benefits of refueling after a workout are very important. There has been so many times that I have heard people talk about not eating or only drinking a shake after a hard workout.
The truth about refueling is, once you have broken your muscles down after a hard workout, the muscles need to be refilled with the correct amounts of protein and electrolytes. This will help aid in rejuvenating the muscle to help reduce stiffness, soreness, and will also help in keeping the muscle healthy. The refueling time period also helps in growing nice lean muscles while reducing injury to the muscle. A lot of people experience muscle strains and pulls due to having a poor diet and not consuming the correct amount of protein and carbs to keep the muscle healthy. So as we put more demand on the muscle, over time, it becomes weak and eventually strained.
Protein shakes are an alternative, but should #NEVER replace the nutrients of clean, fresh food. I consume protein shakes when there is a time restraint or I am unable to get the proper nutrients from food within a certain time frame (45min-hour following a workout). Often times protein shakes carry to many additives that cooked food do not carry. You have to remember, protein companies are in the business to make money. So with that being said, they will hide behind the key phrase “Proprietary Blend” in there supplements which could be anything. A lot of them claim to have 0 sugar added. So you must ask yourself: What the hell is making it taste good and sweet? I’ll let you do the math.
