Diet is one of the keys elements towards building a perfect body; therefore it should be well planned out in advance. Nutrition is an essential component of fitness. In addition to providing the fuel to lift weight, food also provides the body with energy for the necessary growth and repair. While you should keep your goals in mind every time you sit down to chow down, some meals are more important than others.
This is not about breakfast but rather the recovery meal after your workout. “So many women skip post-exercise nutrition because they don’t want to ‘undo the calories they just burned,’” says Amanda Carlson-Phillips, vice president of nutrition and research for Athletes’ Performance and Core Performance. “But getting a combination of 10 to 15 grams of protein and 20 to 30 grams of carbohydrates within 30 minutes of your workout will help to refuel your body, promote muscle recovery, amp up your energy, and build a leaner physique.”
