THE POST-WORKOUT MEAL DILEMMA
You eat well. You exercise regularly. You are trying to lose weight, get leaner or gain some muscle. Actually, you have just finished a grueling workout at the gym and you’re starving, but by the time you drive home, take a shower and prepare something to eat, at least another hour is going to go by. You think that since your goal is body fat loss, you shouldn’t eat too much, especially since you have just worked so hard to burn off all these unwanted calories. So you just wait until your next meal, right? WRONG!
So many exercisers are faced with this dilemma: should I eat something right after the workout? Should I have regular food or a shake? If yes, what kind of shake? When exactly should I have it? The supplement industry has been trying to sell us all sorts of various formulas for muscle growth, fat loss, weight loss, etc. for years. Is it just the money or are these potions actually backed up by solid scientific research?
