It’s been said time and again – you don’t get bigger and stronger during your workout. It’s after the workout when you’re resting that you recover and make gains. So post-workout nutrition becomes a prime factor in making sure you get the desired results from your workout.
You may have heard the following rumors about post-workout nutrition:
- You MUST eat food or drink a shake as fast as possible after working out
- If you miss your post-workout meal, the “anabolic window” closes up and your workout will be wasted
- You need lots of carbs post-workout to spike insulin
- Eating whole food is just as good as drinking a protein shake
