Want to know which foods and beverages will ruin all your efforts? Here’s a list of forbidden foods and beverages after workout. It might shock you.
Let’s face it. It’s not a rocket science. After your workout you need a meal. A high-quality meal with which you will support your body, compensate lost nutrition you literally burned during your workout and will bring back the essential energy.
Who doesn’t love shakes?
Please avoid shakes. Proteins shakes can be tricky. They CAN refuel your body after your workout, besides who doesn’t love them? They are absolutely amazing! But not all protein shakes have the same ingredients. Many contain hidden sugar, artificial flavor and color, which means you calorie intake will drastically increase after drinking it.
So be careful about the ingredients; it’s best if you choose natural protein powder. To sweeten use blueberries, strawberries or almond milk.
Energy bars: sweet bomb
Energy bars are almost the same as protein shakes. Check the ingredients as many have artificial colors, sugar etc. Many are best sellers and lower price so don’t get carried away.
Instead of energy bar pamper yourself with banana or blueberries and peanuts.
Food with low carbohydrates
Carbohydrates are as essential as proteins, so do not neglect them. After your workout give your body a nice portion of glycogen in a form of strawberries, bananas, kiwi, blueberries etc. If you’re not a fruity lover, try and choose healthy carbohydrates - and not white bread, pasta etc.
Keep away from isotonic drinks
It’s mostly just marketing. Well, not in every case, if you are a professional athlete or are constantly training, drinking isotonic is OK. Other than that, these drinks have a high portion of sugar, artificial sweetnesses.
Rather than that drink water with lemon or coconut water.
Salty and processed food
During workout you lose a lot of salt, water and potassium. That’s why you taste so salty after. Instead of eating a bag of chips eat a banana. This sexy fruit has a lot of potassium.
