Recovery Time Required
Recovery after exercise is just as important as exercise itself. Refuel your muscles by grabbing a snack or drink with 4 grams of carbohydrates to every 1 gram of protein.
Even if you’re trying to lose weight, not replenishing your muscles’ glycogen stores will leave you low on energy and could impact your next workout.
Recover from your workouts with a healthy snack this week. Try half a whole wheat bagel, a banana, peanut butter, whole wheat crackers with yogurt, nuts or dried fruit. Aim to eat about 200 calories of these foods within 2 hours of exercising.
