Nutrition and exercise go hand in hand. Fitness cannot be fully achieved unless both pieces are working together. Nutrition includes anything that your body ingests, including fitness drinks. Protein drinks are very popular among exercise communities, they are a great way to jump start the recovery process after exercise. Getting into this habit can be very useful when executed in a manner that is consistent with how foods are consumed during the time exercise is not happening (i.e. the rest of the day). We consider a protein drink to be part of a recovery “snack” that the body can use immediately after completion of a workout, but the protein drink is only one part of this post-workout snack. We encourage that you pair a whole fruit and a few nuts along with your post-workout protein drink. The protein will start to repair your muscles, and the carbohydrate and fat will help replenish your energy levels.
1 scoop of your favorite protein powder
1 large apple/banana/grapefruit/orange (etc.)
1 small handful of your favorite nut
Stay consistent in this habit for a few weeks and let us know how you are feeling in the comments!
