The primary goals of your post-workout meal are to:
- calm the nervous system AKA stress response from training
- get into a parasympathetic state (rest and digest mode)
- kick start the recovery process
- stimulate protein synthesis (making new proteins) and avoid a catabolic state (break down)
I get this question ALL the time:
How much protein should I be eating?
Well, the cool thing about protein is that no matter what 'type of diet' you are following (unless it's a low-protein diet which I personally wouldn't recommend to anyone unless there was a certain medical reason for it),...
I’ve been incorporating more ‘carb-ups’ and more of a targeted ketogenic diet (TKD) approach lately and my body is lovin’ it! Remember, Keto is a metabolic state NOT a food.
Carbs are not essential but they most definitely can (and in some cases SHOULD) be used...
