TOP 3 TIPS:  How to Eat Post Workout for Amazing Results

    1. Eat the “right” foods within 1 hour of training to restore energy in the muscles
    2. Eat a snack that contains protein & carbs
      • Carbs replenish lost glycogen stores (energy stored in muscles)
      • Protein aids in muscle repair & recovery
      • The snack should be 2:1 ratio of carbs to protein (ex 40g carbs to 20g protein)
    3. Aim for 200 -300 calories for every hour of exercise post workout for amazing results
