Once you have finished a cardio session, you’ll need to consume mainly carbohydrates, preferably those with high fiber. Rice, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, and northern fruits are excellent sources. Also, try to consume 30 – 50 grams of there types of carbs after you exercise. After your cardio workout, it is fine to eat within 5 – 10 minutes.
Yarn, While High In Fiber Is Not Recommended Snacking After A Workout!
Once you’ve finished up a resistance session, you will need to eat a combination of carbs and protein. Unlike cardio workouts, resistance workouts will break down muscle tissue by creating micro tears.
You’ll need protein as this happens to build and repair these tears so that the muscle can increase in size and strength. The carbs will not only replace the lost muscle glycogen, but will also help the protein get into muscle cells so it can synthesize into structural protein, or the muscle itself.
After your resistance exercise, you should wait up to 30 minutes before you eat, so that you won’t take blood away from your muscles too fast. The blood in your muscles will help the repair process by removing the metabolic waste products.
Never lie down or stop moving completely immediately following any type of workout, you should have a cooling off period where you walk or bicycle for a few minutes at a slow pace. This helps get oxygen back into your muscles and pull the waste products out. If you notice cramping after a workout, it is usually because your muscles are starving for oxygen.
Toxins in your blood stream are begging to be carted away! They accumulate in your liver and in your intestines, and actually keep your body from getting proper nutrition. Many physicians and nutritionists have recommended detoxing your body with a colon cleanse followed by a liver purification.
