From listening to Tara, I learned that in the first thirty minutes after a workout, we do not need protein, we need carbs! Our bodies just depleted our stored carbs. Right after working out, we need to rehydrate and restore our carbs. Then, in a meal about two hours later is when we need our protein. The protein is needed to rebuild and restore muscle after a run. Tara likes the trend of drinking chocolate milk right after a workout because of its perfect ratio of carbs, protein and fat.
|I got some one on one advise from Tara while waiting to meet Tink!|
I am not much of a chocolate milk fan, so I thought about what I will try to eat right after a run. My first though was my Shakeology. I love the stuff, plus it has a good ratio of protein to carbs. Some other options I though of is an apple and a hand full of almonds, a cup of oatmeal, or a Luna Bar.
Do you always eat within 30 minutes of a run? What do you eat? I am looking for ideas!
