Eating after exercising? Won't that accelerate my absorption and make me fat easier?
Not at all! Many people are worried about the increase in food absorption in their bodies after training which might accumulate more fat once we eat. There are even people who consider the hard-burned calories will come to naught once they eat. The truth is regardless of what you wish - to gain weight, to increase muscles or to be healthy, as long as you follow smartly the golden timing for eating, which will be 30 minutes to 1 hour after exercising, you can help your body restore energy quickly and double the desired effects. If you do not eat after training, it will act on your body as if you are fasting which might give you weariness the next day and prevent you from being focus, your muscle pain will also recover slower. The higher intensity you exercised, the more obvious the discomfort you feel physically.
Protein Supplement Helps Recover the Damaged Muscles.
The importance of protein lies in the ability to repair and regenerate the muscle tissue which is damaged during exercises. Appropriate amount of protein can improve the muscle quality as well as the function, it is even helpful for reducing body fat.
What are the best foods to eat after exercises?
We suggest you to choose lean protein and natural carbohydrate food cooked with methods required only very little oil, such as steaming or grilling. Skinned chicken legs, chicken breasts, sugar-free soybean milk, sugar-free yogurt, low-fat milk, grilled vegetables and apples are good choices. Eating after exercises should take the "appropriate amount to satisfy your hunger" as the principle. If it is meal time, you may have a full meal. But you do not need to force yourself to eat if you are not hungry. If you do not have time to prepare, a convenience store is a good choice as well. You can choose low-sugar soybean milk, tea-boiled eggs, cucumbers and skim milk.
The following are examples of different food categories:
Sugar-free soybean milk
Milk & Eggs
