Welcome to Week 41 of the Frumpy to Fabulous this week’s habit change is to consume pre and post workout meals.

Right after your workout your body is the weakest so you need to give your body the proper nutrients.

pre-workout

eat whole grains,proteins and good fats that will give you energy for your workout. These can be consumed 1-2 hours prior to exercise

here are some ideas:

  • protein pancake with berries
  • greek yogurt with berries & nuts
  • granola bar
  • oatmeal & egg whites

post workout

limit fats in your post workout meal they slow the adsorption of protein to your muscles

you need to eat a fast digesting protein and carbohydrate

  • 8 ounces of skim chocolate milk
  • greek yogurt with fruit
  • protein shake with berries
