Foods To Avoid After A Workout

Aug 30, 2017 Nutrition

Go ahead – pat yourself on the back.  You KILLED it at your workout today.  With the help of your trainer, you did more reps and harder cardio than you ever thought would be possible, and you feel great.  Well, you actually feel exhausted and famished.  In fact, all you can think about as you walk your wobbly legs out to your car is whether or not your arms are too tired to heft a cheeseburger to your mouth.  You can’t wait to eat, and you deserve a treat after your efforts, right?


The truth is, whether or not you deserve a cheat-snack doesn’t matter as much when you consider the impact that your food choices can have on your post-workout body.  Working out doesn’t give you super power-ability to magically be able to eat whatever you want without consequence.  In fact, there are a few definite no-no’s for this important time of recovery.  So read on, hungry one, we’ve got what you need to know, and what NOT to eat.

May 10, 2016 Nutrition

If you've got some time to spare, this article is a MUST read! It outlines the specifics and details that go into maintaining muscle and losing fat simultaneously (something many of us have been striving to achieve). This is EVERYTHING your trainers are trying to teach you; summed up in ONE place for you to read.

There are 5 major keys to follow when trying to do so:

In order to lose body fat, while retaining lean muscle mass, be sure to adhere to these 5 basic principles...

  1. Keep training intensity high. When training for fat loss, there's no need to drastically alter your weight training program. Your first priority is to maintain your strength in the gym.
  2. Eat in a moderate calorie deficit. 500 calories per day will put you on track to lose 1 lb per week.
  3. Get enough protein 1-1.3 grams of protein per lb of LBM is a good starting point.
  4. Maintain a balance of carbohydrates and fats in your diet. Super low fat or low carb rarely makes sense, and you will get much better results with a balance of all macronutrients present.
  5. Avoid excessive amounts of cardio. Use your diet and resistance training as the primary stimulus for achieving the necessary energy deficit.
