What Is The Best Post Workout Meal?
Run a search online and you’ll find no end to the number of different post workout nutrition protocols recommended by various “experts” to help you maximize your muscle size and strength gains.
It’s often referred to as the “anabolic window” where the specific foods and supplements you consume are of particular importance.
But what is the best post workout meal? Is there really such a thing as the “perfect” post workout food?
Although it goes against traditional advice, the reality is that pre and post workout nutrition really aren’t anywhere near as crucial as most people think.
Keep in mind that nutrient digestion and absorption happens at a very slow, gradual pace, and because of that, the nutrients from your pre workout meal are actually still being broken down and absorbed even after your workout is over.
For that reason, immediately slamming a post workout shake in order to take advantage of the “anabolic window” really just isn’t necessary. Most people have the false idea that they need to consume post workout protein and post workout carbs within 30-60 minutes of their workout, but this simply isn’t the case.
So, what are the best foods to eat after a workout? Ultimately, the best post workout meal is simply any basic combination of protein and carbohydrates consumed within a couple hours of completing your session. Analyzing what to eat after a workout beyond this is really just a waste of your effort.
If you do prefer to have a standard post workout shake that’s totally fine, but if you’d rather just have a smaller post workout snack or a large post workout meal, that’s completely fine too. In the end it just comes down to personal preference.
