- A glass of milk with fresh fruit
- 150 gr 80 gr potato with tuna .
- 1 protein shake with 20 g of oats

Foods you should not eat after your workout
After your training I recommend that you avoid foods high in fat, since they slow down digestion , assimilation of carbohydrates, proteins, and these effects are contrary to what we seek.
When we eat
Ideally, consume food within the hour that follows your fitness training. This is the time when your glycogen stores are depleted completely and enzymes that convert glucose to glycogen , are in a state in which the sugar can be consumed and sent directly to the muscle mass loss replacing glycogen reserve .
Remember also that it is very important to hydrate well as during the practice of any strength training usually plenty of fluids lost through sweat . While you exercise , ideally you moisturize every 10 minutes.
A great trick to do not forget this important food consumed is prepared to leave your post -workout lunch box before leaving home, so when you return, you’ll have your food ready to eat .
