An intense workout can give you your dream body, but it doesn’t give you license to eat whatever you want right after. Avoid these 4 foods to stay fit.
You just had an intense workout session and you’re feeling pretty good about your workout.
You’ve already justified in your mind that you can have a cheat food.
After all, you earned it.
To get the most benefit out of your workout, it’s vital to replenish calories and nutrients with the right combination of protein and carbs.
The foods you want to avoid are ones that are high in fat and sugars.
You’ll be able to achieve your fitness goals much faster if you avoid these 4 foods below.
Physique Food Killer #1 Vegetables
I know what you are thinking, don’t eat vegetables? Are you kidding me!
Vegetables are not bad for you but in order to build muscle you need calories.
Vegetables are one of those foods that virtually have no or very low caloric substance and does nothing to build muscle.
These minimal calorie foods just aren’t good enough to help you restore energy and maintain a healthy metabolic rate
Your goal is to build lean muscle so you do not want to fill up on vegetables leaving no room for protein and carbohydrates.
Save your vegetables at dinner time and keep to a minimum.
Physique Food Killer #2 Milk Chocolate
Scarfing down your favorite candy bar does nothing but wreck havoc on your physique goals.
Dark chocolate (at least 70% cacao), however, has healthy antioxidants that fight free radicals and act as anti-inflammatories, which can help you recover post-workout.
Physique Food Killer #3 High Fat Foods
High fat foods such as pizza, hamburgers, hotdogs, etc slows down digestion, which is the exact opposite of what you want to happen after working out.
The goal after exercise is to replenish your body with the essential amino acids and reduce, not add to, the amount of fat your body stores.
Physique Food Killer #4 Soda
Drinking sugary drinks after a workout is counterproductive for anyone seeking to lose weight, due to the slowing down your metabolism.
I always suggest that you drink 10 grams BCAA’s (Branch Chain Amino Acids) during your workout.
After a workout it’s best to reach for something that has electrolytes combined with 10 more grams BCAA’s.
