Suddenly? Raw vegetables have always been and are considered healthy and wholesome food, but this is not something that the body really needs after a serious workout. Raw vegetables are low in calories and your body needs to recharge. Vegetables with protein snacks and yogurt are a much better option.
Delicious, fast, convenient. However, it is better not to stare at pizza after a workout, because even one slice of pizza has a huge amount of calories that are unlikely to be useful. Treating yourself to a pizza after finishing a series of cardio or strength training will simply negate all your calorie-burning efforts. In addition, meat and cheese are digested rather slowly, you will not immediately feel the feeling of fullness and, most likely, you will eat more than you should.
It seems like a completely harmless snack, but the fact is that potato chips contain too much salt. High levels of salt (sodium chloride) slow down the body’s absorption of potassium, which can lead to fatigue. If you’re looking for a post-workout energy boost, it’s best to set aside a snack with a packet of potato chips for a couple of hours.
4. Soft drinks
A cool and pleasant-tasting drink is something that happens to be persistently asked for in your hands after a workout. However, a sweet, especially carbonated, drink is not the most suitable product. Most of these drinks contain too many sweeteners, flavors, colors, and other chemicals. Water is ideal both during and after exercise. Another healthy alternative is a glass of low-fat milk or a drink with a balanced protein and carbohydrate content.
Who, after strenuous strength training, has not dreamed of a big hamburger, a serving of fries or fried chicken? Yes, such fried foods can quickly replenish energy reserves, but at the same time add a lot of unnecessary calories. Ate a hot dog after a workout: Consider no workout. So, when leaving the gym, stay away from fried chicken and pits with a generous layer of mayonnaise and chicken in batter.
