What’s the best way to recover from that tough workout in the gym, long run or strenuous cardio session? If you’re a woman, your recovery needs are a little different than a man’s. The most beneficial thing you can do for your body is to plan and consume an optimal post-workout meal. It may just be the most important meal you eat all day.
The perfect post-workout shake should replenish depleted nutrients, boost recovery related hormones, and set the stage for a better workout tomorrow. This Cinnamon Roll Protein Shake is a delicious way to deliver quality protein, carbohydrates and important micro-nutrients to your muscles for improved recovery and performance.
Dieting sucks. The hunger, loss of energy and brain fog that comes with following a strict nutrition program cause many people to fall off the wagon.
What if you could solve all of the problems that arise from dieting, or at least negate the nasty side effects? With smart supplementation, you can painlessly follow your diet without compromising your mood, social life or job (if you are having a really bad day). Enter the “Undiet Shake.” This specific blend of nutrients helps address each symptom that makes dieting painful.
When I heard Vitacost® was launching a new sports nutrition line, I couldn’t have been more excited. From my experience with other Vitacost-brand products, I knew it would be top quality—and that it would be priced right. After trying several products, I can honestly say my hunches were right on. Whether you’re a woman or a man, a hardcore bodybuilder or someone just looking to get or stay fit, Vitacost® ARO™ products are a smart choice that you’re going to absolutely love.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And it is. But your post-workout meal is a close second. After a grueling workout, your body needs fuel fast to avoid succumbing to a catabolic state. When you’re exercising or when you haven’t eaten for an extended period of time, your body goes into a catabolic state. This means it begins to break down muscle – not exactly ideal when you’re trying to build that hard-earned definition. Instead, you want to keep your body in an anabolic state, or in “repair mode.”
Are you usually dragging your feet by mid-morning? Skip your usual breakfast and instead, start your day with one of these amazingly delicious energizing smoothies – then tackle your to-do list with ease!
