Of all the bad habits that sabotage healthy-eating efforts, mindless snacking is one of the worst. International fitness model and author Jennifer Nicole Lee offers an easy tip to help curb late-night munchies so your diet stays on track.
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.”

One of the things I love best about summer is the availability of fresh fruit. It’s a great addition to my protein shakes, making them light and refreshing.

I also add a scoop Vitacost BCAAs, which has added L-glutamine and vitamin C.
Here are some of my favorite shake recipes. Enjoy!
