What’s the biggest mistake guys make after working out? We don’t drink a post-workout shake! You have at least an hour window to regenerate the body’s flow of nutrients and there’s nothing else better than a blended mix of proteins and carbs.
Got protein synthesis? Dowdell and Brooke Kalanick, naturophatic doctor, recommends this shake that will get your muscles everything they need.
1 scoop whey protein (Remember: Men say NO to soy. Keep your manhood intact).
1/2 cup frozen berries
1 teaspoon unsweetened organic cocoa powder
1 cup water or 1/2 cup water & 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla or chocolate almond milkCombine all ingredients in a blender until smooth and cheers!
No blender or just not a smoothie guy? Forget the protein bar (loaded with crap), go for the good stuff, lean protein, chicken. Whether its chicken or fish, keep it low, low in fat that is! Not only keeping the lbs. off, but lipids slow the insulin response that gets protein to your muscles. Your body is your temple, while you maximize efforts at the gym, don’t forget to maximize efforts to your diet as well! Namaste!
