Transcripts - Preventing Poor Eating After a Workout

  • 1.  CrossFit Norwalk provides challenging exercise classes and a supportive environment in which every person is encouraged to do their best. Whether they are advanced exercisers or just getting started, everyone is welcome at CrossFit Norwalk. There are many reasons why you might decide to start a challenging strength and fitness regimen. However, whether that reason is to lose weight, to become stronger, or some other goal, it is important that you follow good nutritional practices along with your workout program. This includes eating well after your workout is over--a time when many feel tempted to overeat or eat the wrong types of foods.
  • 2.  You might consider eating something an hour before your workout, as this can help you avoid feeling ravenously hungry when your workout is completed. Then, when you are done with your workout, have some water. Not only can drinking water take an edge off your hunger, but it rehydrates the body, a factor that is especially important after sweating away a lot of fluids. Since your body expended a lot of energy in the workout, it is important to have a post-workout snack. It is often recommended that this snack have a carbohydrate-to-protein ratio of 4:1. This helps rebuild energy levels and repair muscles.
