Eat This Right After your Workout and Lose (a LOT) More Fat

The holy grail question: What do I eat to lose fat?

or even better…

What should my post workout food look like to lose fat faster.

If you’re at all interested in fitness, losing fat, building lean muscle, and feeling good you’ve thought through that question before and it’s probably left you a little bit stumped.

I don’t blame you, selling supplements is a B-b-b-b-b-billion dollar industry, which means advertisers battle to get your attention and sell you their products over someone else’s even if they aren’t what you need. Sneaky sneaky!

The position of strength I want to share with you is this – for a supplement to pass muster for me it’s got to be backed scientifically AND through real world results. Can’t just have one.

Results and science

Let’s go all in and figure this out together.

If you prefer a video here’s the youtube:

From personal experience, a liquid recovery drink is a lot easier to stomach than a bar or something after a hard workout. Science tells us that it’s also quicker to take in, so that it gets in your system faster.

In the drink you’re going to need three things

Protein – Carbs – Electrolytes 

Protein… improves muscle synthesis (new muscle), recovery, reduces soreness, decreases muscle loss, enhances glycogen resynthesis (puts energy back into the muscle), builds the immune system, increases the use of body fat until and during your next training session.

Carbs and electrolytes help you return to a hydrated state, help you pee, and helps with recovery.

A ratio of 15 – 20 grams of protein and 20 – 30 grams of carbohydrate is best.

Now that doesn’t translate to the real world super well, so here’s what you do.

If you have Momentum Whey it’s got 20 grams of protein and 4 grams of carbohydrate. Good on protein, not so good on carbs… So mix it up with coconut beverage (it’s like coconut milk but more liquidy), I like Trader Joe’s brand.

You can use milk there, but that’s a lot of dairy and might mess with your tummy.

Fruit will also work if you preblend it before you leave the house.

If you have a vegetarian protein like the one we have, it has around 13 grams of protein and 20 grams of carbs. What you can do with that is do a scoop and a half and it lands you at the perfect ratio.

Most likely you’re short on time, so you’re going to want some..

Time hacks!

  1. Pre mix/blend the night before and refrigerate
  2. Make it right when you wake up, sip it during your workout and finish it after
  3. put the powder mixture into a bunch of baggies so you can run out the door with one
  4. During the not so hot months store your protein in your car for easy access.

No, No’s!

  1. Don’t skip out on it because you’re going to eat soon, you need something within 15 minutes
  2. Don’t get the massive bulk bags, they’re cheap but really low quality and not so good for your health
  3. Premixing for the entire week sounds good, but the stuff doesn’t keep well

The most important part is getting started, so if you want to optimize your fat loss, lean muscle gain, and feel good faster just get going!
