The Postworkout Snack

Fitastic April 4, 2013

Post workout meals must include two things: fast-digesting protein and fast-digesting carbs.  The former powers its way to your muscles to aid in the process of building them up, and the latter boosts insulin levels to help that protein get into muscle cells.

We recommend whey protein after training because it digests quickly and is speedily sent to muscle cells.  However, we’ve added soy protein when consumed, shows less muscle damage after working out than those who consume whey. In short, soy’s antioxidants appear to improve recovery post workout.
