Momma Fit Podcast Episode #26: What To Eat Pre-and-Post Workout

by_dayna_deters

We all know that what you eat is important. But what about when you eat? Especially if you’re active?

You will learn in this episode that there’s no perfect pre-and-post-training feeding regimen for everyone.

Remember, that everyone is different, every BODY is different and we all are chasing a different goal. 

So just remember that we should set our goals to not compare other but that will be eat based on our specific goals. 

The protein, carbohydrate, fat, and fluid requirements for a 150 lb. endurance athlete in the midst of marathon training vs. a 230 lb. bodybuilder recovering from a heavy resistance-training session are quite different.

Times of your training year will also dictate different needs in the post-exercise recovery period. That same bodybuilder will need a different approach when he starts to diet in preparation for a contest.

For most of us, people without athletic competitions on the horizon, the best pre- and post-training meals will contain some combination of high quality protein, high quality carbohydrates, healthy fats, and some fruit and vegetables.

Listen, the health and fitness world can sometimes be a confusing place, especially when it comes to nutrition. But it doesn’t have to be a confusing place, especially when it comes to nutrition. But it doesn’t have to be! 

Let me help you make sense of it all with this, and listen to today’s episode.
