Eighty percent of what you see in the mirror is based off your nutritional habits. Working out will trigger anabolic responses in your body responsible for muscle growth, and proper post-workout nutrition can accelerate muscle recovery and new muscle growth.
After your workout, you should be consuming a meal containing around 20 to 30 percent of your total daily carbohydrate intake. Our bodies are primed to absorb carbohydrates after a workout. Furthermore, your post-workout meal should contain 25-50 grams of protein. I prefer protein from whey isolate to help ensure it has enough leucine, thereby allowing faster protein uptake. Your post-workout meal should be under 10 grams of fat; the higher the fat content of a meal, the slower the absorption. Keeping a meal under 10 grams will ensure a quick uptake by your body.
