What are the worst things to eat after you workout?
1. Low carb meals – you need to replace your glycogen. Even if you are following a low carb diet or carb cycling, this is the time you must ingest carbs.
2. High fat foods – you workout out hard and now you feel that you deserve a big meal, or you are just plain hungry. High fat foods, especially at this time, will slow down your digestion and prevent glycogen replacement.
3.Veggies – this is the only time you should skip veggies in your daily routine. Have your veggies at your other meals-especially when you need a higher volume of food to make you feel fuller.
