WORK­OUT FUEL

Health & Fitness - - Diet Diary -

‘I keep my pro­tein lev­els high be­cause my goal is to main­tain lean mus­cle mass. So, af­ter re­sis­tance train­ing, within 15 min­utes, I have an­other pro­tein shake of some kind and some fruc­tose [a sim­ple sugar in the form of an ap­ple, for ex­am­ple]. Depend­ing on the style of train­ing you’re do­ing, you can change your PCF (pro­tein-car­bo­hy­drate-fat) ra­tios. If you’re try­ing to build lean mus­cle mass, in­crease your pro­tein. If you’re do­ing en­durance train­ing, make sure you’re get­ting enough fuel with car­bo­hy­drates. It all de­pends on your goal.’
