What to eat when you ex­er­cise

BBC Good Food - - Easy Family -

We’ve high­lighted recipes in the plan that are es­pe­cially good af­ter ex­er­cise – just look for the sym­bol be­low. For re­sis­tance train­ing, pro­tein is key for mus­cle re­pair, and for car­dio and en­durance train­ing you’ll need some en­er­gis­ing carbs to re­plen­ish glyco­gen stores, as well as pro­tein. We’ve also in­cluded some nat­u­ral anti-in­flam­ma­tory in­gre­di­ents such as turmeric in our recipes, to help ease tired joints and mus­cles. Mus­cles are most re­cep­tive in the 30-minute win­dow fol­low­ing ex­er­cise, so eat in this time frame if you can. Re­mem­ber to drink plenty of hy­drat­ing flu­ids, and if nec­es­sary, in­clude a small amount of sodium to re­place any lost through per­spi­ra­tion.
