Carbs after a workout ..Researchers from the University of Michigan discovered that what you eat following a workout may trigger different metabolic responses... bouts of exercise all improved insulin sensitivity, but it was especially enhanced when the session included the low-carb meal.

Having good insulin sensitivity means that the body can more easily take sugar from the bloodstream, allowing muscles to use it for fuel.

If you are looking to restore glycogen levels for killer workouts and are not concerned about cutting weight from a partticular sport then foods high on the GI chart immediately after exercising is the way to go.

No white ever...try Brown Rice Noodles by Trader Joe's or Hodgson Mills Brown Rice noodles Wamart $2.00 for a lb at either store, It doesnt give you body a sugar rise like white foods do.

Brown or wild rice is also much better for you than WHITE RICE

Protein helps repair and rebuild muscles especially when eating 1/2 hour after exercise. Brown Rice cereal provides and replenishes depleted glycogen.. After a workout half some dark chocolate which will bring more oxygen to replenish any muscle sorness.
Trader Joes has Almonds covered in dark chocolate that are sooo yummy...The flavonoids in dark chocolate also help reduce insulin resistance by helping your cells to function normally and regain the ability to use your body's insulin efficiently.

You might also try... Pumpkin seeds are especially high in protein, low in calories and fat. Sunflower seeds have protein & almonds are particularly high in protein. Nuts are an excellent source of gas-free protein, as well as chicken, turkey, beans, peas, fish, cottage cheese, and peanut butter, parm cheese and romano cheese

Pepitas
They have a nutty flavor and a touch of pumpkin's sweetness. They are high in phosphorous and are a good source of magnesium and zinc, iron and copper. 1 Ounce has 8 Grams of protein making them a smart snack or salad addition. Pepitas are already shelled.
Easy to carry and a great snack....

How about almonds and a glass of chocolate milk? Maybe add some extra protein to the milk to reach your goal. Turkey sandwich with chocolate milk?

Hi, I am trying to find some ideas for protein following workouts. I normally will do a protein shake, but I want some alternatives. Does anyone have any ideas for high protein post workout snacks/meals? I would like something close to at least 40 grams. Thanks
