Eating and working out - timing

Sunday, May 29, 2011

Part of the nutrition challenge this week is to review how important timing is in what you eat. I took the quiz about strength training and I got a whopping big fat F (50%) lol. I had never taken that quiz before and the info was really interesting, especially the part about not needing much extra protein to support it. That kind of info is thrown around regularly on SP so I was surprised that article said it was not exactly true.

I was also semi-surprised in one of the articles that said that your last meal before you workout isn't necessarily the one your body is using for energy during the workout. Intuitively I know that digestion takes a while, but that was kind of surprising for me.

There was a lot of good info there related to eating and working out, which would be great if I was working out lol. But I did bookmark it for later use!
