    Desired food after a workout

    I usually crave for food and drinks when I do a serious workout. I remember wishing roasted pig one time that after my workout, I went straight home and brought my family to a restaurant that serves roasted pig. And when I start to sweat, the image of Coke in the red can is plastered on my mind although sometimes it is orange juice. But lately, when I do my basic workout in the morning, I crave for a rice breakfast, thatís fried rice with tomato and salted egg plus fried dried fish and sometimes it is the native sausage.

    Re: Desired food after a workout

    @Alexandoy are you serious lol I meant about the workout? If you are looking to build up some muscles then I think it is pretty okay to stuff up post exercises.

    Incase you want to lean out though, I don't think this sort of calories packed regimen can help you shed or remain in shape.

    What you should eat depends on what result you work for now. If on mass, so u should eat more carbs, if muscles , so try to eat more protein and less carbs

    Re: Desired food after a workout

    Well like most everyone else I really try to get some good protein in and usually nothing that would make me too full. The last thing I want is a full feeling after a good workout which would make me just sit down and let it all go to waste.

    Are you saying that you shouldn't sit after a workout? Does it hamper your metabolism? After food the blood pools towards the stomach for the digestion and any vigorous activity may hamper the digestion. In this light, how do you advise post meal activity levels?

    I think that what he meant @decentlady, is that after working out we should not eat heavy foods or too much that cause us to feel sleepy. We should eat something adequate to complement the exercise we just did, as workout and nutrition go hand in hand.

    Re: Desired food after a workout

    It's better to rest for a while after the strenuous exercise, suddenly eat a lot of high-calorie supplement may give the stomach a lot of burden


    Kind regards!

    Thank you for the elaboration. I agree with you that nutrition and workout go hand in hand. Yes, light food may keep you active and so help in burning more calories as you might do something rather than sleeping.

    I crave pancakes and result is a failure, lol.
    But, as I can eat at most two I don't think it is influencing my plan.

    I don't have any problems with my stomach, besides it is demanding... but you maybe have this sort of a difficulties because you are either sensitive or even allergic.
    It is possible.
    Check out if there is some sort of intolerance to it.

    Re: Desired food after a workout

    Could be as this is the only type of protein that bothers me. If I only do one scoop it is not bad, but if I go for 2 it feels like I have a brick in my belly. yuck

    Re: Desired food after a workout

    It is perfectly normal to desire food after a good time of training. After so much struggle, our body needs a big amount of energy. It is important to have a healthy diet to assure which be good for our body and increase in the future our training.

    Re: Desired food after a workout

    I can drink protein shakes post workout, but it tends to screw with my appetite for about an 1& a half afterwards. Because of my work schedule, this does not workout for me. I take my protein shakes in the morning & at night. I generally wait about an hour after my workout & eat a good size meal. Usually take some digestive enzymes aling with it. Desire means what ya want & I want lots of salty foods after my workout! Lol what I TRY to stick to eating is chicken or lean beef along with whole wheat bread, but I will eat whatever I get my hands on, if I'm in a hurry. I eat eggs later becuase they digest a little slower & not best for post workout.

    I will stick to the big fat cheeseburger, because I literary see no difference when I eat healthy or whatever is suggested. My friends are amazed with my metabolism but I am just plain terrible with reshaping my body.
