How soon after I workout should I eat? And what should I eat? These are some questions that come up frequently with my clients. In short, we should eat as soon after the workout as possible... within 30 minutes, if possible. This meal should consist of both carbohydrate and protein. We need to replenish our protein stores as well as the carbohydrates in order to restore the depleted muscle glycogen. An example of a good post-workout meal would be a whey-protein drink with fruit and/or fruit juice.
My objective when making healthy recipes is to keep it quick, easy and tasty. Today since I was running around doing errands I was very tempted to stop and get some fast food however I remembered that I had some frozen salmon in the fridge! Salmon, as you may know is full of omega 3s, vitamin D and is beneficial for your hair and skin. Once it had defrosted, I seasoned it with sea salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme and oregano then slipped it into the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
There are so many diets out there to help people lose weight. Lets face it, weight loss is a million-dollar industry. What I like to see my clients focus on instead of 'dieting,' is : making healthy food choices, using portion control, and supplementing with the necessary vitamins to fuel their needs. So many diets these days involve deleting a whole food group, such a carbs, from your daily intake. Our body need carbs, protein and fat everyday. It is important though to educate yourself on what carbs to eat as well as which are the healthy fats.
When it comes to proper nutrition I see many people cheating and thinking it is ok. If you eat a good healthy nutrition plan and exercise you can reach every goal. So why self sabotage with alcohol or extra sugar?I will be the first to tell you that cheat meals are ok, but not every night or multiple in the same night. Binging happens more times then not and people just are not recognizing that they are even doing it. This is why tracking your nutrition is very important.

The American College of Sports Medicine recommends adding stretching to your overall fitness regime to maintain or improve your range of motion. At least 10 minutes of stretching the major muscle groups, two to three times per week can dramatically improve flexibility. If you are a beginner, gradually incorporate just a few stretches into your day—at work, before bed or after your morning shower. Stretching is most effective when your muscles are warm.
For most people making exercise a top of the list priority is not realistic. The thought of actually "having to workout" every day (even for 30 minutes) seems daunting. I have written about this in a previous blog and have posted a blog on Jills List about "not having time".
