“For me, I always recommend a combination of protein, carbohydrate and fat at every meal and snack (this is the basis of The 1:1:1 Formula in my book),” Batayneh said. “The body uses carbohydrates as an immediate energy source- great for the cardio routine but remember your muscles need recovery after resistance/strength training which is where protein comes in. The key thing when we are fueling for activity is that our energy is sustained and that our blood sugar is stable, otherwise we will be in store for a lack luster workout and a desire to likely overeat afterwards due to sheer hunger. This is why the combination of all 3 macronutrients in key (Fats that we typically find in healthy and clean bars/snacks area likely to come from seeds and nuts).”

Don't Leave A Chink In Your Armor A post-workout shake without branched chain amino acids (BCAA's) is like a rock band without a drummer. Since these are the essential amino acids that the muscles cannot make themselves, supplementing with isolated BCAA's is great for boosting your body's recovery efficiency and protein synthesis.* Because BCAA's are limiting nutrients, deficiency can result in inefficient recovery, so keep everything in sync proper BCAA supplementation.
