I work out at the club these days. Yes, inside! There is no waiting and there are very few people there using the machines. By the time I’ve done my cardio and the circuit, my hands are shaking.
The professionals will tell you that post work out, you have about an hour to eat some fat, protein and something that will help spike your glucose levels to aid recovery. Like a protein shake.
Or my solution for cooler weather days: 1/2 a lightly toasted bagel (whole wheat or everything), and a smear of low-fat cream cheese topped with a hunk of Alaskan smoked salmon.
On the plate, it is much prettier than that meal replacement bar. Add a small glass of orange juice and some coffee and you could fool yourself into believing that you have had a wonderful brunch.
