So I read these 2 articles...
And I'm kinda confuzzled on what a good post workout meal should be.
robb that sweet potatoes/ yams are a great post work out meal. If I read it correctly it's to replace carbs.
marc writes that a high protein snack is optimal b/c our body will naturally reproduce the carbs it needs.
So then what should i do? I crossfit 3-4 days a week, early in the morning at 5. So the meal would have to double as my breakfast as well.
I usually eat 4-5 eggs with 6 slices of bacon and a bag of steamed vegetables.
Today I switched it up and had a HUGE sweet potato with cinnamon and coconut oil with 6 bacon strips.
Are both ideal? Am I looking too much into this? Did I completely misread/misinterpret what I read?
Oh, and a little more info. I'm 5'8 male at 186 lbs. I do wanna gain muscle and get ripped but I do have a pudgy midsection I would like to get rid of. Basically, I want to look good at the beach :)
