Nutrient Timing

By July 25, 2017blog

On several occasions I’ve been asked the following question, “What should I eat to help me achieve my goals? My first response is, what are you looking to accomplish, reducing body of fat, or gaining lean muscle? As you can imagine, I get varied responses based on the demographics. To help shed light of this question, I have provided the CliffsNotes to the answer.

To Reduce Body Fat:

Consume exercise recovery drinks during exercise only.
Minimize the intake of simple sugars and highly processed starches.
Consume whole-grain and or starchy carbohydrates with 1-2 hours after exercise.
Fruits and vegetables should be eaten with each meal. The emphasis placed on vegetables.
Lean protein should be eaten with each meal.

 

To Gain Lean Muscle Mass:

Consume exercise recovery drinks during and after exercise.
The intake of simple sugars and highly processed starches should be taken immediately after exercise (if at all).
Consume whole-grain and or starchy carbohydrates with 3 hours after exercise.
Fruits and vegetables should be eaten with each meal.
Lean protein should be eaten with each meal.
