What does everyone eat before/after exercise? I’ve been exercising about 90mins each day at either swimming or yoga and was reading how what we eat pre/post workouts is basically as important as the workouts themselves. Do you pay attention to ratios of carbs/proteins/fats, or eat instinctually? What’s worked for you best in terms of muscle gain, fat loss, and speeding up recovery time?
Also, Brendan Brazier has some energy bar recipes in his book which I’ve tried to make. They’re quite tasty but I can’t take them anywhere because they end up way too squished. How is it that the commercial bars can be so much more solid when the ingredients are basically the same? Is anyone concerned about energy bars not being a good food combo?
