    Thanks for the insightful blog! I’m going to have to send my friend your way so I won’t have to explain (and he won’t have to argue with me) about eating after working out.

    He always says, the workout is sayang. Hope he finally gets it!

    Thanks for the tip!

    I was feeling rather drained yesterday after my heavy weight training workout. Didn’t want to eat a meal as I had some food waiting at home.

    So, I took juice first to fill the stomach before heading home (15mins drive) before filling up on vege and soup.

    I’d guess eating the right thing after training is important too. Something like fruits or a powerbar is ok, right?

    It is also important to take enough good quality protein after a workout. The requirements for protein is higher for people who work out and is best absorbed within 1 hour of an intense workout. Go for high quality protein like lean chicken (tandoori chicken comes to mind) or fish (asam pedas comes to mind).

    I never understood how some folks could go to the gym during their lunch time but totally skip their meals. I always feel famished after a lunch time work out, even when I’ve had a power bar or a banana before that.
    In fact, sometimes in the midst of exercising hard, I already have thoughts on what to eat after I’m done with the session.

    That is a myth your metabolism does not slow down. In fact your metabolism wnb’t start to slow down until about 3 weeks to a month later.
