Planning Meals Around Your Workouts
Meal planning can be boring and sometimes, downright frustrating! Add the fact you have fitness or weight loss goals and you need another workout just to relieve the stress. Here is a great infographic to help in planning meals around your workouts so you get the most out of the food you eat.
The most important meal where the ratio is critical is post workout. You need to feed your body both carbs and proteins. The best ratio is 2 carbs to 1 protein. When planning meals around your workouts be sure this one is always spot on. My intake of calories for the day is around 1600 so I need to adjust the grams of the proteins, carbs and fat I am taking in every day. If yours is higher aim for a 40-30-30 range of carbs, fats and proteins. If you are looking to build muscle increase your protein and lower your carbs.
