Shake on cardio days
For those of you who complete your cardio on a separate day, do you still take protein and simple carbs after cardio?
I would if I could afford it. Shakes are clean sources of calories and protein so drinking them isn't bad. But actual food is always better.
maybe if I did some hiit i would... but personally I just eat a regular meal.
I usually eat whole foods most days anyway.
Although this morning for instance I had a myoplex deluxe 1 hour before I ran 13 miles.
I like that because they don't sit "too heavy" in my gut.
Then, when I was done I ate about three cups of lowfat cottage cheese and two apples.
I'll eat a lot today too, I always do when I run so far.
