Have you ever…
Washed your car in the rain?
Brushed your teeth, then ate a meal?
Showered, then went to the gym?
Ate like crap after a workout?
If you answered yes to any of these, you’re ridiculous. Pay particular attention to the last one.
There are those that think working out will burn excess calories, so they deserve an ice cream or a treat. And that would be alright, if it happened on the rare occasion. But I’m sure it happens more frequently.
What happens to your body during and after a workout? You have broken down your muscles and they start to regenerate, growing bigger and stronger. However, they need the proper fuel. If your car was on empty, would you fill it with sugar or some other crap? NO! You put the proper fuel in it so it will continue to perform.
Why would you treat your body any different? When you dump crap in your body, it’s not helping it recover. It will not help you perform better.
Think of food as the foundation of your house. It’s going to crumble if the base is made of garbage. Food is your body’s foundation. Build it with the best material you can.
Eat better, sleep better, see the results!
