12 Laws of Fat-Burning Training Rule 8Rule 8


After you train in the gym or at home, or finish whatever sport you play with your team, it’s difficult to gain bodyfat. Why? Depleted, broken-down muscles soak up both protein and carbohydrates for growth and recovery.
If you eat too little at this time, you may actually set yourself back by impeding recovery; supporting recovery and growth actually increases metabolism while impeding it slows metabolism. In terms of spurring recovery and growth, just about the most counterproductive thing you can do after hard exercise is starve yourself.

Do This: Consume 30-40 grams of Protein Powder such as Whey powder and Casein along with 60-80 grams of fast-digesting carbs (a large baked potato, 2-3 slices of white bread or a sports drink) as soon as possible within an hour after training.
