nutritious buying

After a gruelling day at the office, eating en pointe for the entire day and an even more gruelling workout, you find yourself home, hungry and hankering for that sneaky pizza in the freezer.

Don’t do it! What you eat after pounding the treadmill or lifting weights in a gainz bid can have a huge impact on your weight loss or muscle building efforts.

But, in true Muscle Food style, we want you to be able to make the most of every single workout and reap the rewards.

That’s why we’ve put together our top 5 post workout nutrition mistakes you keep making to help you reach your goals with pride…

1. Not Enough Water

Water is the key to life – that’s an undisputed fact (ask the scientists!) – but how many times have you “forgotten” to take your water bottle with you to the gym?

Or worse, taken it but haven’t drunk anything from it? It’s an all too common occurrence and it’s one that could actually be making you hold onto those pounds you wish to drop.

Research has shown that you don’t actually start to feel thirsty until you lose about 2% of your body weight in water. There’s no coincidence why this happens at the same time your workouts and weight loss efforts take a nosedive.

In a nutshell not drinking enough leaves you dehydrated and unable to function properly.

However, if you’re an avid water drinker, but you’ve worked hard and left a puddle of sweat on the floor, a large portion of that hard drunk water has been lost along with electrolytes like sodium and potassium.

Not enough of either can lead to muscle cramps and lethargy. Not what you want post workout.
