You put a lot of energy in your workouts in the gym so why not consume the best nutritious food to get the best results? Timing is everything. When it comes to post workout meal the best option is to consume a combination of fast acting carbs with a low fat protein source. An example of that would be white fish and steamed white rice or protein shake and rice cakes. This type of combination of food will give your body the nutrients it needs to recover and build new muscle.
