“Whether you’re working out to lose fat, increase muscle tone or just feel good, hitting the gym is only part of the battle to get the best results. Because while your diet matters throughout the day, your post-workout meal might play the biggest role of all — take that, breakfast.
See, your body stores glycogen and protein in its muscles. During a workout, your body first burns through the nutrients you ate pre-workout and moves on to the stored glycogen, burning it as energy. Then, after stepping off the treadmill, the protein in your muscles begins to drop and muscle fibers start breaking down.
But for a magical time — for about 30 to 60 minutes after wrapping up a workout — your body is primed to refuel and replenish itself by absorbing carbs and protein once again.” — Dr. Axe
