Let me explain why the nutrients in this shake will help with weight loss.
– High in protein and essential amino acids
– Lower in calories and carbohydrates
A post workout shake low in carbs…say what? Now I know you’ve probably heard me say carbohydrates post workout are in a good thing, and in most cases it is. Especially when you’re already lean and looking to build muscle. If that’s you, this post-workout shake recipe is NOT for you.
So the difference with this post workout shake is that it’s designed specifically for overweight people who are following a low carb fat loss diet. But here’s a shocker.
When you’re overweight and your goal is fat loss, carbohydrates are not as essential after your workout. The reason is with all that extra stored body fat, your glycogen levels are probably close to or already at capacity.
When you have a fat loss goal, it’s important to keep sugar consumption lower as you want to turn your body into a fat burning machine. This means you want to burn stored fat for energy, not sugar.
However, with all this said, it’s still very important to take a protein shake after your workout.
Your post workout shake for weight loss should contain key nutrients to:
– Increase muscle protein synthesis:
Protein synthesis promotes muscle growth, muscle repair, and muscle recovery, to prevent further muscle breakdown caused by your workout. Remember, since your goal is weight loss, it’s also super important to do whatever you can to maintain muscle while in a calorie deficit. This is key because maintaining lean muscle is critical in building a fast and healthy metabolism. Focus on losing weight from stored body fat, not weight from lean muscle.
The nutrients in this post workout shake for weight loss will help maintain lean calorie crushing muscle while burning off the stored body fat.
– Maintaining hydration:
After a workout, your body can be depleted of water, therefore it’s important to drink lots of water after your workouts. This post workout shake can help increase your water consumption.
– Replenish your body with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants:
After a tough workout your body is like a sponge that is looking to suck up a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants to help speed up recovery.
The greens powder and organic spinach will definitely help add more of these superfood nutrients to your diet.
With all that said, here’s the recipe.
1.5 cups Water
1 handful Spinach
1 serving Athletic Greens:
2 scoops Rootz Paleo Protein:
3 grams Leucine
5 grams Creatine Monohydrate
1 serving Stevia optional
3 ice cubes
