Training for an Athletic Event? Include These 5 Foods for Post-Workout Recovery!

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great weekend!

So many people I talk to are training for the marathon. I hear their stories of weekends devoted to long runs and clocking calories. And I also hear how painful the process can be! It’s no joke to run 22 miles on a Sunday and then have to go to work the next day—that’s no easy feat, and difficult to recover from.

But there is a lot you can do nutritionally to minimize the pain and rebound faster. Whether you are running the marathon or just getting yourself to the gym more often, there are certain foods you should be including in your diet on a regular basis to help you replenish your glycogen stores, reduce inflammation and rehydrate your body so it bounces back quickly and allows you to keep training in a healthy and sustainable way. One big challenge to training is not hurting yourself, and recovering well is a big part of helping you achieve that.

In today’s video I am going to share with you 5 great recovery foods. You will also learn what the best fruit to include in your diet to reduce lactic acid AND get a good night’s rest, which is also important for healthy recovery. I’ll also talk about the best combinations of foods to eat for maximum results. Eating these foods individually is great, but it is the combination of them that can make all the difference.

Are you training for the marathon? If so, are there any particular foods you are making sure you include in your diet to help you rebound faster? If so, let us know so our entire community can benefit from your experience.

Thanks again for watching and good luck with your training!! And Kick Ass on November 3rd!

Have a great week!
