post workout shake

Hi,

Does anyone know of a good brand for a post workout shake powder for women? Currently I have been using either whey protein powder (Jay Robb brand) or Casein...just wondering if that is good or not?

Re: post workout shake

Fitzy1,

One brand may be considered "good" compared to another brand. But the question I would ask is: How does "a powder" compare to natural whole food? If you're asking about health, no powder concoction compares with natural whole (unprocessed) food.

I don't know what you like but I can try to give you a few examples. If you work out at a gym you would need to carry this with you. So how about one omega-3 hard boild egg and a small apple. That would give you protein, fat and carbs. And I think omega-3 eggs are low in saturated fat.

Or, if you object to eating egg yolks, buy regular large eggs and eat one or two egg whites, a few nuts and a small apple. If it's within 2 hours of meal time one egg white might do it. And you can substitute other fruit like half of a medium banana. Get creative.

If your workout is at home, that opens you up to a lot more choices. Any healthy food that you see in the refrigerator will do like a small one ounce piece of chicken, a few nuts and half of a medium orange. I'm keeping portions small because I assume it is to be just a snack.

Re: post workout shake

It depends on the workout.

For a long endurance workout, fast digesting carbohydrates like sports drinks during the workout are often consumed to avoid bonking, and may be consumed immediately after to reload one's glycogen stores. (But fast digesting carbohydrates are generally less healthy at other times.)

For a workout that makes your muscles sore (e.g. heavy weight lifting), consuming some protein shortly after and at the next meal may help.

For workouts that are at most moderate intensity and duration, it is less likely that any special post workout food would make much of a difference if you are otherwise well nourished with healthy foods.

Re: post workout shake

yea I am a gym rat lol so I am always there... as far as my workout goes it depends on the day.. I do heavy lifting about 3 days a week and as far as cardio goes I just start doing tiabata (sp?) aka HITT cardio (its freaking crazy and makes me supppppper exhausted) so I guess that does make a difference. Thanks so much for everything thus far!

Re: post workout shake

My favorite shake is bananas and strawberries with youghurt or milk and a healthy dollop of almonds - all tossed in the liquidiser. I am no food expert but I think that gives you a healthy meal all in one great tasting shake - carbs, proteins and fats.
