When building muscle timing, your meals and knowing what to eat prior to working out and afterwards is vital to rather you are building muscle or breaking it down.
Prior to working out you absolutely want to ensure you’re eating something high in carbohydrates to help fuel your body through the session. Never on an empty stomach but you don’t want to eat too much! Something small like an apple, a banana, a slice of toast, or a small bowl of plain oatmeal will suffice.
Immediately after working out where people go wrong is not eating enough nutrient enriching foods to help support muscle growth or they don’t eat at all. Or they will just drink a smoothie or protein shake which is cool but you still need to eat something to encourage muscle growth and inflammation. At least eat 30 to 45 mins after working out.
A meal that’s balanced with carbs and protein is perfect.
Typically my meal is oatmeal with flax and chia seeds, honey, cinnamon, and peanut butter. (why ya’ll withheld the deliciousness of peanut butter and oatmeal from me for so long I DON’T KNOW!!!!)
