Sports Nutrition Class

Did you know that by adjusting what you eat and when you eat after a workout, you can increase your energy, enhance your ability to gain muscle mass and improve your performance in subsequent workouts?

Your body has an enhanced ability to replenish muscle glycogen stores (one of your main fuel sources during workouts) and repair muscle tissue during the 2 hours following a workout. In order to optimize recovery, make sure to consume a recovery snack within 30 minutes of your workout and a real meal within 2 hours.

The recovery snack and real meal should include carbohydrate and protein. When choosing drinks, bars or other recovery foods, look for a 3:1 or 4:1 ratio of carbohydrate to protein. Chocolate milk is an example of a recovery drink with a 4:1 ratio of carbohydrate to protein.

For more information on recovery nutrition and the fundamentals of nutrition for performance, OC Nutrition will be offering a Sports Nutrition Class in Newport Beach. This course provides CEU’s by the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA).
