Your Food Choice After Workout Matters

New research coming out of the University of Michigan tells us that “exercise doesn’t occur in a vacuum, and it is very important to look at both the effects of exercise and what you’re eating after exercise.” These new findings are changing how people are looking at their work our regimens. The study’s senior author, Jeffrey F. Horowitz explained that “differences in what you eat after exercise produce different effects on the body’s metabolism.” Researchers concluded that high carbohydrate foods eaten directly after a workout will minimize the benefits on a person’s metabolism. Keep in mind that weight loss is still important for improving metabolic health of overweight and obese people, but these results seem to say that people can still reap important health benefits from exercise without having to under eat or lose weight, Dr. Horowitz said.
