The ideal recovery meal you should have right after a workout to heal and repair muscle includes 10 to 20 grams of protein. This should be taken right after your workout.

Then, 45 to 60 minutes after your workout, eat a meal that consists of another 10 to 20 grams of protein and 50 to 100 grams of carbs┬áto boost glycogen, the body’s primary source of short-term fuel.

Although fat is not a traditional recovery nutrient, fewer than 10 grams of unsaturated fats may also be beneficial to replenish muscle lipids, which are depleted during exercise.

This is why a great protein shake like Recovery by SFH is perfect for right after a workout. It gives you 15 grams of protein, 1 gram of fat, 89 calories and zero carbs. It is also designed to help the athlete rapidly recover cellular energy stores ( ATP ), helps maintain joint health and flexibility, and works to build lean muscle mass. It also gives you key building accelerators: leucine, isoleucine, glutamine, creatine and taurine.

I take one scoop of SFH Recovery right after a workout then one hour later I eat a meal with 10 to 20 grams of protein, 50 to 100 grams of carbs, 10 grams of fat and 300 to 500 calories.
