A Seattle-based registered dietitian nutritionist, Ginger Hultin said, “Fueling properly post-workout helps preserve lean body mass (i.e. muscle) and support the body as it recovers from the short-term stress of intense fitness.”

She also explained, “While carbohydrates are generally the focus pre-workout, foods that contain the protein are key after your fitness routine,” Then she added, “Depending on your goals, I often recommend a low-fat, but not ‘no-fat’ product, so you get access to all three macros post-workout.”

Experts recommend consuming 30 to 60 grams of carbohydrates and 10 to 30 grams of protein. But you need to remember that this instruction may vary based on age, sex, and the types of exercise you are doing. It is just a rule of thumb.

That’s why Hultin said, “The important thing to know is that many sources of protein are also natural sources of fat (think: nuts, seeds, dairy, soy, and animal products like eggs and meat) so if you focus on the protein, you’ll generally get a little fat naturally along with it.”
