In The Flow Nutrition


Jul 26, 2019

It should come as no surprise that recovery is absolutely, without question, a critical factor in exercise performance. Recovering from and adapting to the training and stress we subject ourselves to through exercise is how we get stronger. Nutrition is part of this puzzle. In this episode of In The Flow, I discuss the science behind why food is so important in the recovery process, from the acute/short term to the chronic/long term considerations. I hit on things like:

  • The three main factors to focus on in the acute phase of recovery

  • The role of carbohydrate vs. protein in acute vs. chronic recovery

  • How the immune system is affected by nutrition and how that impacts recovery

  • My favorite post-workout recovery meal

  • And more!
