Training Days Rock My Sweet Tooth

It’s my favorite time of day again… and If you are a client of Erik’s (Lean Bodies Consulting) then you probably have guessed it.  Post- workout a.k.a. PWO. I love the freedom and flexibility I have with choosing my own ‘treats’! As long as if fits within the specific caloric and carb amount he prescribes me, its fair game.

 Right now I am training 5 days a week so I have been having lots of fun with my PWO meal.  Here is what I had today:


Yes, that is an ice cream cone. To be more specific, it is a McDonalds Ice Cream Cone.  At 150 calories and 24 grams of carbs, this is a great PWO food in addition to my protein shake. Or, in my case today I opted for a protein pancake.

 You are probably still thinking “Ice cream cones after working out??”  Yep. This is just one of the reasons I love working with Erik. Your diet doesn’t have to consist of chicken and asparagus 6 times a day.  Due to the flexibility here, the food possibilities at this meal are limitless!!  You can check out this thread on the Lean Bodies Fitness Forum.

There are also lots of other informative posts at Lean Bodies Fitness on PWO and why we are ‘allowed’ the flexibility to choose these types of foods.
