To get your body back on an even keel you need to provide it with a portion of carbohydrates with a high glycemic index, right after your workout such as the bars and balls that I make for my husband and myself. A sugar shot like this lowers the cortisol level and enables insulin to work its magic in anabolic processes (building). This is the exact moment when the so called anabolic window “opens”. It’s a it’s a period of time after your training session when your body is particularly primed to accept food . Because our organism needs some building material, for the next meal, we need to provide it with protein. It can be either meat or fish with vegetables, with a minimum amount of fat.
