So how many calories should I drink for Post-Workout Recovery?
It really all depends on you and what you did in the gym. Athletes, who understand what they’ve burned in the gym and replace all of it achieve their performance goals. The fact is, these recovery shakes average only 300 to 400 calories and an average person burns that easily in 45 minutes of cardio. Many shakes could have their calories increased to equal your output in the gym if you’ve put in a hard workout. A good way to do that is to add a shot of honey and of course protein. Remember, match a calorie in with a calorie out and you will keep your body in an anabolic state.
