No other time is as great to enjoy your carbs as after an intense workout!
Right after strenuous exercise is when sugar isn't 'evil' or fattening but just really good for recovery and to boost your body's interest in building lean muscle.
What kind of carbs you choose depends on your preference. This is not the time to be a 'diet police' thinking simple sugar is counterproductive.
Here are two lists of 'healthy and nutritious' carbs and one 'not nutritious but highly effective in restoring the muscles' stores of carbs called glycogen.
'healthy and very nutritious' carbs
baked winter squash
steamed beets & carrots
brown rice cakes (brown has more micronutrients than white)
Not nutritious but highly effective
This list is more fun! So let's do a picture gallery!
