Workout Recovery Shake

Submitted by: LADYMILLS

Introduction

According to a study in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, grab a snack with 4-to-1 ratio of carbs to protein within 30 minutes of your workout. This is the best way to offset muscle damage.

Your body absorbs liquids faster than solid food, so you'll get the most immediate bounce-back if you drink your snack in shake form.
