RECIPE: Metabolic Boosting Courtside Cooler
This delicious Courtside Cooler (also known as the pink drink) is THE BEST CHOICE when it comes to a post-game mocktail. This one boosts metabolism and recovery and healing, both of which accelerate fat-burning for less than $2.00 a serving!
When it comes to post-workout, tennis, golf, or a softball game, the biggest mistake people make is refueling with the wrong macronutrients, especially when trying to lose weight.
Most people don't realize that all of the hard work and sweat barely burns off a cookie. I feel you! When it comes to post-workout nutrition those seemingly healthy smoothies aren’t any better. In fact, most typical smoothies spike blood sugar, which blocks fat and impairs your body's natural healing abilities.
There are a few simple guidelines to keep in mind when it comes to refueling after your work or workout if you're trying to lose weight and improve metabolic health.
After your next long run, bike ride, or boot camp burpee, remember these three simple tricks.
- KEEP IT SIMPLE: Digestion is impaired after working out and that's why a clean protein shake or amino acids are your best choice. Proteins like LynFit Natural Whey Protein has a 98% absorption rate and contains all of the amino acids you need to recover faster.
- HYDRATION IS PARAMOUNT: No need to overdose on salt or chow down on a 125+ calorie banana that's straight sugar with a few electrolytes. Bananas are high in sugar and do not contain the balance of electrolytes your body needs. That's why professionals always have a hydration ritual such as drinking LynFit Essential Amino Acids that also contains electrolytes, making it the perfect combination of healing amino acids and hydration boosting electrolytes in the most usable form, so your body gets what it needs fast!
SKIP THE DAIRY AND SUGAR: Dairy contains lactose (a sugar) that is difficult to digest, especially as you age. Sugar (even those seemingly healthy sugars like agave) spike blood sugar, blocking your body's recovery process, which is the last thing you want to do after a tough game or workout.
*This includes most typical sports drinks like Gatorade, Power Ade, and premade drinks too. Of course, that means skipping the alcohol post-game :)
Now that you know what to avoid after your next game or workout, here is the simple Metabolic Boosting Courtside Cooler recipe.
Combine (8-10 oz.) of water + (1 scoop) LynFit Natural Whey Protein Powder + (1 scoop) LynFit Essential Amino Acids with a handful of ice. Shake or mix until completely dissolved, garnish with a few berries, and ENJOY!
