Refueling with protein after workout... Do you have to if not hungry ?
I have been Paleo nearly a year... Lost 55 lbs and Just found Mark's great Primal Blueprint program to take it up a notch to drop more weight. I Started the occasional fasting every few days from 6pm until noon or so the following day, which has removed all cravings (so I must be getting into fat burner mode!). I am keeping my carbs between 20-50 grams a day. My question is: since I usually work out in the morning, I was used to shaking up whey isolate protein powder with water to drink immediately after as I have always read that it is important to get some protein in immediately after a workout for muscles. I have noticed the past few days that I am neither 'woozy' or hungry after I exercise, so should I still have the protein at that time or just wait and save the calories for later ? Thoughts ? Thanks !
