I read this on Flex Wheeler’s web site:
I wanted to explain the method of why we choose certain foods a little bit, because the same concept applies when choosing supplements for your post workout liquid drink. I have found the best drink to be one that contains around 50 grams whey concentrate (or isolate) for your protein needs, and around 100 grams of high glycemic (GI) carbs, such as that found in many sports drinks at the gym or health food store. But, don’t fret. You can make your own using grape juice if you want. Go for what you can afford and what tastes best to you. Lastly, and believe it or not, a little of the right type of fat in the drink will help increase anabolic hormone levels with regards to testosterone, but also aids in glycogen storage. Remember, our glycogen stores are now depleted because of our workout. It’s time to fuel the tank, so to speak, and these three items do the trick. Oh, I forgot to tell you what type of fat. What we want here is flaxseed oil. Flax is an excellent source of cold processed oil not only for health, but also for fat loss and muscle gain. This little unknown fat belongs in the refrigerator of every serious lifter, right along with chicken, eggs and red meat. Be sure to read the bottle on proper storage. One teaspoon is fine. Don’t worry, you will barely know it is even there. Add some ice and a little water for texture to these ingredients, blend it up, and chug it down. Afterwards, drink a couple large glasses of cold water.
I thought fat was a no no after a workout? Although since i read this about 2 weeks ago i have added flax in my post workout drink.
