Protein, the building blocks of life, are an important fuel source. Yes! Carbs are also our friend. The plan is to eat more carbs on training days and more fat on non-training days. Friday night through Sunday will be slightly more lax, however, very important to remain focussed and select good choices still so you don’t waste a whole week of training at our Gold Coast Personal Training Gym, see recipe below Muscle Protein Shake.
Other ways to get the calories up are some non-paleo things; specifically rice and oats. You can mix up what it is for the day, be sweet potatoes, oats, or rice.
