2. Get the right fuel
Aim for a 40/30/30 percentage breakdown of protein to carbs to fats during the day. You’ll want to save most of your carbs for workout days to take advantage of that quick energy; and if you can, eat your biggest meal right after training. (Your metabolism is kickin’ into high gear at that point and you don’t want any muscle to be broken down into fuel.) Think of carbs like fuel: you have to burn some off before you can refuel. But if you try to add gas to an already full tank, you’ll get nowhere.
