Most often than not what we achieve thru physical workout can be compromised by what we choose to eat after. How many times did you leave the aerobics class thinking what oh what shall I eat now. Or maybe how often did refuse food just so maybe you could speed up weight loss. Also we both have seen very often body builders drinking power sakes for energy after their workout.
