Once you've finished our workout, don't waste your hard work by eating the wrong types of food at the wrong time. Apply the knowledge that took me years to learn. Whenever I'm trying to tone up and lose weight (which is always) I wait about 30 minutes after my workout (to allow my body to recoup from the stress of exercise) and then I make a protein shake to give my muscles the capital they need to grow and repair. Again, not all products are the same. Don't put just any "protein powder" into your temple. You only want to ingest a protein powder that has ingredients you can actually read and more importantly, you need to know exactly where your protein powder came from. We use Evolution Essentials all-natural protein powder. It meets all the requirements that mean so much to us: it comes from all-natural, grass fed cows that graze year-round on pesticide-free and chemical-free natural grass pastures, and it isn't loaded with unnecessary fillers and cheap substitutes. 

Lindsey and I drink at least one tasty shake per day to keep our protein high and our sugar and calories low...I even prescribed it to my sweet, little 90 year old mamaw Reba, and she thinks they're delicious too!
