Tim's 7:2:1 Tips for Eating When Training for City 2 Surf

Fuel your body with the right ingredients post workout. The energy you expend in your workouts should only be replenished with a wholesome combination of fibre, protein, good fats and good carbs.
The best time to eat after a workout is 30-60 minutes. This is the most beneficial window of time to replenish muscle glycogen stores, rehydrate, repair muscles for quicker recovery and stop inflammation in its tracks.
Bananas are a perfect post and pre workout food. With 36 grams of carbs, ½ a gram of fat and 600mg of potassium, paired with some Greek yoghurt or blended with a scoop of protein powder makes for a great liquid refuel.
Don't forget to hydrate! Replacing water and electrolyte loss is highly important for optimal recovery.
