37. Don’t Overdo the Post-workout Snack

Lofton says that most average exercisers who work desk jobs and work out for even up to 90 minutes per day probably aren’t depleting their carbohydrate stores to the point that they need to refuel with a real recovery meal or snack.

If you’re working out for about an hour and a half per day and are otherwise mostly sedentary, your post-workout snack should be about 30 grams of carbs.

That’s two small pieces of fruit or a 6-inch tortilla and two tablespoons of hummus.

OK, so that’s a lot to think about.
