Hey folks,

I'm switching to the Zone this week and need advice on post workout eating.

I'm doing the BrandX scaled WOD (I'm new to Crossfit--you people are animals), followed by my usual 50 minutes on the stairclimber (I'm a climber/hiker so I need the endurance). The only problem is that I finish up and am craving carbohydrates.

Any advice on a good, zone-friendly recovery snack? I tried searching but only found bits on eggs, tuna, and seeds?

Thanks all.

Protein shake with a bit of olive oil and some grapes, fast, easy, within Zone parameters, but quickly digesting for maximum bang for your buck post-workout.

You might also think of eventually shifting a good portion of your daily blocks to peri-workout, eating meat, veggies and fats the rest of the day. Seems to have the split benefit of insulin control (via low-carb for most meals and Zone ratios overall for the day) along with post-workout nutrition (with the post-workout carb allocation helping drive nutrients to muscles)

Just a few things to try out and see how they work for you.
