Post workout eats, Hunter Gatherers and Satiety.
I was thinking about these things this morning after my work out. When hunter gatherers finish a succesful hunt, when do they eat? They eat a little bit right away...then wait to get back to camp to really chow down. (after the kill, they might together share the heart or something as a little snack right?) Then it might take them an hour to walk back to camp. I've noticed that my "hunger" after workouts replicates this model. When I get back from the gym, I'm always in the mood for a "tasty small morsel" I might eat one slice of bacon or a spoon full of yogurt. But it's all that I want at that time. I will prep up a little meal to go before my shower, and about an hour later I eat. What are your experiences? Here was my to go breakfast;
A small sausage and some yellow pepper,celery and cherry tomatoes. Add some FAT in there by drizzling evoo in the veggie bag with a sprinkle of sea salt. The evoo makes a huge difference helping you feel satiated after a smaller meal like this. Talking about satiety...Keith Norris has mentioned it often, but if you are ever hungry when you know you really shouldn't be (old habits die hard, I know), have yourself a spoonful of coconut oil. The mornings I don't eat, I take my vitamin D3 drops with a spoonful of coconut oil. Good for absorption and helps with the small fast till 1pm or so.
New video coming up next.
