To wait or not to wait ...


Recommended Posts

The meal planning template on this site states to eat immediately following a work-out. However, in the book Practical Paleo she explains why eating immediately after a work-out is not good because your body is not yet in its 'rest and digest' state and eating prior to this state can pose digestive problems.

So, my question - eat immediately as suggested here, or wait at least 30 minutes before consuming food following a workout as I've read other "Paleo" places?

Well, you're on the Whole30 Forum, so our advice is going to follow Whole9 guidelines. If you'd prefer to wait, that's absolutely your choice - the pre and post workout meals aren't the key to Whole30 success :) I've personally not noticed much difference in my digestion or recovery with a 5 minute or 45 minute wait for post workout food.
