    Do you need to refuel?

    Recovery nutrition is a hot topic and a confusing one. You’ve likely seen recovery bars in store aisles, people leaving the gym with their post-workout shake in hand and articles promoting the best foods to refuel post-workout. Naturally, this makes you wonder if you need to refuel after exercising. Or perhaps you refuel now, but should you?

    Should I Count Calories?

    I have a confession to make (keep in mind that I’m a dietitian). I rarely, if ever, look at the calories on a food label or menu board. In fact, I intentionally avoid it. I would be hard-pressed to tell you the calories in my ice cream last night or oatmeal this morning. I also don’t know what my ‘ideal’ calorie intake should be. And if you and I were having a conversation about nutrition, calories would be the last thing we discussed. Why is this? We are consistently encouraged to be mindful of our calorie intake, whether that be through the calories on a menu or the app on our phone. While a general awareness of calories can be helpful for some, making them front and centre can have negative outcomes. I’d like to invite you to consider some calorie counting cons along with an alternative approach.
