Difference Between Male and Female Post Workout Nutrition (Part 1) :

This doesn't really get discussed much and everyone pretty much assumes it is the same, it isn't and there's one big difference that most people don't account for. The psychology difference between men and women is the single biggest determining factor in their post workout nutrition. Here's an example of how you would describe the importance of post workout nutrition to a man versus to a woman.

Man: "Go home, make sure you get your protein shake in the car or right when you walk in the door. You better take some carbs with it as well, maybe a sweet potato or oatmeal. Oh, it would be a good idea to add some creatine in too."

Woman: "Is today going to be the day that you'll try a protein shake? No? Ok, how about eating some chicken, maybe in a salad and a few pieces of fruit? You don't feel like eating right after your workout? Ok, then wait 30 minutes to eat."


That is a huge difference right there. One is assertive and indicates that unless you have your protein and carbs or protein and healthy fat post workout that you'll run the risk of eating muscle tissue and not recovering. The second is like pulling teeth and hoping that there will be compliance.

That's not to say that women are difficult, it's just that they can't mentally picture themselves eating food right after they workout and most women don't even want the 100 calories or so that come in a protein shake.

It's just a case of not being able to knock a wall down with a hammer. You have to go around the wall. Explaining the benefits of proper post workout nutrition might work for 1 out of every 5 women so don't give up but don't think you are going to educate everyone.
