    Even though I workout at the CRC Clarksville and Glenwood Bootcamps I have to make a comment about this book Stephanie wrote about. I bought it out of the curiosity of wanting to know how Vegans and vegetarians fuel their workouts because of the old school way I learned and all the folks I knew doing the Atkins diet. The book is very good I started experimenting on myself with the types of pre and post work out meals for Stephanies Bootcamps. The best foods that work for me are apples and I eat them about 45 to 30 minutes before a Glenwood Boot camp or the boot camp at the CRC. Right after either of these boot camps I get some kind of natural whey protien and fruit slush. The book was an eye opener and has helped me in recovery when working out with Stephanie.

    Although I will probably never make it out to the Northern Virginia boot camp due to the distance, I can still find value in this info. I had no idea about fuel windows. These ideas are foreign to me but now that I know I can eat smarter. Knowing helpful tidbits like this can help me maximize the efficiency of my weight loss journey! My typical post workout meal is usually a fruit and nut KIND granola bar instead of my Chick Fila kid’s meal. It’s so easy to grab fast food but if you make a conscious effort to eat something that actually fuels your body your body will thank you for it later. This week I am hoping to try to make a GREEN MONSTER post workout smoothie, I’ll pop some dates in it and blend it. We’ll see how that goes.

    I have noticed that when I workout at the Fulton Boot Camp with Stephanie that what I eat really does make a difference in how I feel. For example if I eat protein, like a handful of almonds, before Boot Camp in Fulton my run times are faster and I can do more push ups.

    I attend the Fulton bootcamp but this information is really helpful. Just yesterday after working out I told myself I deserved some chocolate, little did I realize all I did was ruin my progress for the day. One piece of chocolate soon turned into 4 pieces and by the end of the night I felt bad about what I ate. Understanding what a snack is and what’s appropriate after doing a 1 hour workout is helpful and important to prevent me from sabotaging my success. I’m going to try fruit or dates next time and check out this book as well. Thanks for the advice!

    I wish there had been a northern virginia bootcamp when i lived there. With so many young professionals in the area I ‘m sure it would have been alot of fun.

    Love having a smoothie after my bootcamp workout (recommendation from Stephanie). She also introduced me to a kale smoothie that you can get in Clarksville. Very good.

    I would love to see the detailed recipe for post workout In Brazier’s book. I know Mary often talks about post work out smoothies.
