Lose the Last 10 Pounds: Evening

Ok boys and girls. It's time to relax, refuel and wind down.

Dinner - Will consist of protein and fat (Yay!). A couple of hours after your post-workout shake, it's time for your final meal of the day. Lowery will typically have more fat at this meal than at any other. That's because as a fuel, fat appears to be preferable to carbs at this time. The insulin-carbohydrate system isn't working as well late in the day. Plus, his daily dietary variety is increased by including healthy fats, and he's had little of them up until now.

A vegetable stir fry with chicken or steak will hit the spot, along with a green salad, lightly dressed. The protein and fat in the meal, along with the fiber in the veggies will help you feel full until you fall asleep-which will probably be very soon, considering how hard you've worked. Buona Notte
