Thanks to all who replied to my last post with advice and encouragement. greatly appreciated.
Like i stated before, i started my new lifestyle change on March 1st. Just been going out walking every morning. Doing 4 miles everyday so far. I can feel my calf muscles for sure. Will walk every day until i get my bike, hopefully 3 weeks from now.
Been trying to research energy bars and protein shakes. The store i went to today, had a ton of different bars. I don't know where to start, so wanted to come here and ask all you people for your advice. I am learning on the back, it says either before, during or after. I know you need the ones with a lot of carbs for during. I feel fine the first 2 miles of walking, after that i feel, not so fine lol.
I need your advice on what namebrand bars i should buy to help myself during exercise, with it be walking or bike riding. Some bars have a lot of carbs, some have a lot of protein. Should i buy the powdered protein stuff and drink a protein shake after exercising? I read that was good for the muscles.
I have been eating breakfast after i get back home from walking, is this ok? Or is there a bar i can eat before starting?
Sorry for all the questions, i am new to fitness and want to do it right. I am eating healthy foods and have cut my portions in half. But i still get the late night munchies. Thank You all for your help, advice and encouragement. It is greatly appreciated.
