Peanut butter benefits for Gym
I started peanut butter for the gym for mostly the high protein and calorie it provides. I was also looking for the best peanut butter for weight gain since I am skinny. Combination of all natural protein and calorie was enticing.
And I liked the taste also thus I always use peanut butter as a source of healthy protein.
- Peanut butter benefits 1 for Gym: Affordable yet good quality protein for students, amateurs, fitness pros and everyone who wants to eat healthy and stay fit. You can even spend a lot on peanuts if you do not want to buy peanut butter for the gym in India.
- Peanut butter benefits 2 for Gym: High calorie, not for typical weight loss plan but peanut butter for weight gain is a right choice. When the calorie is coming from all natural ingredients then you can be sure to gain healthy weights. Also the high calorie helps lifting more weights in the gym.
- Peanut butter benefits 3 for Gym: Good fat 🙂 Not all fat are created equal and peanut butter has all the good fat you will ever need. The unsaturated fats help negate heart disease. Can help lower cholesterol.
- Peanut butter benefits 4 for Gym: Can mix in shakes, Oats etc. I am used to have it with Oats and milk in the mornings. I also use it on rooti and breads. It is a multipurpose high protein healthy food for gym goers in India.
- Peanut butter benefits 5 for Gym: With all these calories and unsaturated fat it might seem that it is not for people who are into weight loss diet. But the fibre in peanut butter can keep you full for long time and the good fat can stop you gain more weight. Yes, it does not have a tons of fibres but you can use it in the food you like and reap the benefits.
Peanut butter before or after workout
Peanut butter before workout
Before workout you need a dose of carbohydrate for energy and a dash of balanced protein. And peanut butter can easily fill this part with bread, oats and in a shake with fruits and milk. This can also be turned into a weight gaining shake. With peanut butter you get protein, calorie, carbs that help you build up the energy for the workout ahead.
There will always be pre workout drinks and whey protein but you will need some real food before you work your arse off in the gym.
But do not just eat spoons of peanut butter before your workout. Peanut butter is not that carbohydrate dense neither so much protein dense. You have to mix it up with other food.
Peanut butter after workout
Unless you want to gain weight then you can skip peanut butter after workout. Peanut butter is dense in calorie thus after workout if you want your body to use the existing aft storage then you can consider not eating peanut butter or any other fat rich food.
You should get some post workout drink that has protein, preferably whey and has electrolytes. Also carbs would be good 🙂
On the other hand if you are into gaining weight like me then you can snack on peanut butter, whey and any other carbohydrate source as you please.
And drink plenty of water in both cases.
