While nuts are high in protein, they're also really high in fat. Be sure to eat them only before your workout. They help to sustain energy and helps you last longer throughout the workout.
2. Fatty meats
Fatty meats like bacon and certain cuts of beef can slow down your metabolism rate and cause your body's fat burning ability to slow down.
That's what caffeine does - refuel you - right? Kind of, but not after a workout - a cuppa will only cause your body to bloat more.
Alcohol has the same effect as coffee. Plus, the sugar found in most alcoholic beverages simply undoes all that effort that you put in at the gym.
5. Oily foods
This one's pretty clear. Oily foods slow down your body's digestion rate rapidly. Skip the oils so you don't cancel out the calories you just burned.
