Hello everybody and welcome to the performance for life show. I'm your host Giber Becerra a.k.a GG the rockstar of fitness and performance where we help you to unleash that elite athlete within before a race, match or guess what your most important game, the game of everyday life. That’s right. So, for today we find ourselves here at P4L, HQ. That is performance for life headquarters. That’s right. We have headquarters and we’re going to talk about today is a very, very important theme. Now today’s episode is not an actual workout where we’re exercising. Sometimes, we got to slower down a little bit and just give you a little bit of a talk. Not a very long talk but a very important one because usually I get athletes and/or just non-athletes that you know that I'm working with. And uppers, you know when working with them, the y come in and they’re really asking me you know what will they have for breakfast. And 90% of the time, they tell me that they had nothing for breakfast because we usually take them once. So, wrong answer, very, very important for you guys to get something in your belly. I know some people are not very hungry when they wake up, it doesn’t matter. Get something in your belly. It’s important because I will tell what, well let’s say go to bed at 10:00 at night. Okay, you could be a little later than that. It could be earlier than that. Okay, everybody is different. And when you get up at 6:00 or 7:00 in the morning and that’s a lot of hours that your body is pretty much fasting. That’s why breakfast obviously it’s called breakfast because you got break a fast immediately, okay? So, let’s say for example you did not have breakfast. You go out and workout. There’s more acid accumulating your stomach. You don’t want that and plus, you need some fuel to keep you go on to get the best workout possible. So, very, very important I cannot over emphasize that enough. It’s very important that you get a good breakfast and whatnot let’s say you're running out of time. You don’t have the luxury to have a whole breakfast. That’s fine. Get a quick snack. Get a good snack of fruit, just like a banana. It could be a protein shake. You can actually prepare yourself some protein shake. Now ladies, this is not going to hurt you. It’s not going to create volume on you, okay? Because I know somebody is a little skeptical about these types of things because you don’t want to get volume on this and that. You're not going to get the volume, okay? It could be also the Rs of D or the rates of—let’s say you're a little bit lazy. You want to just grab something to go, okay which is usually what I do. Okay, for me when I'm doing a workout. I put mine all the time. I do this. I don’t have time to prepare the full shake or anything like that. I just grab it on the go, you know, open it up and that’s it. Okay, this is very, very important now. In addition to that, okay you obviously getting your snack in this and that. Right after you workout, it’s important. Well, not important. It’s essential, it is crucial that within the next 10 to 20 minutes right after you workout, you put something in your belly, okay? You put something in your stomach that is in the form of a protein shake, some sort of snack. I usually recommend a protein shake because it just get’s into your system a lot faster. And again, I just recommend these types of solutions. It gets the job done with some I suppose not. This is not going to supplement or this is not a substitute for a regular meal, all right? This is just pretty much a supplement to your nutrition. Obviously, nothing substitutes for a good nutrition for good meal. So, again very, very important do your course workout shake. It’s crucial to optimize your recovery process that’s essential. Now, a lot of people just say “you know I don’t know how to take some protein shake because you know I'm going to get volume”, that’s not the point. The point is that we want to recover your body as fats as possible and get
