The most important meal you cant eat, besides from breakfast of course, is the one you eat after your workout. This is because for about an hour after your workout, there’s a period of time when your muscles are literally starving for nutrients, and the meal you eat at this time is crucial for building muscle and replenishing energy sources.
Here are the best things you could eat after a workout–
PROTEIN (repair and growth for muscles) and AMINO ACIDS (the building blocks for protein)

We all have that soft spot for sugar, some of us more than others. Because these sweet treats are so delicious, it’s hard to pass them up. And even when were not presented with them, they still manage to linger in our minds. Here are ways to finally but an end to your sugar craving and have you feeling healthier and happier.
Good nutrition. A healthy body is a happy one, and if you’re going to try to get rid of a sugar habit you need healthy food! Statistics show that individuals who switch up their diets end up craving healthier sweets like strawberries and melon rather than junk food that can loose its appeal.
Stop feeding the fire! This won’t be easy but try to stop eating it completely for at at least a week, and stick to it. Even though dietary changes are usually gradual, sugar tends to inspire cravings which are refueled every time you give in.
Limit sweets in the house. You don’t need to eliminate all of the goodies – I like to keep a bar of sea salt dark chocolate in the freezer for ultimate chocolate cravings. But do toss the processed junk food, sugar flooded cereals, and switch out ice cream for frozen yogurt if you can! Continue reading
Diane von Furstenberg. The name brings up many different images, from her iconic wrap dress to her timeless lines of today; DVF is truly an icon, an inspiration and a fashion mogul. It would only be suiting that she extend her gift to design such stylish and chic clothing for not only women but, little girls! Gap Kids and DVF might seem like an unlikely pair but the two have come together to create a fun and trendy little girls line for a “like mother like daughter” feel. She uses her signature silhouettes and recognizable prints to create a line that really embodies the “mini me” heir of mother and daughter.
