In a recent interview with Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show, renowned nutritionist Paul Akapanga from the Upper East Region has voiced his apprehension regarding post-exercise meals. 

Mr. Akapanga emphasised the need for individuals interested in fitness to approach their exercise routines with caution, particularly when it comes to their dietary choices after workouts. He cautioned against overwhelming meal portions and issued a stern warning against the consumption of alcoholic beverages, such as beer, in post-exercise meals.

Drawing from his expertise in health and fitness, Mr. Akapanga underscored the importance of considering the nutritional composition of meals consumed following physical activity. He stressed that such meals should be carefully curated to support the body’s recovery process and optimize the benefits of exercise. While acknowledging the desire for indulgence, he cautioned against overeating, as it can undermine the positive impact of exercise and potentially lead to adverse health effects.

Furthermore, Mr. Akapanga highlighted the detrimental effects of alcoholic beverages on post-workout recovery. He explained that alcohol consumption can interfere with the body’s ability to replenish vital nutrients, impede muscle repair, and hinder overall recovery. In light of these concerns, he urged fitness enthusiasts to abstain from alcoholic beverages, opting for hydrating and nutrient-dense alternatives instead.

With his extensive knowledge in nutrition and physical well-being, Mr. Akapanga’s insights serve as a crucial reminder for individuals to approach their exercise routines holistically, considering both physical exertion and post-workout nutrition. His expert advice not only encourages caution and moderation but also raises awareness about the potential pitfalls associated with poor dietary choices after exercising, ultimately promoting a healthier and more informed approach to fitness.

“Whenever you exercise and then you burn the energy, it’s like you have depleted something that needs to be refilled. So when you sit down by your food and it is a lot of carbohydrate, a lot of meat and alcohol and all that, and care is not taken, at the end of the day, because you are not doing it with guidance, you would consume more than you should have consumed and the exercise would have been for naught. As foro alcohol, it is a no-no,” he said.
