It is good to eat up to 10 g. of protein within 30 min. If working out. My favorite way to do that is to eat low calorie string cheese. It has 9g of protein and is not only low in calories, it is portable in your workout bag and helps cool you down. I also use it to get in sufficient calcium during the day and no carbs involved.4
It is much easier to say no to junk food snacks and fast food if you don't let yourself get to the "starving" point. Make sure you eat small snacks in between your meals and never let yourself get overly hungry. Your brain does not think rationally when your blood sugar drops and your stomach is growling like a monster, and all you want is junk food. Keep this from happening by snacking on a regular basis and it becomes much easier to make the right choices.
