It would be nice to include dates in the list of those foods that you consume after physical exertion. Dates are a high glycemic index food (it simply contains many carbohydrates). This means that the use of dates will contribute to the faster absorption of protein by muscle cells.

Remember also that high glycemic food is consumed only in the post-workout meal, while low glycemic foods (vegetables, fish, meat, unsweetened dairy products) are consumed for the remainder of the meal.
So, the next time you go to the store, be sure to put these products in your basket. Let them take the place in your diet that used to belong to sausages, smoked meats, pizza and french fries.
