Junk food as a fitness junky.

I guess it’s best to start right away on the topic of Junk food consumption, as a fitness junky. I would like to make clear, that I am not a big fan of junk food or, in general, an unbalanced diet. Because, as a fitness-motivated person, everyone should take care and ensure to have a balanced diet. In order to make sure that the positive effects of the training really occur and not be torn down by an unhealthy diet.

But what about sweets?

But now on the subject of sweets such as Haribo Gummy Bears and Fitness. With thees I see a small advantage for training at a certain time of the day. Especially after a hard and strenuous workout, the Gummy bears are perfectly suited as a perfect post Workout snack after a workout. As they have lots of highly digested carbohydrates, which fuel your body after a workout.

Avoid cravings.

Yes, of course, whoever eats lots of this little gold bears, ultimately ensures that he adds unnecessary calories and will probably gain weight in the long run. In addition, of course, one also runs the risk of having bad cravings or hunger attacks, due to the rapid insulin emission by the Haribo’s. Which will make you feel hungry again. Meaning you end up eating even more.

The timing makes the difference.

But as already said, I consider the gummy bears still as useful at certain times as after the training. Because especially here after the workout, the body needs fast carbohydrates to fill its own glycogen stores. Because these are used up over the time of training. Which is also the reason why we feel so energetic after a hard and strenuous workout. So there you have a perfect fit for Gummy bears post Workout.

Cheaper and more delicious.

In Bodybuilding circles, many use fast-digestible industrial sugars such as dextrose powder or maltodextrin for such purposes. These are relatively easy to buy from most large supplement sellers. Normally, you simply mix this powder into your post workout shake to ensure that the blood sugar level rises again and the glycogen stores are really filled.

Gummy bears after training, the delicious alternative.

But this is exactly where I think you can do without and simply eat sweets such as gummy bears. But it is also important to make sure that you really use sweets, which are mostly made up of sugar in order not to eat unnecessary fat.

Haribo gummy bears and fitness just perfect for each other.

And that’s where the Haribo gummy bears come into the game. Because Haribo’s gummy bears are almost made of glucose syrup and sugar. They fit perfectly. Which is also the reason why even many successful bodybuilders still make use of the little gummy bears post workout
