What to Eat After You Work Out

Refuel and Recover with a Post-Workout Meal or Snack


  • Really? White bread? Chocolate milk? Call me crazy but I easily maintain my normal weight by exercising on an empty stomach, eating a low crab/grain/high fat whole foods diet and drinking water post-workout. I fuel my body with healthy fats and steer clear of "low-fat" and packaged GF foods. - 10/7/2015 10:23:39 AM

  • I think for me the reality check is how many calories did I burn. I'm always surprised when what I think was a great workout only burned a few hundred calories... so using the 50% rule it means a pretty small post work out snack! However I admit I rarely eat post work out.. wait for a meal. So.... I'll keep thinking about the little snacks like an apple with peanut butter or some carrots and humus... - 9/6/2015 6:59:53 AM

    My main exercise time is 40-80 mins walking and this is usually sometime between 8pm & 10pm. A handful of mixed nuts should suffice, I'm guessing? - 6/23/2015 12:05:42 PM
  • I eat after my noon cardio, usually a sandwich of eggs or peanut butter. I do not eat after my evening cardio...I am not hungry then. - 2/25/2015 9:42:59 AM
