After a workout

Post by Konqwest » 25 Apr 2007, 00:26

What is the best thing to eat after a work out?

Usually after I lift I eat some pasta etc. But after I run I just get massive cravings for sugar, and ice cream mostly...anyone else?

You should eat protein after all your workouts. It helps build your muscles.

Complex Carbs (whole wheat bread, pasta)
Proteins (Fish, Red Meat,--dont go to KFC--)
Fruits&Veggies (Bananas,etc)

Snacks: Nutrition Bars/trail mix,bananas,and other fruits,veggies

Don't eat a big meal right after your workout. Keep it between 300-500 calories...
