Post Workout Food

What to eat after a workout? It’s time to really think about what you’re eating because your food choices can make all the difference to your performance as an athlete. Let’s take a look at why some food is better for you at different times, particularly your post workout meals.

Want to maximize the benefits of your workout?

Choosing the right food to eat after working out is essential. Otherwise, much of your hard work will go to waste. Carbohydrates are the most important fuel for athletes, especially endurance athletes, and they are depleted during workouts.

We all have a “gas tank” of stored carbohydrates in the form of glycogen present in our muscles and liver. After a hard workout, we need to re-fuel this tank and studies show that consuming protein with carbohydrate can improve recovery times.

Was your workout low or high intensity?
