What To Eat After Your Workout

Most people fall into the common trap of thinking it's okay to eat anything and everything because they've worked out.  

Because you are hungry after a workout, it's easy to eat more than you really need.  

A good guideline is to stay within the 200 to 300 calorie range for  post-workout snacks.  Your body needs carbs and protein after working out.  Here are some good post-workout snacks:
  • whole grain bread, bagel or muffin with peanut butter and low sugar jam
  • dried fruits and raw nuts
  • low fat cottage cheese and fruit
  • whole grain cereal and low fat milk
  • veggie omelet with lite cheese
  • turkey sandwich with mustard, lettuce and tomato
  • energy bar
