If you’re attempting to lose weight, post workout meals or snacks are an important aspect of your diet. After a taxing workout, select something to eat that has the right mix of healthy carbohydrates and protein to replenish your body. It is wise to select low calorie foods that will keep you satisfied, post workout. In the following video, you’ll learn what to eat after a workout for weight loss.

To determine which foods can be beneficial after exercising, it’s vital to know how physical activity impacts your body. To acquire fuel during exercise, your muscles use up stored glycogen. This causes your muscles to be somewhat glycogen-depleted. Several proteins in your muscles also get damaged.

At the end of your workout, your body endeavors to recreate its storage of glycogen and rebuild the broken-down muscle proteins. Consuming the proper nutrition sources right after you finish working out can speed up this process. It’s crucial to consume protein and carbs post-workout.
The Following Foods are Most Recommended After You Exercise

The first meal should be consumed 30 to 60 minutes after you exercise, which can consist of:

Smoothies Dairy products such as yogurt and milk are twice as effective, as they offer both carbs and protein. Bananas are full of magnesium and potassium, which are essential for optimal muscle functionality. Make a smoothie comprised of protein powder, your choice of fruit, low-fat frozen yogurt, or low-fat milk to offer your body with what it needs to recover (and satisfy your sweet tooth in the process).

Protein Shake Combine whey protein or vegan powder with carb rich foods, like juices, milk, and shakes, as well as some extras like fruit and peanut butter. When consumed after a powerful exercise session, your energy will be restored, your immune system will be boosted, and your body fat will be burned.

Whole-Wheat Tuna Sandwich You can get full from eating just half of a sandwich, and get the nutrition your body requires in the process. The mix of the lean-protein tuna and the complex-carb bread will offer a balanced mix of vitamins, fiber, and minerals. To add some flavor to the sandwich, pour in some olive oil or lemon juice, both of which are low in calories.

Eggs An egg is a complete source of protein. Regardless of how you like them – scrambled, poached, sunny side up, or over easy – eggs are comprised of essential omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, and vitamin D, which alleviates muscle damage. As a versatile food, eggs can be eaten with onions, peppers, avocado, lean turkey, or toast.

Consider making the following meals after your workout:

• Cottage cheese and fruit.
• Scrambled eggs with onions, spinach, mushrooms, and bell peppers.
• Avocado and egg omelet.
• Salmon and sweet potato.
• Whole grain cereal with skim milk.
• Sweet potato (mashed) with chicken.
• Oatmeal, whey protein, and almonds.
