Foods that are best after work out.

I have learned that what you eat right after your workout could be even more important than what you eat during the day. According to a dietitian, the best post-workout meals combine water, a moderate amount of protein and complex carbohydrates. Our body uses sugar to fuel the workout, so after the workout, we need to replenish the sugar we have burned.

Here are some of the foods that are best to consume after working out.

• Energy bar with the lowest amount of sugar. You could also try a protein-rich nut butter bar.
• Choose a salty snack that is cheese flavored and with high in protein and fiver punch with some sodium for it helps to replenish what lost in sweat.
• Go for whole- grain, oatmeal or buckwheat pancake toppings like bananas, blueberries, and strawberries, or toast a whole-grain frozen waffle and serve with nut butter and a few banana slices.
• A piece of whole-wheat toast with peanut butter.
• Eat broiled egg than fried egg.
• Get your protein from lean meat and chicken (minus the skin). Try a fresh chicken sandwich with lettuce, tomato and mustard.
 • Avoid soda and other fruit drinks for these are very high in sugar.
