Post-Workout Nutrition: Why You Should Care
In general, post-workout nutrition is probably the most important part of our diet. When you finish training, you're tired and hungry. Your body needs fuel, building materials and vitamins and minerals, and you should look for post-workout eating options that provide this. Try to select based on your goals: if you're trying to put on muscle your post-workout snack should be large and contain a lot of protein, for instance. People trying to lose fat should eat a smaller snack post-workout, but make sure you plan to eat something. If you don't, you'll just end up eating something unplanned!
