Should I eat before or after I workout? And what?

While eating after exercise is important, some examination has demonstrated that it may not be important to eat the second you complete the process of working out.
The good news is you have 8-24 hours after your activity. You don't have to eat immediately! You can take as much time as you need after your workout to eat.
If you don't eat before your workout, eat at your earliest convenience after completing your exercise.

What to Eat After You Workout

The essential objective of your post-exercise meal is to supply your body with the correct supplements for sufficient recuperation and to boost the advantages of your exercise.

Here are some ideas of things to eat:


  • Sweet potatoes
  • Chocolate milk
  • Quinoa
  • Fruits (pineapple, berries, banana, kiwi)
  • Rice cakes
  • Rice
  • Oatmeal
  • Potatoes
  • Pasta

  • Greek yogurt
  • Cottage cheese
  • Salmon
  • Chicken
  • Protein bar
  • Tuna


  • Nuts
  • Nut butters
  • Trail mix (dried fruits and nuts)
  • Avocado

Here are a couple of ideas for fast and simple meals to eat after your exercise:

  • Grilled chicken with roasted vegetables.
  • Egg omelet with avocado spread on toast.
  • Salmon with sweet potato.
  • Tuna salad sandwich on whole grain bread.
  • Cottage cheese and fruits.
  • Pita and hummus.
  • Rice crackers and peanut butter.

Getting supplements in the hours around exercise is significant. On the off chance that you don't eat before exercise, attempt to eat not long after exercise. Eating protein can help fix your muscles and different tissues, while carbs can help reestablish your glycogen stores.
