Fuel Up: Post-Workout

Posted on July 16, 2016 by Deb Hart

After Your Workout


The post-workout meal/snack helps to replenish the glycogen that has been depleted during exercise and speeds muscle recovery (especially after weight training). Try to eat 20-30 minutes after working out. If you are doing heavy weight training and your goal is to increase muscle mass, you may need to slightly increase your protein goal. Check with your Barix Clinics nutritionist for your individual goal.

Post-workout Meal/Snack Ideas

  • The other ½ of your pre-workout fruit and/or veggie smoothie with a scoop of Greek yogurt or protein powder
  • 1 to 2 eggs with a slice of whole wheat toast
  • Tuna salad and veggies with a ½ whole wheat pita
  • A veggie omelet with vegetables and avocado
  • Broiled fish and baked sweet potato or steamed veggies
  • Grilled chicken breast and stir fry veggies
