Eating before and after you work out is crucial for a number of reasons. If you are looking for new post-workout snack ideas to help your body recover after grueling exercise sessions now that you’re taking Phentermine 37.5mg, consider any of the following ideas.
“A to-go box of 1% chocolate milk is ideal for post-workout recovery. It provides just the right ratio of protein to carbohydrates to replenish energy stores and facilitate muscle tissue repair. The convenience factor is also a plus because refueling within 30 minutes of a challenging workout is necessary to reap optimal benefits.” — Cedric Bryant Ph.D.
“Green grapes make a great on-the-go post-workout snack. They’re a good source of electrolytes, which help maintain fluid balance and muscle function. Freeze a handful of grapes in a Zip-Lock bag, and pop them after a workout for a quick, refreshing frozen treat.” — Jay Cardiello, fitness and nutrition expert
Tuna Taco Rollups
“When I have time to prep food ahead of time, I’ll take a small can of tuna and mix it with four ounces of nonfat Greek yogurt, lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper, and put the mixture into a Tupperware container. I’ll pack that along with a low-carb tortilla and assemble the roll-up right before I want to eat it. This snack provides fast-digesting carbs and a full serving of protein, so it’s perfect for a post-workout meal. Most importantly, I enjoy it!” — Victoria Viola, PN Certified Nutrition Coach, NSCA CPT
Bananas & Almond Butter
“After a long, hard workout I enjoy a delicious banana with almond butter. Bananas are low in calories but still offer a good deal of potassium, an electrolyte lost during exercise, and enough carbs to replenish energy stores. The almond butter provides about 10 grams of protein to help muscle recovery, some salt for electrolyte balance and healthy fats for brain health. This snack is also easy to take with you anywhere!” — Dr. Sean M. Wells, DPT, PT, OCS, ATC/L
Acai & Blueberry Fruit Salad
“After long runs (90 + minutes), I like to recover with a bowl of Acai and blueberries. I used to live in Brazil, and everyone would eat this after training and I got into it in a big way. The acai berry tastes amazing and is full of antioxidants and amino acids that aid recovery and both fruits provide carbs and help replenish glycogen stores.” — Dan Roberts, author of the fashion model workout, Methodology X
