What To Eat After Running ?

 

A follow up to the very successful “What To Eat Before Going Running?”..

(Click Here) 

Whether or not you enjoy running for your weight loss goals, fun, or competitively, it’s a great way to get your heart racing and healthy. 

 

It’s a great way to get into working out and a step up from walking. A lot is made of what we eat before running to fuel us, but more must be said about what we eat afterwards because it’s just as important.. 

 

Different foods can offer different benefits so of course I will be talking about those for weight loss. 

 

Here Are My 6  Di Nutritional Choices.. 

 

Watermelon

Watermelon is a great summer pick but of course you can have it anytime you like.

 

Watermelon has few calories and is a good source of Citrulline and Lycopene.. which are both plant compounds. 

 

These two compounds help when you are tired and help relieve your muscles when they become sore after running. 

 

Also if you did not know, Watermelon contains 91% water by weight, so this is a good source of water and will rehydrate after you’ve been running.

 

Water 

It’s important that we drink water all the time, (Click Here) so after running is no different. 

 

When we exercise we lose a lot of water, so we drink water after we workout. 

 

Water loss increases if the physical activity is done outdoors on a really hot/humid day.

 

To maintain hydration I advise you drink before, during and after you go running. 

 

Ice cold is my fav to drink after a run  but you drink how you feel.  

 

Banana

Banana is a great source of potassium, an electrolyte that is often eaten after a sweaty run. 

 

This is also great to pack and eat on the go because it has its own protective skin on it and a lot of you Di1’s love Bananas, so please go ahead and eat them.

 

Bananas also helps you avoid muscle cramps and stop you from feeling fatigue during your run (Aids it!)

 

High Fibre Cereals & Milk

Now if you read the “What To Eat Before Going Running?” (Click Here)

Then you’ll know that I said to avoid fibre foods because 

they’re bad for your tummy (Gassy). 

 

The thing is though, after you’ve run you can eat high fibre foods and high fibre cereal.. so that’s not trash like Coco-puffs or Frosties!

 

It’s more like Porridge, Weetabix, Branflakes & Fruit & Fibre. 

 

This is great to eat if you’re doing a morning run or having this as a pre breakfast or snack.. as it does not matter if you’re not a Di1 that can cook. 

 

Chocolate Milk

Chocolate Is a great drink to have after a workout, it’s loaded with protein and carbs that are fast digesting which helps our recovery and refills our energy. 

 

Make sure that the Chocolate milk is low in fat and has a low sugar content in grams.

 

If it’s really really sweet it’s no good and is nearly as bad as those energy drinks that are just bottles of added sugar.  

 

Turkey Sandwich (No White Bread)

Turkey breast is a source of protein which is low in calories.

 

Add this with some whole-wheat bread, which provides complex carbs..

 

This will be released into your bloodstream and at a slower rate than its counterpart which is trash.. White bread  (Click Here) 

 

A slice or two of healthy fat will help you stay fuller for longer after your run also. 

 

THAT’S IT! 

 I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys. Please do let me know though…
