What To Eat After Running ?

Β 

A follow up to the very successful β€œWhat To Eat Before Going Running?”..

(Click Here)Β 

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.Β 

Β 

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..Β 

Β 

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

Β 

Here Are My 6Β  Di Nutritional Choices..Β 

Β 

Watermelon

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

Β 

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

Β 

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

Β 

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.

Β 

WaterΒ 

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

Β 

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

Β 

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

Β 

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

Β 

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

Β 

Banana

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

Β 

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.

Β 

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

Β 

High Fibre Cereals & Milk

Now if you read the β€œWhat To Eat Before Going Running?” (Click Here)

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

they’re bad for your tummy (Gassy).Β 

Β 

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!

Β 

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

Β 

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.Β 

Β 

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 recoveryΒ and refills our energy.Β 

Β 

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

Β 

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

Β 

Turkey Sandwich (No White Bread)

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

Β 

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

Β 

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

Β 

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

Β 

THAT’S IT!Β 

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

Β 

Which Of The Six Will You Try First?

Are You Ready To Switch From White Bread To Whole-Grain?Β
