What To Eat After Running ?

ย 

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

(Click Here)ย 

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

ย 

Itโ€™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 itโ€™s just as important..ย 

ย 

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

ย 

Here Are My 6ย  Di Nutritional Choices..ย 

ย 

Watermelon

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

ย 

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

ย 

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

ย 

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

ย 

Waterย 

Itโ€™s important that we drink water all the time, (Click Here) so after running is no different.ย 

ย 

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

ย 

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

ย 

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

ย 

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

ย 

Banana

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

ย 

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 Di1โ€™s love Bananas, so please go ahead and eat them.

ย 

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

ย 

High Fibre Cereals & Milk

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

Then youโ€™ll know that I said to avoid fibre foods becauseย 

theyโ€™re bad for your tummy (Gassy).ย 

ย 

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

ย 

Itโ€™s more like Porridge, Weetabix, Branflakes & Fruit & Fibre.ย 

ย 

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

ย 

Chocolate Milk

Chocolate Is a great drink to have after a workout, itโ€™s loaded with protein and carbs that are fast digesting which helps our recoveryย and refills our energy.ย 

ย 

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

ย 

If itโ€™s really really sweet itโ€™s no goodย and is nearly as bad as those energy drinks that are just bottles of added sugar.ย ย 

ย 

Turkey Sandwich (No White Bread)

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

ย 

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

ย 

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

ย 

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

ย 

THATโ€™S IT!ย 

ย I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys. Please do let me know thoughโ€ฆย
