Most men and women workout and then eat all of those calories back afterwards. Why? Well, we overestimate how many calories our bodies burn off and underestimate how much food we actually consume.
Nobody needs an after-workout snack, but if you just have to have something to eat, try one of these nutritious snacks to make you feel better. As I said that you don't actually need a snack, perhaps you should schedule your workouts before one of your main meals instead, and then use on of these "snacks" as the starting point for your breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Combine 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and a sliced apple.
If you are allergic or avoiding peanut butter (yes, I am looking at you weird Paleo folks), then use cashew or almond or sunflower seed butter.
Choose 1/4 cup trail mix, preferably one without chocolate. And preferably one that is full of seeds. Seeds are loaded with magnesium, a mineral that you might be deficient in...and something you need to maintain energy!
Eat a vegetable omelet. Load two eggs with chopped bell pepper, avocado, asparagus, spinach and a sprinkle of cheddar.
