In last week’s tip I discussed the top five foods for before a workout. Just as important as what you eat and drink before a workout is what you eat and drink AFTER a workout.

Click for the entire list

During exercise, especially an intensive training regimen, the body uses up a lot of its stored energy. That is why it is so important to refuel after a workout with foods and beverages that will help replenish the nutrients you may have lost during your routine.
Replacing those nutrients requires at least a fundamental knowledge of which ones might have been used up so that you know what needs to be replaced.

I am listing below five of the top foods you can consume before a workout and five of the top foods you can consume after a workout.
