Foods You Should Eat After a Workout

TAMPA, Fla. - Feb. 26, 2021 - PRLog -- A diet rich in protein and complex carbohydrates is essential for building lean muscle and losing excess fat. Proper nutrition requires some basic knowledge, discipline, and consistency. When you work out, the stress of weight lifting damages muscle fibers.

These food items are rich in nutrients, minerals, and vitamins, which will strengthen your immunity and provide you with energy.

Eating a healthy, balanced diet is important not only for your physical health but also for your mental health, especially now that we are spending so much time at home.

Here's a few categories you should stock up on…

Fruit and Vegetables...

Whether eaten as a snack or as a part of meals, it is always good to have fresh fruit and vegetables on hand. Fruits and vegetables contain complex carbohydrates,  slowly releasing energy gradually instead of spiking it like sugar does.

Green vegetables such as broccoli and spinach, contain B vitamins, which are important for your brain and mood balancing hormones like serotonin, and dopamine. Citrus fruits are particularly good for you as it is high in vitamin C and is a good source of fiber.

Citrus fruits also increase the production of white blood cells and are vital in fighting infections. Grapes, apples, kiwi, melons, corn cobs, and mixed salad bowls, have a high water content, which keeps you full and satisfied longer.

Fruits and vegetables rich in fiber such as raw vegetable crudités, baby carrots, and cucumber slices, can also keep you fuller for longer.

Whole Grains is next on the list…

And while there are bad grains (refined)...good grains (whole) are packed with nutrition. Refined grains have a finer texture and a longer shelf life. Unfortunately the refining process  also strips them of dietary fiber, iron, and many B vitamins.

Refined grains include food like white flour, white bread, and white rice. Whole grains, on the other hand, contain the entire grain kernel which is the bran, germ, and endosperm.

Whole-wheat flour, oatmeal, and brown rice are considered whole-grain foods. Eating the right amount of whole grains in a meal, not only is packed with a lot of nutrients but also keeps you from feeling sluggish.
