Post-Workout Snacks for Lean, Mean, Calorie-Burning Machines (You!) 0
You may be killing it in the gym, but are you eating properly to support those tough workouts? What and when you eat after you exercise helps determine your recovery. Eating within an hour of finishing your activity helps your muscles recover fast and allows your energy stores to replenish faster. The results, such as lowering injury risk and feeling better at your next workout, let you lose more weight.
The ideal post-workout snacks provide protein for your muscles and carbohydrates for your energy stores. They need to be convenient and ready-to-eat or quick-cooking so you can eat them as soon as possible after finishing your exercise, even when you are at the gym or hurrying back to work. The BariatricPal Store has great-tasting post-workout snacks you can look forward to each day.
The promise of FlapJacked Mighty Probiotic Muffins as your post-workout snack may be enough to get you through your workout. These muffins are so delicious that you will forget that you are eating them for their health benefits, including protein, fiber, and gut-healthy probiotics. Each one has about 20 grams of protein, 200 calories, 20 grams of carbohydrates, and 5 grams of fiber. Flavors include Chocolate Peanut Butter, S’mores, Cinnamon Apple, Maple Pumpkin, and so many more!
Peanut butter is naturally rich in protein and fiber, but why deal with all of the calories when you can opt for Peanut Butter Powder instead? Each serving has 6 grams of protein, but only 40 calories, compared to 190 calories in a serving of regular peanut butter! Just mix it with water to turn it into a peanut butter spread to have with apples, a whole-grain piece of toast, or celery sticks, or add it to your favorite smoothie recipe. Choose from Original and Chocolate flavors. Each jar has 15 servings.
Grab a healthy snack...such as potato chips! BariatricPal Protein Chips have 10 grams of protein and 14 to 16 grams of carbohydrates to show your body some love after a tough workout. These chips also have 5 grams of fiber, which is extra important after exercising because exercise boosts appetite and can lead to overeating to compensate. Choose from Barbecue Crunch, Ranch Crunch, and Sea Salt and Vinegar Crunch, to get the flavors you love without the extra starches and fats. They come in single bags, 7-pack boxes, and cases of 80 bags.
If you are looking for some of the world’s healthiest carb sources to refuel your body, Detour Smart Gluten-Free Protein Bars answer the call. They have 150 calories and their first ingredient is organic whole-grain oats, which are known for their heart-healthy properties. They have 10 grams of high-quality protein and have fiber from a prebiotic known as inulin. These bars are as delicious as they sound, with flavors including Blueberry, Banana Nut, Coconut, Cookie Dough, and Apple, and a yogurt coating.
Treat your body right so it can continue to perform for you and be a strong, calorie-burning machine to help you reach your weight loss goals. These post-workout snacks and more at The BariatricPal Store can help.
