Post Workout Snacks/Drinks for evenings/nights?


Quote  |  Reply

Due to a very tight schedule, I can only workout after my toddler goes to bed and after cleaning up & preparing for the next day's meals. Realistically it does not start until 9 or 9:30 pm every night and typically would last for 1 to 1.5 hrs. It'll be bedtime by the time I get done.

What's a good post workout & pre-bedtime snack/drink would do you suggest (enough for muscle recovery after doing calisthenics or HIIT)?

Thanks in advance!

Chocolate milk.

Hot coco

Bananna with teaspoon nutella

Anything with a mix of protein and carbs? Chocolate milk, yogurt, cheese and crackers, a protein bar?

I usually blend a banana, protein shake and soy milk but what I noticed lately is that I'm hungry upon waking up in the morning. This is eating over 2,500 calories per day. Do you think it will hurt to add another fruit or crackers with this?

Is this a problem?

Typically, I'm able to manage not to eat breakfast from 6 am until 8:30 am (that's when I get to work). Now as soon as I get up at 6 am, I feel like I had not eaten all night.

But........you haven't eaten all night, Have you?

I have/do. Big dinner at 6:30 pm (500 to 700 calories), then workout from 9 to 10:30 pm, then protein shake with soymilk and a cup of fruit immediately after workout - which is why I don't understand why I am so hungry upon waking up in the morning.

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
