Getting plenty of exercise can leave your body ravenous. However, loading up on the wrong foods can undo much of the good that your workout has done. Thankfully, there are many amazing foods that are able to help your body take full advantage of all your hard work. Here are the best foods to eat after a workout.


Almonds are the perfect snack to refuel with after a workout because they're high in leucine. Leucine is an essential amino acid that is will give you energy and help to keep your muscle protein from breaking down so that your body can take full advantage of the exercise you do.

Brown Rice

Brown rice is high in good carbohydrates. These carbs will keep your body from having to draw on its stores of glycogen to refuel your body. Try eating brown rice will some healthy steamed vegetables. Brown rice also contains manganese and selenium .


Tuna is a great way to feed your body the lean protein in needs to help your body become more toned.Light canned tuna is also extremely low in calories, so you won't risk consuming as many calories as you have burned. Tuna is also a great source of niacin, selenium, vitamin B6, potassium, and thiamin.


Avocado is full of good monounsaturated fats. Eating it after you've burned away fat exercising is a great way to replace bad fats with better ones. Avocado is also rich in nutrients like vitamin K, fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, folate and copper.


Not only does salmon pack in a healthy dose of protein, but it's also full of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help to increase the amount of fat calories that your body can burn in a day. Vegetarian foods high in omega-3s include walnuts, spinach, and Brussels sprouts.


Yogurt is a very good source of glutamine, which your body drains after working out. Studies have also linked eating low-fat yogurt with weight loss. A few other reasons to chow down on yogurt include iodine, calcium, protein, phosphorus, and vitamin B2.

Sesame Seeds

Sesame seeds are full of an essential amino acid called isoleucine, which has been shown to help increase muscle protein. After exercising, your body will be running low on isoleucine, so taking a bag of sesame seeds with you to your gym to refuel is a great idea.


Berries are a great way to give your body a little dose of the good carbohydrates it needs. Blueberries are a particularly great pick since they're able to replenish so many of the nutrients drained from your body. From vitamin C and manganese to fiber and vitamin E, blueberries have it all.
