Foods to Avoid Eating After a Workout

1. Sugary Shakes

There are a ton of protein shakes and powders advertised as healthy, but many of them contain too much sugar to honestly qualify. Others contain absurd levels of fillers, chemicals, and other bulking agents.

You can still enjoy a quick shake after a workout. It’s a fast and easy way to replenish your body. It’s just vital that you choose a brand that is low-sugar and free from problematic additives. One good powder brand is Form Nutrition, which is very tasty in a smoothie including unsweetened almond milk, whole oats, some ice, and the fruit of your choice.
