Calories in Post-Workout Recovery Drinks

To Drink or Not to Drink: Calories in Post-Workout Recovery Drinks

Hydrating and refueling after a workout is an absolute must. If it's a light workout, then water and one of these low-calorie, carb- and protein-packed snacks will do the trick. If you sweat a lot, then you'll need to replace lost electrolytes such as sodium and potassium with a sports drink, and if it was a particularly grueling workout, then you probably need to gulp down a calorie- and protein-filled recovery drink. Whatever your post-workout needs, check out the breakdown below to see how they compare.
