Great Post Workout Replenishment: Skim Milk

Everyone is always asking what they should eat or drink after working out. The truth is that there is not one single food or drink that is best to consume post workout. Basically, after working out we all need to replenish lost gylcogen, which means you're going to need protein and carbs, so it's good to eat something with a good balance of the two. Oh and obviously try to aim for something low-fat as well.

A good quick and easy bet is skim milk. Skim milk is known for its protein, but it also has carbs. One cup of skim milk has 8.7 grams of protein and 12.3 grams of carbs and it's only 91 calories. Making it a great choice.

Fit's Tip: If you're hungry then you may want to eat something a little more substantial like some nonfat cottage cheese with crackers, but if you're just looking to get replenished skim milk should do the trick.
