For when I'm on the run, I'll throw some kind of protein bar, slimfast shake, or a gatorade recover drink in my gym bag and Ill have it in the locker room after my run/workout before I go to work. They don't need refigeration, quick and easy, with carbs and protein.

Does anyone use a protein shake or the like after a workout? There is often more than an hour after I run before I am able to eat. I would like something portable (that doesn't require refrigeration, as chocolate milk would) that would help me recover. Any suggestions on foods?

before a run usually something like an apple and a bannana or oatmeal about 1 hr before so i dont get cramps. afterward usually a bannana and some kind of protein, sometimes egg beaters (im watching my weight) or maybe some lean sliced turkey etc... You may have to experiment to see what really clicks for you. :) good luck and keep going!

I stopped drinking milk years ago because a natural path Dr. talked about its not for the adult body (that's another topic)
before run meal if any and awake early enough just Oatmeal preferably steel cut with frozen blueberries some honey no protein or fats
after run hydrate water or electrolyte Gu drink, or just plain water and because I'm still into weight management will wait 1 hour before I eat my meal.
This increases fat burning and weight-loss.
I like banana for the potassium & natural sugar

My after-run meal os also breakfast- 3 hard-boiled egg whites and oatmeal with berries, flax seed and wheat germ. Seems to do the trick!

I run before work, so what I eat also is considered breakfast. I cook cereal (in milk) and add a yogurt. The cereal is usually some form of Bob's Red Mill brand - whole grains. And I follow it about two hours later with a piece of fruit.

I will usually have a greek yogurt with chopped apple and honey. Sometimes I'll have it before I run too.

LOL, ok, I'm one of those chocolate milk drinkers for long runs, either that, or a fruit smoothy (mango, peach, and fruit juice), either does the trick for me.

Cheers,
Trish

I read this really great article recently in the October issue of iRun Magazine. It talks about using Glycemic Index (GI) to figure out which carbs to eat and when. I found it very interesting as it highlights the difference between slow acting and fast acting carbs and which one is best to eat before, during and after running.

Hope it's as interesting to you as it was to me!

I usually don't have an appetite but Adrien (and others) swear by a glass of chocolate milk. I've read that in runner's world mag. too.
I'm sure others will have lots more ideas for you.

I need to know what I should eat after I run. what will give me more energy? Should I concentrate on protein or carbs? I'm also watching my calories so I want to make the best choices. Any suggestions?
