  • I drink MonaVie (M)mu (immune system drink) and MonaVie Energy (recovery drink) and plenty of H2o before, during and after a workout/run. - 8/16/2011 6:43:32 AM
  • Any guidance on what to eat before a workout?

    I usually work out Forsyth thing in the morning and do not eat anything until after my workout. - 5/22/2011 1:12:44 PM
  • Thanks for this article about eating after exercise. As I prepare for my first 5K, I'll keep these thoughts in mind. - 4/4/2011 12:06:32 AM
  • well I usually have split pea soup after swimming... which is a quick high fiber carbohydrate meal and I add spinach and 80 grams of chicken... today.. - 12/11/2010 3:03:10 PM
  • I am not very thirsty after working out by treading water at the pool for 100 minutes or swimming lengths.... I am usually hungry.... - 12/11/2010 3:01:26 PM
    I'm surprised to hear so many people say that they are hungry after a work out. For some reason I'm not. Just very thirsty. It actually hurts my stomach if I eat too soon after the work out. Interesting ideas to consider here though. thanks

  • Great article and thanks for blowing the myth of "more protein" out of the water! ☺ I love how you have details in the article too. Its info you can actually USE and learn from. Thanks! - 7/3/2010 4:47:17 PM
  • The article cleared up so much of what I'm lacking in my post workout, great article! - 6/25/2010 9:44:01 PM
  • Thank you so much Dean for sharing your knowlege, I really find your articles interesting, I learn a lot from them. This particular one's giving me some valuable insight cause my main problem is after workout meals where I always fail to control my eating, and it makes me feel like the effort I put into the work out is wasted. Now I have some guidelines to follow, hope it works! - 6/10/2010 6:56:03 AM

    I am confused, I am currently eating 900 to 1200 calories a day and exercising to burn off 400 to 500 calories a day. Should I be eating more calories after my workout or what? I exercise after work and before my dinner - 6/7/2010 8:44:23 PM
  • So, that's why I gained rather than maintain my weight last month. I think I eat more calories than I burned, last month very hungry after workout. Very thirsty, that one I can easily fix but very hungry, all food looks so evily temptation, haha. - 6/7/2010 8:06:39 PM
  • Dean,
    Thanks for all of the knowledge that you continue to put out here for us. I learn something from almost every article you put out here. Some times it is just a reaffirmation of things that I do, other times it is new insights.
    Thanks again. - 2/19/2010 11:33:30 AM
