Why It’s Important to Eat After a Workout

You should first replace the carbs and glycogen (the kind of stored glucose in your muscles) that you just used 

 up throughout your workout. After your workout, you should eat high-quality protein to help rebuild

and repair the muscle tissue that was lost, as well as to promote muscle protein synthesis, which is crucial for

muscle recovery and exercise adaption. To prevent cell damage from exercise, it's also critical to

replenish the fluids lost from perspiration and heavy breathing, as well as to eat meals high in antioxidants. On

the other hand, missing a post-workout snack might make you feel more exhausted and prevent your

body from recovering and repairing itself. Additionally, it can make you less effective the following time you work out.
