Snack 1: In the first several minutes after exercise consume 16oz of Gatorade or other sports drink, a power gel such as a Clif Shot or Goo, and a medium banana. This quickly begins to replenish muscle carbohydrate stores.
Snack 2: After cooling down and showering, grab another quick snack such as 12oz of orange juice and ¼ cup of raisins.
Small meal appetizer: Enjoy a spinach salad with tomatoes, chickpeas, green beans, and tuna and a whole grain baguette.
Small meal main course: Replenish with whole grain pasta with diced tomatoes.
Dessert: After allowing ample time for the day’s snacks and meals to digest, finish your refueling program with one cup of frozen yogurt and berries.
