Whats are the best things to eat after a work out


New member
Ive read that its good to consume a protein shake after a work is mandatory but i also read that carbs are good too. This is confusing to me why are carbs good for you after a work out and what kind are good can you guys explain this to me and give me some examples of good post work out meals

Protein and some carbs (oatmeal and fruit is my choice)
I drink a shake and eat rice cakes. They are probably not ideal but are so yummy and that is the one time I allow myself to have them. Of course the flavored kinds.
Well, I don't know if this what's "best" (as it is a relative term) but most of the time I eat brown rice and some sort of lean protein. I usually consume an equal amount of protein:carbs, slightly in favor of carbs.
