I feel so drained after my workouts, and want to refuel... but I'm nervous about adding carbs after a hard workout. What is your favorite post-WOD snack?

    I just hit some protein. Because of the time of day, I eat dinner right after. Plus I'm able to cf in a mostly fasted state.

    I usually do my CF workouts in the morning and follow it up with a protein shake - but I am starting the whole life challenge Saturday and am going to have to find something that fits in their guidelines - my current shake doesn't.

    I do my WOD in the am. I drink a bulletproof coffee when I get home and then eat breakfast around 8:30-9. The bulletproof coffee has really been helping.

    Sweet potatoes and berries are your friend. I love them for recharging and you don't need much to feel perked up.

    I save my love of sweet potatoes for after a good hard workout....

    other than that protien and a good amount of water - your muscles need water to repair and will usurp water in your body so even though you have drank a lot during your workout your body still may be a bit dehydrated since your muscles are utilizing the water and can make you feel even more drained.

    I just eat a regular meal, usually lunch.
