Then, eat a banana, protein-rich food, vegetables and a cup or half cup of rice. Banana will refresh your heart with potassium and give you energy plus vitamins and minerals. You have just burned calories so you need the extra energy. Hence, the rice, too. Protein will help repair injured tissues and vegetables will help empty your bowels.
After jogging, your body craves for nutrient replenishment. You should replace lost nutrients and fluids. You also need a little sodium.
But never eat too much. Just eat a small meal. If you feel hungry later, eat a small healthy snack. I like eating papaya or pineapple.
But don't they say that eating a heavy breakfast is healthy? The right thing is to eat a healthy breakfast, not heavy breakfast. Heavy can often just give you acid reflux later.
What I often have for breakfast after a run and martial arts workout is some rice, boiled egg, banana, pineapple, apple and eggplant.
I saw a guy who smoked after running. I almost LOL seeing him do that. What good is a workout only to destroy your body later? Stupid, but many people do this---sometimes even professional medical people.
Some folks ask me how often should they run. In my case, I run almost everyday. I observe rest days when I relax and read books and write blogs.
