#5. Make sure to eat something soon
Especially if you just worked out really hard, your body has just used up the energy it needs to function at max capacity. Ideally, you want to refuel within about 30 minutes of working out to get those energy stores back up. If you aren’t able to eat a full meal right away, have a snack within 20 minutes of your training, then a full meal 3 to 4 hours later.
