Don't overcompensate - 9 Things to Eat Before and After a Workout

It’s really easy to overdo it with your post-workout snacks, and end up eating or drinking more calories than you actually burned. That’s fine if you are trying to gain weight, but for folks who want to lose or maintain their weight, this is counterproductive. Skip the energy drinks, bars, sugary smoothies, and smoothie bowls at the gym juice bar. Try to keep your post-workout snack around 150 calories and your post-workout meal under 500.
