Post Workout: How to Control Post Workout Cravings


After a workout or after completing a strenuous activity, we tend to look for food. We have a rapacious appetite and we have the habit of gorging on unhealthy foods like burgers, chaats and calorie-rich foods. But there are ways to curb and stall these unnatural hunger pangs.

To avoid and control post workout cravings:

- Have a heavy pre-workout snack. This will crush your post workout cravings and it will keep you going through the workout.

- Generally after a workout, you are recommended to have protein-rich foods. You can have a variety of dishes and combo with poultry, tuna, peanut butter, banana, yoghurt and fruits.

- Drink water after intervals, before, during and after the workout. Water helps to control hunger pangs.

- Post workout snacks that crush cravings should be chewy and lack calories. You can chew on this:

  • Apples
  • Raw carrots
  • Celery
  • Sugar-free gum


- Finally you should motivate yourself to stay away from calorie-rich foods post a workout. It is important to follow a right protein-rich diet post workout for recovery of muscles.
