This is also important for losing weight. Food after a workout, especially proteins and carbohydrates, does a crucial job of rebuilding and repairing muscles. Both protein and carbohydrates help rebuild muscle and eating carbohydrates also replenishes glycogen stores to fuel you and keep you energized for your next workout. The muscle mass your body builds with that fuel boosts your metabolism, which means you burn more calories, even after training, when you’re not actively trying. Depriving your body of fuel after a workout also robs you of the muscle and metabolic gains and weight loss benefits that come with it.
