FOOD!!!!! What do you eat for lunch

I have been working out at lunch downtown.. and I have been running into the problem of what to eat for lunch that isn't very heavy or defeats the purpose of working out.

What do you eat post-workout?

Subway is always good, I just lost 25 lbs, eating that for lunch everyday. although today I went to Potbelly's in Normal, they have some awesome toasted sandwichs.

post workout? protein shake(no jokes please).

Lunch I like to go super ultra extra cheap like $1 banquet frozen meals, either that or just go full tilt off the reservation with a 1000 calorie meal from Taco Fresco.

I'm trying to eat more on the Vegetarian side as of late, so I'm slowly cutting out meat and diary. At lunch I had a salad from the Salad Bar on Jackson Blvd.

For after workout meals, I make a protein shake and get eat a few carbs to assist in the recovery.

For most of my workouts, I eat yogurt afterwards, sometimes with muesli in it. And lemon propel. After I workout I never have that much of an appetite.

Unless I have been playing water polo, then I usually have about 20 pounds of spaghetti and sauce. lol

Does anyone on here do the meal-replacement drinks instead of eating after working out?

sometimes I eat a protein bar as a meal replacement

protein plus powerbars, vinilla yogurt flavor are about the only ones that taste halfway decent to me

After working out I have been drinking the Yoplait Nouriche Smoothies. I think they even make some that are meal replacements, they have a lot of different ones. I love them, and they have a lot of vitamins and minerals in them. The one that is on my desk now, says it's a "SuperSmoothie" and it has 20 vitamins and minerals....ooooooo!! If I know I am going to go and do a ton of running and strength training I also eat a ton of carbs before working out and then something really light afterwards.

I generally eat protein, something like lean chicken breast. I would imagine a chicken salad of some sort would be good. Also get some dairy in your system, I find it helps with any muscle cramps the next day.

What do you eat post-workout?
Check this link out for snacks and other ssggestions: Snacks

But quickly, your eating depends alot on the workout....

(1) If you are doing more strength training....make sure to get some protein in your system and round it out with other types of snacks (definitely fruits/veggies).

(2) If you are doing more cardio...not as much protein is needed so try to hit more carb related foods like bagels, oatmeal, and of course fruits/veggies.

If you know you are working out make your lunch the day before and bring it with you that way you can manage your eating better.

Outside of this, try to eat within 1 hr. of your workout (preferably 30 minutes) since this window of opportunity is when your body is in most need of replenishment and the refueling is most useful/effective for your body.

The point is that the all around quality of your workout is better than the quantity. People that work out 4/5 times a week and don't get the results are not succeeding for lack of effort but in their preparedness and training routine (eg, workouts, food, rest).

Have fun and good luck.
