Hey you all.
I need some suggestions for a good post work out snack while on phase one. I am also monitoring my salt intake and cholesterol intake.

Thanks in advance!!!:^:

What about Hummus with celery, cucumbers and red/yellow/red peppers? Or some peanut butter and celery?

I have to say, I've completely avoided peanut butter during phase one, only because I don't feel I can trust myself. ;)

I am a big fan of turkey and low fat cheese. Somethines I add a fried egg too. Greek yogurt and PB smoothies too yum!

I love my PB on an apple or celery.

Kudos own your WL in Phase 1, you are doing great!

How intense are your workouts? Do you actually need a post workout snack or just feel you deserve one because you worked out? I have found that I don't really do such high intensity workouts that I actually need a snack after, I just thought I deserved one for working out :dizzy: I think it's a trap lots of people fall into, that's why I asked :) However if you do the kind of super intense exercise Jekel does you definitely need something. Anything with Greek yogurt is good - smoothies, yogurt with chopped fruit (I like a little chia seed or flax for extra fiber). Of course if you just really like to snack after working out planning the end of your workout to coincide with you regular SBD between meal snack is perfect.

Funny side story - my DD and I like to do the Boston AIDS Walk. It's 10k, long but not exceptionally long. In the past we have carb loaded the night before. We know we don't need to but how often do you get an excuse to eat a noodle dish :dizzy: ?
