What to eat af­ter­wards:

CLEO (Malaysia) - - BODY FEATURE -

Your next meal should fall within an hour after your work­out. If not, go for a healthy snack to tide you over. A cof­fee, a pro­tein bar or some cut-up veg­gies with hum­mus are rel­a­tively low-kJ choices that’ll keep your hunger at bay. While it’s thought that swim­ming helps to burn a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of kilo­joules, do­ing laps also in­creases your ap­petite as the body has to work hard to main­tain its tem­per­a­ture. This ex­plains those rav­en­ous post-pool ses­sions!

“I as­sumed that ‘smoothie’ was of the vanil­lamilk­shake kind.”
