By now we should all know that working out on its own does not provide you with an amazing figure: you need to also be careful about your diet plan. There are some particular foods that will help you get fit if you consume them after a workout.

  • Foods rich in protein: eggs are rich in protein, but also contain vitamin D; quinoa is rich in protein, carbs and fiber; salmon is also a good choice because of anti-inflammatory omega-3 which helps rebuild muscles; dried fruits and nuts help build muscles since they deliver quick protein and crabs
