Eggs are one of the most popular post-workout foods, for a number of reasons. For one, they’re extremely cheap — in fact, in a lot of places their cost is subsidized, meaning you pay market value for them. On top of that, they’re very easy to prepare; in fact, most young chefs learn to perfect the omelet before moving on to preparing any other dish.
Eggs are great for eating after a workout because they’re packed with protein and good fats that your body desperately wants shortly after expending a lot of energy. If you’re determined to lose weight, you can cut the fat and cholesterol out by purchasing egg whites, which have all the protein but none of the yolk.
