You might feel strong and energized after your indoor-cycling class or treadmill run, but if you only completed a 30- or 45-minute workout, there's no rush to eat, since relatively speaking, the fuel you burned is low. The more intensely you move, the more energy you use, and as a result, it becomes more important to refuel. When you're training for a race and logging a lot of miles, do your best to eat 200 to 300 calories within 30 minutes of your workout. If you're into kicking your butt with HIIT, intense sprints at the track, or kickboxing, nutritionists agree: you need to refuel and recover with a combination of protein and carbs.
