When we asked 10 top fitness instructors to share what they munch on after a tough workout, a clear theme emerged: They're not munching on anything at all. However, a majority said they do sip on some kind of protein shake to help them recover and refuel.

"After a workout, I want ample protein and carbs, and my main objective is to fuel and reload my depleted muscles," says Lisa Niren, a New York City-based personal trainer and indoor-cycling instructor. "Within minutes of a workout ending, I drink a Jay Robb chocolate or vanilla whey protein shake. A shake is fast-absorbing into the blood stream and provides easily digestible carbs to fill up the muscle glycogen stores with quality protein to build up lean muscle mass."
