Certified personal trainer Kathleen Trotter suggests the following snack pack to keep in your gym bag, as it is crucial to eat within 45 minutes of rigorous exercise:

Bonus tip: Try eating two to three hours prior to your workout. Cut up veggies, trail mix, or a salad can significantly weaken your need to feed.
