You’ve just left the gym after a gruelling workout and your stomach begins its whale-call of hunger. You’re now faced with the conundrum of deciding what to eat post-workout, but you also remember all the rules and numbers you’ve got to watch out for. You can’t have too much fat, that’s obvious, but you also have to ingest a good amount of protein, while ensuring you don’t have too many calories overall.

All that trouble just so you can walk around shirtless this summer at Pierre & Friends without cheeks redder than your tan. Well, we’ve got you covered with five quick and clean post-workout snacks (all under 400 kcals) to quell the beast within, while nourishing that body-in-the-making. Take a look:


Slender Chicken at La Fitness Diner


Calories: 258

A close cousin of the other protein-packed chicken platter at La Fitness, the Bench Press Chicken, the Slender Chicken offers protein in copious quantities at 47g and a fair 7g of fat per dish. Definitely a satisfying post-sesh meal if you’ve got an appetite to match your PR.

Low-Cal Turkey & Cheese at Zaatar w Zeit


Calories: 373

Yes, ZwZ can be healthy, and yes, you can visit it during normal daylight hours without having been pubbing all night. One of our favourites on their health-conscious light menu, the low calorie T&C doesn’t compromise on girth or flavour, and that melting cheese will hold you off till your next cheat day.

Oven Roasted Chicken at Subway


Calories: 266

So it’s not technically chicken per se, making their claim of it being oven-roasted anything quite tenuous, but it definitely packs a protein-heavy punch. It’s a body-builder’s best friend long as you pick a healthy bread (personal favourite is the Honey Oat). Go wild with the veggie toppings and slow down on the sauce and there you have it.

Chicken Avocado Slimmy at Diet Delights


Calories: 266

Grilled chicken and avocadoes, enough said. No but really, it’s a match made in culinary heaven up there with Cookies’N’Cream-flavoured whey. Great macros on this one, but it’ll leave you with some hunger pangs if you’ve got a big appetite. They offer a wide variety, all while keeping your dietary limitations in mind.

Chicken Tenders at Fiber


Calories: 67

A guilt-free (and gains-aplenty) way of reliving those chicken-nugget memories of your childhood without the guilt. A perfect post-workout snack for a paltry amount of calories, the chicken tenders at Fiber will most likely have you ordering seconds just to mop up the honey mustard sauce that comes with.
