Eat More Protein After Working Out, From Ellie Krieger (WATCH)

When you're replenishing after your workout, you want to include some protein because it helps your body absorb the carbohydrates you're eating, according to nutritionist and host of The Cooking Channel's "Healthy Appetite" Ellie Krieger. When she met with me on Mondays With Marlo, Ellie stressed that everyone has a different digestive system. Some people like to eat protein before working out, but it's most important to have it post-workout.
