Bananas are considered to be the "best" recovery food. There are also recovery formulae that you mix with water and drink. I use those, and they work pretty well. There are even a few that aren't nasty.

Ok this is going to sound weird but trust me it works. Get a good quality juicer and juice vegetables like spinach etc. alongside with say, one lemon. These type of blends are also used for detox. And most importantly as a lifestyle, try not to eat acidic foods as they ard the main cause of fat. I stated that you can put a lemon in the blend above because a lemon, once digested, becomes alcaline.  Also try to drink water with pH 8 or above.
