I've been through the same, trust me! Having been born to a family with a history of obesity, I really couldn't look to my immediate surroundings for inspiration or advice. I'm thankful to these forums for that. Post workout meals can be quite important, to be honest. You need to ensure that you are consuming enough calories after the burning out. I used to go to a weight loss program here in Toronto with Harvey Brooker that helped me through. You can check this out for some post workout meal ideas that aids in weight loss ( http://www.harveybrooker.com/what-should-you-eat-after-you-workout/ ). They gave me such kind of tips and ideas regarding everything health and nutrition related. Just remember, keeping sipping on water every now and then, as and when you can. The water intake applies the same way the food intake does. Small, controlled portions throughout the day is much better than hoarding at any single time.
I usually just have a banana!
I look to avoid foods with sugar content as much as I can, that's all :)
I do 6hrs+ of badminton a week and yoga nearly everyday, so nit intense stuff. However, due to medical reasons I need to keep my weight up, but I also have to make sure it's not fat weight. To do this my pre-workout routine includes a bottle of water, a banana and a trek bar (usually berry burst), or a similar energy bar. I make sure it is high in protein and low in fat. I also have supplement drinks called Fresubin that I drink post-workout/exercise (8g protein; 300kcal for 200ml), but I'm pretty sure that is by prescription only and wouldn't be good gor you post-workout.
My brother used to train for strength competitions and he would eat a cup of rice with a cup of cooked (but chilled) beef/quorn mince and cold baked beans together in a sealable container before a workout and make sure he worked those kcals off doing weights and body workouts.
Hope this helps. Best of luck.
Stay positive and stay active.
