    What to eat after drinking coffee or pre-workout

    It's commonly known and basically irrefutable that after I exercise and sweat I need to replace certain salts in my body and have some carbs to get back to a normal state.

    When I drink caffeine what nutrients in my body are depleted 6 hours later? And what are some things that I can eat to normalize my body?
    Google is surprisingly unhelpful but maybe I just phrased the question oddly.

    The question is hard to decipher, but i think you mean what does taking caffeine deplete?

    It exhausts your adrenal receptors, which is why it's good to take a break from caffeine every now and again.

    Well .....I am going to state the obvious and that's to stay hydrated. Where I live it is winter and its easy to let the water intake slide a bit. Remember ....your muscles are like bags of water, if you aren't hydrated they wont expand and contract as well and you wont be as strong and that's something the gear wont compensate for.

    @khazima thats the question I'm asking yea

    So It seems from these responses that there isn't anything like salt or vitamins or anything that I would need to refuel. Just hydrate.

    You get plenty of salt in the course of the day. Keep the water coming.

    Dietary caffeine acutely increases urinary calcium loss (1), and these losses are not entirely compensated for in the 24 h after caffeine consumption (2). Overall, the evidence indicates that younger individuals can increase their calcium absorption to compensate for the urinary losses, whereas the elderly are less adaptable (3). It is not surprising that most cross-sectional studies of elderly populations showed no association of caffeine consumption with bone loss or bone mineral density because so many genetic and lifestyle factors are now known to affect bone health. Previous prospective studies of elderly populations yielded conflicting results regarding caffeine and bone loss. Although Cummings et al (4) included caffeine consumption among the risk factors for hip fracture, Lloyd et al (5) were unable to find any association of caffeine with bone loss in a 2-y prospective study of 112 postmenopausal women. Similarly, Hannan et al (6) did not find that caffeine (or calcium intake) was associated with bone loss in the Framingham study population.
    The interaction of caffeine intake with calcium on bone loss was reported by Harris and Dawson-Hughes (7). These investigators found that bone loss from the spine and total-body bone mineral density occurred only in postmenopausal women who had both low calcium intakes (440–744 mg/d) and high caffeine intakes (450–1120 mg/d). The following year, this same research team showed that response to calcium supplementation is influenced by vitamin D receptor gene (VDR) genotype (8), with the rate of loss at the femoral neck being reduced by calcium only in the BB VDR subgroup. In retrospect, it is probably not surprising that in this issue of the Journal Rapuri et al (9) report that caffeine's effect on bone loss is also associated with VDR genotype.

    Do you know of anything else that sets depleted from caffiene use?

    You're welcome. I think most things that may get depleted from caffeine don't get depleted to an appreciable degree. It also depends on how much caffeine and how much of that particular nutrient you're taking in obviously. Here's a pretty helpful link, scroll down towards the bottom section 13 for nutrient interactions.

    I am no pro but IMHO would you not have eaten a well balanced meal with-in 3 hours of trainning and get all the fuel you need as a trainer you would know what foods will give you what results and water is the cheapest and one of the more criticial things we need to ingest to keep all the body functioning as it should and also to not retain fluid ? IMHO
