Maintain sufficient protein intake. The following foods contain plenty protein: fish, chicken, lean beef, lean pork. Low-fat dairy products can also be good choices. As for vegetarians, protein powder or drinks can be good options.

Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, and drink plenty water. Multi-vitamin supplements can also help. Musculoskeletal recovery usally needs more nutrition and calories. Weight-loss diet is on the contrary - but in this case, healing and recovery are more important.
