    Bananas have a lot of potassium, which is great to replenish after a hard workout. If you are avoiding bananas, try eating an avocado, mushrooms, salmon, or squash. If you eat a sushi roll with salmon and avocado, you'll get the potassium without the carbs.

      Aren't carbs also important for athletes? I know as a runner I flail without enough carbs in my system.

      All carbs are not created equal. Complex carbohydrates give long lasting energy without the burnout that you get from sugar and gluten products.
