on Nutrient Timing for Performance and Mass

The soundbite summary: “If someone does or doesn’t eat at a certain time, such as post-workout, this almost always changes the total quantity eaten that day. Much of the timing research is affected by this and is really research evaluating different total quantities.”

Does fueling inside the anabolic window make a difference? To answer that, I’m highlighting the distinction between timing and quantity, research around carbs and protein intake for non-endurance training, and more.
