we do an intense workout, sprinting or lifting, and don't eat after?
My whole life I'd try and eat right after my work out, because I thought it was a requirement for maximum gains. Obviously this isn't the cut and dry case, and I'm interested in experimenting with post workout fasting since many people have come to swear by it.
Does the body put muscle reconstruction on hold? Like keeps it on the "to do" list until it gets protein? I'm very interested in the physiological processes behind post workout fasting.
