I've seen it stated several times that one should wait at least 45 minutes to an hour before eating anything post exercise other than a small amount of protein. First, this supposedly allows for the exercise "afterburn" to focus on fat stores and not newly ingested food. Secondly, eating shortly after working out decreases the positive hormonal reaction that weight training has. Does anyone have some input/opinions on these two statements? Thanks.
