ok so weve all heard about this whole 90 minute crap. personally i think its supplement company bull**** to help sell their protein. but i just read in my nasm book that eating postworkout protein and carbohydrates will increase recovery, increase protein synthesis, thus maximise gains. ok i agree with that no problem, but then it fed me this crap
"meal-replacement formula can be absorbed quickly owing to being predigested. food may take several ours to digest and absorb, missing the window"
so according to the National Academy of Sports Medecine, we only got 90 minutes after exercise to "maximize gains" and food takes too long to digest, thus is ineffective.
i dont believe in a "90-minute window," what about the rest of you? and if anyone can show me studies proving or disproving this, id greatly apreciate it
