Coming from other fitness forums I was amazed at the food cyclists eat after a recovery ride.
Example: Bagel with Banna and honey on top of it. LOL....Pure carbohydrate.
I guess muscle building protein is out, huh?
EDIT: (post #25 pretty much sums up how I feel)
"I think I'm just opposed to purely carbohydrate recovery meals.
Protein is part of muscle recovery and if you are eating 3grams/kg of carbs might as well take advantage of all that insulin that is going to released and take some protein with it.
The insulin response to the ingested carbs is relatively short window (particularly if they are of a high glycemic index), the protein needs to be around at the time of the insulin release. Protein may also smooth out some of the insulin release by lowering the glycemic index at bit."
