If the anabolic window is much greater than previously thought (24 hours), then why does calorie cycling work?

1edb06ded9ccf098a4517ca4a7a34ebc
foreveryoung 0 · September 25, 2012 at 10:51 PM

The answer is because the post-exercise anabolic window is not constant, but diminishes with time. Additionally, there are diminishing returns to calorie consumption beyond a certain point. This is because 1) you can only digest and absorb so... (more)
