How long after you eat does it take for you stomach to break down your food, and start delivering to your muscles?
I have no idea, but I would have thought it takes more than 45-60 minutes.....
How long is a piece of string.
Timing of last meal
Size make up of last meal
Size and make up of meal digested
If you looking at a fasted guy whom has just taken some disolved amino acids then approx 20-30mins.
If your very well fed and then eat a large meal you body will still be processing it as much as 6hrs later. However nutirents will be getting into your bloodstream much sooner.
I think the timing thing isn't really an issue and nothing to get anal about. If your well fed your body will have adequate stores to start the recovery process without the need for any instant supply pre or post. I mean whom dosn't eat fairly soon after training anyway? Just set up a routine that your consistent with and works for you and job done.
I have no experince of pro BBs etc etc, or those taking meds, so maybe they can utilise the nutrients in different ways to a normal guy/gal would and hence need to worry about timings that are so strict?
