A quick question about post-workout

Post by Veronica » Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:01 pm

I keep seeing people say you want carbs + protein after a workout, but not fat.

I'm under the impression the reason for this is that fat will slow down the digestion process and therefore slow down getting the protein and carbs converted into what your body needs. Is that the basic reason for this, or is there something else?

Also, is there a general consensus on how long this "no fats" window should last?
