The Krebs cycle is a series of chemical reactions, which is used by living organisms to generate energy through the oxidization of acetate derived from carbohydrates, fats and proteins into carbon dioxide and water.
Let's not go into the details about how the Krebs cycle works. I once read somewhere (do not recall where) that waiting at least 2 hours after the workout will have some advantages.
Is this a stupid thing?
The Krebs cycle works on aerobic state. Because it needs oxygen, during a running workout, it works (I think) only running at a low intensity, because if I run faster and the intensity grew, there will be others chemical reactions.
So let's assume I have just finished a low intensity running workout and my goal is fat loss.
Will I have some advantages by waiting a certain amount of time before I eat, or will I not?
If, on the other hand, my goal is muscle gain, do I need to have the same behavior?
