Nutrient timing is the application of knowing when to eat and what to eat before, during and after exercise.It is designed to help athletes, recreational competitors, and exercise enthusiasts achieve their most advantageous exercise performance and recovery. There are three distinct phases in the nutrient timing system that are based on muscle, its nutritional requirements, and its recovery demands for best strength and endurance results.

But first, a basic review of the hormones of exercise is warranted. Nutrient timing is a planned alteration of macronutrient intake in order to promote health, workout performance, and get/stay lean. ... One of the most important nutrient timing principles is that it's best to eat most non-fruit and veggie carbohydrates during and after exercise.
