    I know this sounds like a dumb question but I was wondering:

    Yesterday I took the TRIM class that David Barton himself created. The idea is an hour of the most intense full-body workout and then for the next two hours your body is in such a hormonal state you can eat whatever you want and you'll burn it right up. I didn't do that and today I am really sore. Does soreness mean I can indulge tonight at dinner?

    No. You can only eat two M&M's and a cracker.

    The science behind that sounds like complete B.S. Yes, your body continues its burn for two hours after you work out. That happens with all weight bearing workouts. But that doesn't mean you can eat what you want. In fact, that sounds like some of the biggest shit I have ever heard. It has nothing to do with magical hormones. You should always refuel after a workout because that is when your body will burn the most efficiently; however, eating whatever you want will only ruin what you just burned. Remember, your body is only consuming a limited amount of calories, so eating whatever you want does no good if you A) want to lose weight because you might eat more than you just burned (there's no such magical thing as anything eaten in those two hours will be burned up) or B) if you want to put on weight, you still have to eat the right food. So in summation, this guy sounds like a quack. You need to eat correctly and you can't just eat what you want and however much you want and expect it to be burned off.

    Second, being sore has nothing to do with your body being in a state of burning. In fact, if you're still sore the next day, that usually means you overdid it (you shouldn't be sore for more than a few hours if you are going at the right pace).

    I normally don't workout that intensely so that may be why I am sore. In the end, though, I didn't indulge.

    Yep. Anytime you overeat, you create triglycerides to store in your fat cells.
    The first place your body will look for energy is intramuscular glycogen followed by intramuscular triglyceride. Getting blood glucose and blood triglyceride into muscles after a workout is a slow process, albeit the highest it will ever be at immediately following a workout when blood is still warm in the muscles. Considering digestion and food processing time in the body into the molecules it can take into the blood, it is not a good idea to overeat ever. Blood flow will be reduced from the muscles and directed toward the gut to process new food intake, and if there is too high a concentration of anything, triglyceride is formed. So the best way to recover is, yes, again, small frequent meals with moderate carbohydrate and light to moderate protein intake with some unsaturated fat to slow digestion.
