Hi Andrew

No, not necessarily. There's no "supposed to", and the idea is to eat those more rapidly available carbs before and during exercise. But afterwards, that doesn't necessarily apply.

The science tells us that a meal after exercise, within the first 60 minutes, is helpful to replenish fuel stores and that this meal should consist of BOTH protein and glycogen.

So I'd go for that, after you finish training.
