How nice to be able to actually hear something personal from a Reader. Glad you liked dear old Ptoch - their Department of Sports Science is world-class. Now that you have filled me in a bit more about your original query it makes better sense. The statement by Smook does not agree with what we were taught at the course in Potch and I stand by my advice - drink something if you are thirsty and use a source of energy and carbs after exercise to top up your glycogen so that you can recover properly. And yes there is additional information for athletes and diet on this site. I have written many articles on the subject of diets for sportsmen and women. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'DietDoc's articles' and read articles 4, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 46 to obtain answers to your questions. There is also info on the Fitness site. Click on 'Fitness' at the top of this page and then on 'Nutrition'. The articles on carbs, carbo-loading and protein are probably the mose relevant to your query.
Have a good day
