Yes, it is important. You have to calculate your calorie need and split that into a 40,40,20 split or a 50, 30, 20 split. Make sure that 2/3 of your fat intake is good fats – they are natural fat burners. Also you will need to increase you intake with about 15% extra calories to add sufficient muscle and yes it is important to take a liquid meal post-exercise – not just only protein, but a carb also.
If you are not going to partake in competitions you won’t have to be that pedantic about the exact amount, but to show some value for your effort try and keep the regime more or less in line – in fact it actually becomes a way of life to eat that way – its good for your health!
