Effects of nutrient intake timing and exercise on carbohydrate (e.g. insulin sensitivity), protein (muscle protein synthesis), and fat (circulating triacylglycerols) metabolism are reviewed in this paper. Altered nutrient intake timing relative to exercise can modulate the metabolic response, which is relevant for individuals seeking to use exercise to enhance health.
