The "Anabolic Window" Post Workout

Hello Tiger Fitness, so I've been hearing conflicting arguments about protein or any food consumption timing after your workout and there's a supposed "anabolic" window time limit where you're supposed to feed your body to convert it from a catabolic state to an anabolic state? But then I heard that you don't have to immediately consume anything right after you workout because you have a larger window than what was previously said before. What are your thoughts and what would be the best foods to consume postworkout to build max muscle?

I feel that there is a window, the importance of it is what's at question. If you consume whey/whey+Carbs immediately PWO the glycogen replenishment is far superior to any other time (within an hour) but unless your diet and training are on point, it is putting too much focus on micro factors and not enough on macro factors. 


Post workout, have an MTS Whey + Carb 10 shake immediately after training
