Subject:         Eating Required After Short-Duration, High Intensity Training?

Hi Dr. Graham.

I've read Nutrition and Athletic Performance, and you talk about our body being primed to uptake sugar into our muscles after exercise.

But I'm curious to know if you need to eat if you haven't really burned through your current glycogen supplies.

For instance, today I did 10 100-meter sprints at the track, and that's it. All told, we're only talking about a few minutes of actual exercise, albeit fairly high intensity exercise.

I wasn't hungry afterward, and didn't eat. I find this is usually the case for this type of workout. When I'm out running for an hour or so, though, I usually come in starving.

I'm curious to know if you think we should still be forcing ourselves to eat if we're not hungry after exercise, and if skipping fruit after short exercise sessions still impairs recovery.
