    Abstract

    [Truncated abstract] It is well established that an increase in exercise intensity is generally associated with a decrease in the proportion of CHO oxidised during recovery, thus promoting the sparing of CHO for subsequent exercise bouts. In contrast, the proportion of CHO oxidised in response to a meal ingested after exercise has been reported to be unaffected by exercise intensity. This latter finding might be explained on the basis that large amounts of CHO were fed after exercise in some studies, thus raising the possibility that this may have overridden any CHO sparing during the post-exercise period. Moreover, since the temporal pattern of change in CHO and fat oxidation after meal ingestion was not examined in previous studies, it is possible that CHO sparing at particular points in time might have gone undetected. For these reasons, this study re-examines the extent to which the amount of CHO fed post-exercise affect over time the impact of exercise intensity on the proportion of CHO and fat oxidised during recovery.
