It's quite different to measure specific chosen parameters, for example glycogen resynthesis and exercise performance on a bicycle, than to determine effect on body composition and strength over time, or ability to weight train intensively with volume.
I'm able to access only the abstract presently, which is vague on what was being compared with what, simply "sports supplement" with macronutrient figures but no specification as to types of carbohydrate, protein, and fat, vs "fast food" of same otherwise unspecified composition. Glucose, complex carbs, sucrose, fructose, we do not know from the abstract. (The full article undoubtedly will say.)
Apparently the two things each being compared were about 8% protein, 68% carbs, and 18% fat. Not what I'd call quality post workout nutrition in either case, though apparently this was aerobics oriented.
