This is my first post and I have a quick question for all of you knowledgeable tnationers out there. I will be coming off a cut in the next 2/3 weeks and I have heard of this "anabolic window". Basically, after a few months/weeks of being on a diet your body enters a catabolic state.
So, when you reintroduce normal feeding levels your test/glycogen levels rebound and our bodies put on muscle mass a lot faster. My question is how long does this window last for? I would assume at least 2 weeks but I am totally clueless. If anyone who answers can site their source or the study, bro-science is evil.
Post script: I have checked google, tnation, mayoclinic, pubmed, and other various forums and cannot find much information. I think this is due to the various name this phenomenon has. Thanks again!
