Eating or drinking foods in this ratio after a workout allows your body to focus on rebuilding rather than digestion. This means you'll bounce back faster from tough workouts, which is a critical factor in building muscle and strength retention. If you are not fueling your body properly after a workout, either by not eating at all or eating the wrong foods, your body will remain in a stressed state. This stress creates higher levels of cortisol in your body which causes you to retain fat and use muscle for fuel, which is totally the opposite of what you want from your workouts!
