What is your recommendation to replace glycogen after a high intensity workout?

While replacing glycogen is important, your body only has the ability to store about 500g of glycogen in muscle tissue and the liver. So, while replenishment is important, the bigger and more important change comes in the body's shift away from using glycogen as its primary fuel source to using stored fat for energy. It does this by gradually changing your fuel sources so that they are higher in protein and fat. 

For post-workout, we recommend replenishing with a balance of macronutrients... protein, fat and easily digestible carbohydrates such as fruit.
