Stage 4: The Hours Following a Race or Hard Workout
Top off your glycogen stores for the next workout. Friel and Dr. Cordain suggest eating everything from pasta to bread to bagels and cereals, as well as animal protein.
Stage 5: The Rest of the Time
Adhere to a strict Paleo plan. Since you have permitted yourself carbs during the last four stages, your glycogen stores should be full. Shift back to micronutrients for long-term recovery.
While the Paleo Diet takes some adjusting, it might be worthwhile getting in touch with your Stone Age roots. Recommends Durant, "Try it for 30 days, and if you don't like the results, go back to your established diet."
