The recovery from injury or illness requires otherwise healthy individuals to undergo a period muscle disuse that despite its clinical relevance, their physiological mechanisms during muscle disuse are important and need be elucidated. Besides that, a regular consumption of meals, around 4 to 6 times a day, approximately between 3 and 4 hours is interesting the periodization carbohydrate consumption that can offer adaptations that prevent damage to lipid metabolism after meals, maintain insulin sensitivity, control the accumulation of visceral adiposity and try mantain the muscle glycogen store acquired during activities.
