Carb feeding after exercise may alter muscle metabolic adaption

This study seems to suggest that carb feeding after exercise may influence the oxidative capacity of skeletal muscle.

When attempting to loose fat, it may therefore be beneficial to not consume carbs post work out, as free fatty acids can only undergo oxidative respiration

The other question is, does carb feeding after a work out therefore effect gains in Type I vs Type II fibre? Since Type I fibre is highly oxidative.
