What are you trying to ask?

Yes, eating turns on parasympathetic functions and turns of sympathetic (cortisol being a sympathetic hormone)

This is all part of normal function but once it gets out of whack (aka too much exercise e.g. too much sympathetic stimulatino) you may have issues.

That's why to recover you eat more and sleep more... parasympathetic functions

Nothing new or amazing
