It is actually recommended that you have your post workout meal in the 15-20 minute window post workout. Since your question is about hygiene I would say it does not matter as long as your food doesnt touch the sweat. Keep in mind that showering immediately after a meal will affect your digestion, as it will divert the blood flow from the stomach to other ...

An animal product is any material derived from the body of an animal. Examples are fat, flesh, blood, milk, eggs, and lesser known products, such as isinglass and rennet. So milk is clearly an animal product. Veganism is both the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects ...

I don't understand why all the answers saying timing doesn't matter are being downvoted. There is no link between time of protein ingestion in relation to working out that has any substantial effect. Please see this paper.

A huge reality you need to embrace is that if you do not make sizable time and adjustments for your health now, you will make time and adjustments for long term and generally incurable health problems in the future. You might be "busy" now with life commitments, but being on a kidney dialysis machine will make you even "busier". This isn't about having a ...

To lose weight, you do not need to eat "healthy" or eat vegetables. Weight gain and loss comes down to the energy balance equation, or net calories (weight changes) = calories in - calories out. The reason exercise helps to lose weight is because it increases the calories out number, but it is not strictly necessary with good diet (though it will increase ...

If your goal is general fitness then you're doing plenty of running, walking, and swimming, but your deadlift is quite light. Sixteen reps is also a lot for the deadlift. If it's possible to use more weight but fewer reps per set, do that. 60kg to 100kg should be entirely doable for you within a few months. Other ways to get good use out of your limited ...

It looks like I eat more at lunch than you eat during the whole day. If you are still getting fat on this diet, then you should first do a medical check up to rule out problems like e.g. thyroid problems. Absent any medical problems, you should start to exercise a lot more and then later actually increase your food intake. You won't get fat if you training ...

Use a calorie expenditure calculator like this one to find your target estimate for intake. Count your calories and hit that estimate every day. After one or two weeks, if your weight has not decreased, reduce your caloric intake by 100-500 calories per day. If you eat more calories than you burn, you get fatter. It's that simple.

There are huge gaps between meals. Divide your large meals into 5-6 smaller meals. I am no expert but that helped me. May be you can start doing some little exercises - planks, crunches, situps. Include some 10 mins in a day for these exercises. This is my humble opinion. Hope it helps

Can you better describe what your goal is of becoming "more ripped"? After beginner stages of working out (which it sounds like you are past) most people trying to improve physique follow a gentle bulking & cutting cycle, which is generally found to have the best results. Bulking is slowly gaining muscle (and some fat) by eating at a caloric surplus, ...

THE best way to lose weight is to count calories, it's the best because it always works and because it makes you understand what you should eat and what you shouldn't. A regular mcdonalds cheeseburger is 300 kcal, eat two for lunch and you'll have no calories left and you'll be hungry in an hour! If you start counting calories, you'll notice that your ...

Congratulations on already getting a good start. You are young and can create your own healthy habits and a lifestyle that will serve you well for the rest of your life. There are some good answers on this site about getting back in shape so I'll refer you to those for more information. Diet is really key. If as you say you are eating snacks (junk), ...

I do not think it's a good idea. Higher than normal levels of protein intake is useful if you are looking to add muscle, your cardio class will have very little muscle building impact, also, some carbs and fats will be more useful for performance in your cardio class. If you still want to take whey supplements, go for the cheapest that taste, there are ...

Is this a good idea? What sort of whey protein should I go for? The Internet has loads of suggestions but I trust this community more. No this is an awful idea. First off Whey Protein is fast digesting so is only really beneficial after a muscle building workout. You need fats and/or carbs before doing cardio. You'd be better served making a simple ...

I'd start by reducing the weight until your body fat is 15%, while working out of course, to reduce muscle loss. Then add calories until you're at a slight positive balance, like 250-500 kcal/day. Adding more than that is too much, you can't pack on that much muscle so it'll be fat instead. Being a vegetarian is not a problem if you know basic food and ...
