Your trainer is recommending them because he has to. I worked for gym that required me to sell 200 dollars of dot fit bars in order for me to reach my goal, failure to do so can result in termination. I wouldn't recommend dot fit to anyone, there are many better products out there. Just make sure your following your recommended caloric intake and getting ...

Yep, if you don't eat enough protein it's likely that the body will get protein from other less used muscles, also if you eat enough calories but not enough protein you can still improve your strength but you won't improve your size much(you could even get fatter). Strength improvements are much faster with a bigger protein intake though.

After a workout, the body must repair the fibrilar damage. As we know, protein(aminoacids) is the "food" of the muscle, so if it doesn't have this "food" then it won't repair correctly and muscle loose will occurr.

The clue in your question is "old bodybuilder" = old ideas about nutrition based on old science. However, modern nutrition does support some reasons you may not want to eat sugars (and milk also has lots of natural sugar) after 5pm, as high-sugar foods affect your insulin levels and high-insulin levels are shown to affect the body's hormones (the thyroid ...

If you do, stop drinking all sugar-containing beverages (soda, fruit juices, energy drinks) and reduce sweet foods (examples with amount of sugar), including some fruits, and also reduce plain starchy foods, like wheat bread, pasta and potatoes. Eat vegetables (salads) instead of fruits. Try to find some delicious whole-grain bread or other whole-grain ...

Also, if you eat every 3/4 hours, you won't feel so much hunger. The question here is, you need to have a diet, not a diet where you eat less, but a diet where you eat the right foods, at the right times of day, and in the right quantity. Let's say you make a first breakfast at 7 am, then another at 10 am, then lunch at 1 pm, then snack at 4 pm, then dinner ...

Your body composition as it pertains to fat is largely influenced by how much you eat and the contents of the food. Some foods, like fats and proteins, generally leave you feeling sated. Additionally, and this is speaking very broadly: Protein can be converted into glucose (very inefficiently), and it can be stored as fat. Fat can be turned into glucose, ...

J.T. Hurley's comments about having protein available for muscle growth to occur can absolutely NOT be overstated. If you're intentions for working out are to gain muscle mass and increase your overall strength, you would be doing yourself a tremendous disservice by not having plenty of protein, calories, and water readily available before, during, and after ...

I agree that working out on an empty stomach will not damage your muscles, but if I may offer my personal experience, working out on an empty stomach is no good....and obviously training when you are stuffed is also no good, unless you want to make yourself vomit. The best thing would be to have a carb rich meal about 2 hours before working out, and then go ...

So that's: ~50 miles. 3.8 mph (50/3.8 = 13.2) or 16 minutes/mile 792 minutes (13.2 * 60) = 4,391 calories (for a 170lb average person) Honey generally has 21 calories per 5ml, so that's 3 calories per ml. 4,391 (total calories) / 3 (calories per ml) = 1,463 ml. Feel free to double check my math on all of that, and it's based entirely on the average of a ...

The short answer is no. The long answer is maybe. The basic "model" of the body's energy supply is that it holds a certain amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood if the number gets too high, it binds the blood sugar with insulin and stores it in fat cells. If the number gets too low, the body uses glucagon to un-bind the sugar and return it to usability in ...

Fat burning zones are foolish. Sprinters never train in the fat burning zone and are ripped. Higher intensity exercise can raise your metabolism long after you are done training. The shortest answer is, eating carbs when training stops burning fats, as eating carbs generally stops burning fat.

An typical example of my current diet after my lifestyle changes is: Breakfast: Cornflakes, or a breakfast pot with red berries, fat free yoghurt and granola Lunch: Water and soup or fresh salad chicken and humous wrap made fresh. Dinner: Stir fry or chicken and veg and potatoes Trade out the processed food for more whole food. Lower ...
