PUMP THAT PROTEIN
Want max health gains from that shake? Enjoy it with a meal, suggests Purdue University researchers. Why? Their review of studies found this helped strength-training peeps maintain their body weight and decrease fat mass, while between-meal protein supps were associated with weight gain. The theory: you’ll probably adjust the food portion of the meal to compensate for the extra kilojoules in the drink, whereas you’ll be less likely to do that if you swig that liquid later on. Clever!
