PUMP THAT PRO­TEIN

Women's Health (South Africa) - - DISCUSS -

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!
