MIlos made a really good point in the series.
A typical (whatever THAT means, lol) protein shake, takes about an hour to digest. So an hour after you’ve had your protein shake, the amino acids from that drink will start to be broken down into amonia. So you see, it’s not actually done when it’s consumed, but at the point of digestion.
Different foods break down at different speeds. Red meat takes about, 3 hours from memory, chicken breast takes 2, also from memory. Either way, this is the argument to have around the clock protein intake, so that there is a constant process of amino acids being broken down & protein synthasis is in action.
Anymore than 2g of protein per lb of bodyweight is prolly a waste!
I know a few guys, when they diet, mostly are on zero carbs & have a whole stack of EFA (essential fatty acids). I’m not sure how effective it is, since glycogen (carbohydrates) certinly has it’s place in bulking as well as fat loss. Usually the case tho, is that 20% of your calories fit into fats.
class dismissed haha
