I recently had surgery to repair my broken humerus. I had a spiral fracture, so it was determined that surgery was the best route to go. I had 10 screws plus a plate put in. Now of course I am looking at a long road of recovery of physical rehab to get my strength and mobility back. My hope is it wonï¿½??t take too long to get back to the gym and training like I am used to, but I know there is obviously going to be some muscle loss since I wonï¿½??t be able to lift heavy for a while.
I am not new to this, so I know I canï¿½??t eat the same calorie wise as when getting more physical activity, but the thought of losing the hardly earned muscle depresses me quite a bit. Just wondering if anyone has tips/ideas for a good kind of dietary and/or supplemental regimen to minimize muscle loss while going through this recovery process (without getting too fat)? I have read about anabolic proteins and such, but I donï¿½??t think there is anything there is out there yet that will add muscle without training. Any ideas are appreciated.
