I have no Grow!/Surge and I want to avoid catabolization from a couple hours of MMA training.
I do have Gatorade and Whey protein.
I have one of those bottles all the hot chicks in the gym have with cap attached to the bottle because I’m apparently untrustworthy (although I did finally get Mom to take the alligator clips off of my gloves this winter). I was going to get the purple bottle, but black matches my workout clothes better (and it’s slimming!).
What’s the proper ratio I should be using? I can’t think of the macro profile of the Gatorade offhand, but I generally full a 32oz bottle with 3 servings-worth. I think it was a Berardi email newsletter I got a long time ago that suggested adding the protein. There’s ~23g of whey in each scoop.
Am I just looking to get the raw protein number (i.e. grams) or should I be worried about getting a proper ratio? Bodyweight’s 185# if that helps.
Also, I’ve only been taking protein for the past couple days and it’s really knocked me out. Other diet has stayed mostly the same, so I don’t know if the addition of the protein has caused it or not, but does anyone it affect anyone else similarly?
