Myth: Protein is the most important nutrient for athletes.
Reality: “It is true that athletes need more protein than sedentary people. They just don’t need as much as they think. And they probably don’t need it from supplements; they’re probably getting plenty in their food,” Rosenbloom says.
But timing matters. Rosenbloom recommends that after weight training, athletes consume a little bit of protein – about 8 grams, the amount in a small carton of low-fat chocolate milk – to help their muscles rebuild.
“That’s probably all you need,” she says. “You don’t need four scoops of whey powder to get that amount of protein.”
You mean I have been wasting my money on Surge all of these years when I could’ve just went to school with my little brother and bullied him and his friends for a small carton of chocolate milk from the school cafeteria?!?!?!
