SCIENCE BEHIND PROTEIN FEEDINGS
Go Follow ?@madegains?
? Consume protein upon waking
? Consume protein pre/post workout
? Consume protein before sleep
? There are generally two goals with daily protein consumption. One is to hit the total daily target, and the second is to distribute that amount throughout the day to maximize muscle protein synthesis. (1)
? Studies by protein researchers show benefits on lean body mass in lifters that consume pre-sleep protein. (2)
? If you enjoy intermittent fasting or choose not to eat in the mornings, that’s fine. Consuming protein upon waking is likely better than waiting another 6 hours before eating, but this is a minor detail in comparison to eating in a way that works best for you and your schedule.
