Overdosing Protein Post-Workout

Levente 2 years ago in Diet and Nutrition updated by Marc Lobliner 2 years ago 1

I am wondering if it is really beneficial double or even triple scooping your Protein Powder after working out. 


Lot of people I know take 2-3 scoops of Protein Powder post-workout. 


Is it not too much at once? 


And can your body really absorb all the protein or are you just consuming unnecessary calories and wasting your money?

lower stomach bloating

aleccarruthers5 2 years ago in Diet and Nutrition updated by Patrick 2 years ago 1

Hello Marc,

I am 5'10 and 140ish pounds. I am trying to gain strength right now and have noticed that I have made some strides in the right direction recently. However, my lower stomach sticks out significantly further than my upper and middle stomach regions. I do have some lower ab fat, but when I press on my lower stomach it feels very hard(not just fat). I was wondering if this lower ab protrusion could be caused from bad posture when sitting, i.e. hunching over, or maybe eating too much fiber? I know answering this question may be difficult, but I am really just looking for the primary causes of lower stomach bloating/protrusion to see if I am doing any of those things. 

Thank you

Alec

Diet and testosterone levels

Pinggolfer96 2 years ago in Diet and Nutrition updated by Marc Lobliner 2 years ago 1

can short or long terms dieting cause a significant suppression of testosterone? Currently 21 years old 6 foot 2 male and have been long term dieting for my job (actor/ model). I suffer from low test and thyroid. Curious on your thoughts on this? Also I'm on exogenous TRT and thyroid replacement, but doctor wants me off testosterone once I gain more weight and check bloods. I asked if a pct would be needed to increase my lh and natural test and he said no. Your thoughts? Thanks!

What are the real benefits of fasted cardio and would you suggest taking amino acids or it is not fasted cardio anymore if you consume BCAAS during it?

What effect does sexual activity have on physical performance and muscle growth? Does having sex increase or decrease testosterone levels, or is there no noticeable effect?

Whey Concentrate vs Isolate

zboxer76 2 years ago in Diet and Nutrition updated by andy 2 years ago 2

Unless your prepping for a competition or suffer from lactose intolerance, what are the real differences between whey protein concentrate and isolate, and what would make you use one over the other?

Answer

IMO go with a good MIX like MTS Nutrition Machine Whey. Concentrate is more intact keeping the benefits of whey. The more you filter it the less cool stuff it has. That's why I recommend MTS Whey even though I make an isolate!

Meal Frequency & Timing

Randy Baker 2 years ago in Diet and Nutrition updated by andy 2 years ago 2

You always hear the idea that you should eat every 3 hours, including protein. What are your thoughts on the eating every 3 hours philosophy? It is completely necessary to do this? OR does it really just boil down to your macro numbers at the end of the day? 


I know Mike Rashid is only eating once a day at the moment, and that sparked my interest for this question.

Answer

As long as you hit macros, it makes little difference. BUT I believe eating one meal a day is not optimal at all

Pre-workout nutrition and macro combinations.

Emilio Lopez 2 years ago in Diet and Nutrition updated by Marc Lobliner 2 years ago 1

Hey Marc, Emilio from Spain here. I want to know what should I eat pre-workout, I usually take fast digesting carbs and some protein depending on how my macros for the day are. On the other hand there are some people that say I should take slow-digesting carbs like brown rice and Im kind of lost and need your help thank you. Also, I heard that you want to take fats and protein at breakfast and on your last meal and carbs and protein during the day; what's your take on this?? Thanks Marc

At your age, just make healthy food choices. Avoid fast food and eat as healthy as you can while getting in 1g protein per lb bodyweight daily
