Why is protein, in a liquid form, so important after exercising? While you exercise, nutrients that are stored in our muscles are excreted as we train. When we complete our training, our muscles then act like sponges and look to absorb those nutrients, mainly the amino acids that make up proteins, back into itself to begin the recovery process. If those nutrients are not bio-available, your muscles will still find those nutrients but it will take them from muscles that still have amino acid reserves. This means while you are trying to build muscle and lose body fat…you may actually be eating muscle and thus increasing body fat. WHAT??? Don’t overlook the importance of a high quality whey isolate protein shake immediately after your workout. It is often the most overlooked part of people’s workout and is the leading cause of delayed or lack of results.
