Fuel your body more effectively, and get the most from your workouts
Do you ever feel you're slogging through your workouts, barely able to complete what you've planned, and anxious to hit the showers? Or maybe you've wondered how you might take the next step, fuel your body more effectively, and get the most "bang for your buck" from your workouts. Either way, a great place to start is with the basics, and one of the most basic nutrients for optimal athletic performance is protein.

The A, B, Cs of protein and performance

Muscles are made of protein, so it's no surprise that protein is vital to enhancing their performance. Knowing what type, how much, and when to fit protein into your daily routine is the key to getting the most from this important nutrient.

Protein particulars

"Wheying" your options

For repairing hardworking muscles after a cardio or resistance training ("weight lifting") workout, nothing beats whey protein. Whey comes from dairy and allows your muscles to refuel effectively. Whey protein is found in powder form and comes in a variety of flavors, making it easy to incorporate into your diet. It can be stirred into yogurt, added to a smoothie, or mixed vigorously with water or another liquid in a lidded container.

The body best absorbs protein when eaten in amounts ranging from 15 to 30 grams in a single meal or snack. Unless you're a serious body-builder, there's no benefit to eating more than 30 grams of protein at one time.

Whey protein makes its way into muscles most efficiently when taken immediately after a workout, ideally within 30 minutes. Eating whey with carbohydrates promotes the movement of the protein from your bloodstream into your muscles as well. Aim for a ratio of 1 gram of protein for every 2 to 4 grams of carbohydrate.

As an example, combine whey powder to provide about 15 grams of protein in a blender with a banana, ice, and water. A large banana adds around 30 grams of carbohydrate and most whey powders contain a bit of carbohydrate as well. This gives you a finished smoothie with 2 to 3 grams of carbohydrate for every gram of protein-an ideal ratio.

HMB power

Amino acids are needed to build the various proteins used in the growth, repair, and maintenance of body tissues. Hydroxy-methyl butyrate, or HMB, is a breakdown product of leucine, of of the essential amino acids that are used as building blocks of protein. Studies have shown that HMB can improve strength and help the body maintain muscle mass. Ideally, HMB is used in conjunction with strength training to obtain the most benefit; it is not used to improve cardiovascular athletic performance.

Our bodies can make some HMB, but it isn't found in significant amounts in most foods, so taking a supplement is the best way to get enough HMB to enhance a resistance training routine.

The optimal amount of HMB is about 3 grams per day, but there isn't agreement on when to take it for best benefit. In order to avoid having HMB "compete" for absorption with whey protein, try taking this supplement in the morning, at bedtime, or about 15 to 30 minutes before a workout.

Final protein pointers

Be sure you're eating a good quality, well-balanced diet with plenty of vegetables, fruit, legumes (beans), and whole grains. Without these essential foods, all the whey protein and HMB in the world isn't going to do you any good. Think about creating a nutrient network in your body; they don't work well in isolation.

Also keep in mind that while whey and HMB are considered safe for most people, there are some who should not use these supplements, including people with impaired kidney or liver function. If you have questions about whether whey and HMB are safe for you, ask your doctor or pharmacist for guidance.

    This stuff should stay around as it's the best on the GNC lean line right now. Don't take this away like you did the lean birthday cake bars. This makes eating right easier.

    Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ 25 - Vanilla Birthday Cake:

    I've never had a protein shake and a girl in my office and have decided to try it. She suggested Total Lean as she's used it in the past and really liked it. On a whim, I ordered the Birthday Cake flavor because let's face it, who doesn't like birthday cake? To be honest I didn't have real high expectations. I thought it was going to be chalky and I'd basically have to choke it down. Wow was I ever wrong! This stuff is amazingly good! Like dangerously good! I made the mistake of making it my first shake and now all the other shakes I make don't even compare lol. Love love love this flavor! So I'm praying to the protein gods that this becomes a regularly offered flavor because I don't know what I'm going to do if it isn't haha.

        This is the best protein shake that I ever tasted. Please don't take this off the market? Please make this a permanent flavor. This actually taste better than the original flavors. Picked up one yesterday and I'm going back to grab more just cause I'm afraid they won't restock :-(

              I am currently drinking this shake as I write my review. I have tried many, many protein shakes and have yet to find another that tastes like this. Being on a bikini competition diet, I do not get enjoy sweets during the season. This shake helps kick the sweet cravings! I would enjoy this product even more if it was in a lesser calorie and carb form. I just take away a starch from my plan to make up for it. Please continue to make this flavor and in the larger size! A must try--it seriously tastes like cake! Yum.

                    Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ 25 - Vanilla Birthday Cake:

                    I like this one enough. I never used the Lean Shakes, but was on Slimfast(which works) but bored with the basic flavors.

                    I purchased Pumpkin Spice and this Vanilla Birthday Cake. The Pumkin Spice is EXCELLENT.
                    This one is just OK, there is a bit of that chalky aftertaste. However, the tiny color confettis are fun. I use half almond milk/half water, so maybe next time I will do all almond milk to see if that helps with this shake. Not nasty enough to return.

                    I purchased the 12oz of each, so I will just try another 12oz flavor until I find what I like. The Pumpkin Spice is worth buying the large if they sell it larger though!

                      This is probably the best flavor out there. It tastes like a vanilla milkshake. I'm going to return the yucky berry flavor to get two more bags of vanilla birthday cake!

                      The only negative is the availability of this flavor and the size it's sold in. I wish it were in the 1.83 lb tub.
