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.

    I love GNC's Lean shake period; however these new 25G High -Protein shake in Chocolate is disgusting. Every other flavor is fine but it tastes like watered down chocolate.I do not recommend this flavor.

      Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ - Swiss Chocolate:

      Not going to lie, I went into this really skeptical and I have to say I'm really glad I tried it. I brought the four pack and I've drank them by themselves or added in some peanut butter and bananas to create a post workout drink and usually about half way through I feel like a stuffed pig. It lasts for hours and I have a ton of energy on it. I am going to pick up a case now!

      Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ - Swiss Chocolate:

      Well I am an emotional eater, so when I stepped on the scale at 212, I hit the roof with disappointment in myself. Ugh! So anyway, I try to get to the gym when I can, which isn't really often. I have anxiety attacks so have to be careful what I put in my body. Started the rtd shakes because I cant really be bothered to mix and mess with the powder. Got the chocolate and strawberry. Started yesterday and took some of the lean pill pack pills, and from the day I started a day and a half ago, I was 212.2, now I am 210. ONE DAY AND A HALF! So I do one shake for breakfast, one shake for lunch, and then a salad for dinner then a small snack like a pudding or something, drink water and tea..........I can not believe that I lost almost 2 and a half lbs in one day..I know that its probably water weight, but who cares, its weight!

      My mind wants to binge on food, but after seeing the scale, I want to stick to this and keep going and see how much more I can lose. My goal is 40lbs. So today I took most of the lean pack pill pack (a lot of pills though, thats one downfall), so now I think I will go to the gym and see if I can start to get into that again. Really motivating!

      I was disappointed to read some comments on here, no one really mentions their weight loss amount, but I will update everyone.

      By the way, shakes taste INCREDIBLE, I could drink them all day, but alas will stick to the plan. The guy at GNC told me that I could use sparingly, as a meal replacement, or snack. I chose to do it this way and wow, cant be happier with the results after just one day. Will keep everyone updated!

        These RTD shakes act a good meal replacement. But you have to follow the given diet plan who includes consuming a low calorie snack like a fruit in between after every shake.
        They taste good and I find the seasonal pumpkin spice one really good to have.

        It is pricey but worth it. I would spend thus much buying something on the road not as healthy. I use it as part of my weight lose regiment. I have lost over 100 lbs this past year and I use this daily.

        I follow the specials online and order by the cases when I can get a big band for my buck. I swear by this stuff.

                I use these as meal replacements. They fill me up. I love all the flavors, especially the pumpkin spice which is only available around Thanksgiving. I put extra pumpkin in that one and it tastes like pumpkin pie. Have lost 20 pounds in 2 months. Drink one for lunch and sometimes breakfast. Try to eat low carb.
