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.

Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ - Vanilla Bean:

I took this drink religiously until I found out I was pregnant. It tasted AMAZING and I looked forward to it everyday. I even craved it during my pregnancy. It has been over a year and I just repurchased the ready to feed Swiss chocolate and it tastes terrible..very artificial and almost watered down. Which is strange. I can't find anyone saying that the formula has changed but has it?? How can it taste so bad?? I can't finish the bottle. I'm on a very strict diet so I can't even try peanut butter mixed in as suggested below.

        I'm always on the go and I can grab a Total Lean Shake from the fridge and be fully satisfied for hours. The Vanilla Bean tastes like a milkshake an it's lactose free, which is a plus for me. This protein shake serves as a meal replacement daily.

            These shakes are amazing! I was extremely skeptical to try them, but was given samples of each flavor at my local GNC. Once I tried the vanilla bean - there was NO turning back. This is the ONLY protein shake that I have found to be low in calories and sugar that I have actually enjoyed drinking. Do try them!

                    This is a very good meal replacement shake. The taste is very good and keeps you full in between meals. However, I cannot say the same for GNC's customer service. I ordered 2 cans of the shake mix at the buy one get one at 50% off sale and because they were out of stock of the vanilla they cancelled that container instead of putting it on backorder or allowing me to choose to cancel it. They would not let me replace it with another flavor at the 50% off price and I could not cancel the order either because they said it had shipped. So now I lose out on the promotion price. HELLO GNC........I ordered it BECAUSE of the promotion!!! This is not good customer service and I will not be buying anything further from GNC. Buyers BEWARE! I gave this one star because of the poor customer service.

                      I was skeptical to try this flavor because someone told me it was nasty.

                      I was in a pinch for more shakes since each time I order from GNC online it takes 2-2.5 weeks to get to me so I stopped into my local drug store which has a small GNC section, they had these premade shakes and I literally cleared the rack.

                      I had this vanilla one today for breakfast, and it tastes like pudding to me and cake batter! I will be buying these again not only for flavor but these are 14 OZ and the unmixed ones are only 8-10 oz!
