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™ 25 - Rich Chocolate:

    I bought total lean to kick start a 10 lb weight loss before my wedding. (I'm 5'6 goal weight 135) I follow a fairly healthy diet except when I get home from work at night I binge eat everything I see! I had a really busy week and was not able to get to the gym, but by replacing total lean with my breakfast and the binge eating, I lost 4 lbs in the first 5 days. I'm amazed with the results considering I went to the gym one time. I normally put 4 oz of skim milk, 4 ice cubes, and 2 strawberries in the blender with total lean. Delicious!

        Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ 25 - Rich Chocolate:

        Really love the flavor and that it keeps me full. The cost equalizes out if you are using it as a meal replacement 2x a day like I am. It has also stopped me from eating so many carbs and processed food - which besides weight loss was my biggest goal. I've lost 5 lbs in 2 weeks! I haven't started an exercise routine yet but intend on starting tomorrow and I look forward to seeing how that really kicks my weight loss into gear! It is smoother when you use a blender and I prefer to use unsweetened almond milk to water - much creamier. It's clumpy when you mix w/a spoon but I love the taste so much it doesn't bother me. And I really like throwing a scoop of peanut butter into the rich chocolate - YUMMY!

          Where do I begin! I have used other products before, which were good; but this one was wonderful. I like the versatility in that I can have a shake either as meal replacement, before or after a workout. The powder mixed very well and was very smooth, rather than the normal gritty texture. I mixed the powder with 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, PB2 and about 1 cup of water before I left for work. Best, most delicious ride to work I've ever had! I also bought the vanilla, which I cannot wait to try.

          This stuff, while a bit expensive, is fantastic. I usually blend mine with a banana and Almond Milk or Stawberries and Almond Milk. I have one for breakfast and lunch. The best way to mix this is with a blender however, if you use a Shaker Bottle it can be clumpy. I buy these when GMC has the Buy 1 get 1 1/2 off sale (which is usually pretty frequently.

            I've tried numerous things to help satisfy my stomach when i'am craving a meal, but nothing worked until i tried Lean 25. Add a banana, teaspoon of honey, some flaxseeds and it is the best taste ever. Even without the add-ins it tastes great. I substitute my breakfast and lunch and eat a piece of fruit with my shakes. It leaves me nice and full until dinner. I've also noticed my body toning more from my hardcore workouts. Starting to get the flat stomach that i've never had. Feeling proud of myself and thanking Lean 25 for achieving goals that I never thought i could achieve.

              I really like this product, just wish it were a little cheaper to buy. I use un-sweetened almond milk with a gnc blender bottle. As some have mentioned it take a little to mix, but its worth it. 2 scoops of this mix is strong enough to mix with 20 oz of almond milk. Its creamy and taste awesome. It really stops my hunger issues and helps me be satisfied with smaller overall meals.

                I needed to jump start a weight loss after having a baby- I seem to be stuck and not losing any weight. I saw these online and was interested because it's not loaded with sugar like a lot of other meal replacement drinks. I purchased this flavor and the vanilla from a GNC store and started them yesterday. They are pretty good, better than I expected.

                I bought this on BOGO half off, so the value was pretty good. I use it as a meal replacement. It does not blend well with non-fat milk unless you have a blender, blender bottle or glass and mixing spoon. I've had other protein based powders that dissolve much better. If you throw it in a regular water bottle and shake it, then it remains very clumpy.
                The flavor is good though, especially mixing chocolate and banana flavors. It also holds my appetite pretty well. I also include snacks like carrots, bananas or oranges.
