Protein, The Bible has shared some core, easily digestible info on the all important macronutrient at Some sample takeaways:

  • If you are working out and are not fasting, your total protein consumption matters, not your timing.
  • If you are working out and are fasted, then timing can matter. However, pre-workout protein is more beneficial than post-workout.
  • Worrying about the speed of absorption is a waste of time.
  • Glutamine is useless if you eat enough protein.
  • BCAAs are useless if you eat enough protein, except when fasted training.
  • HMB is useful when cutting.
Solid point to help make life easier:  
As long as you get enough protein and are training after having eaten in the day, protein timing is NOT important.
