Clean eating isn’t about making sure you rinse off your veggies or meats before tossing them in a stir-fry. At its simplest, clean eating is about eating whole foods, or "real" foods — that means embracing foods like vegetables, fruits and whole grains, plus healthy proteins and fats. These foods are un- or minimally processed, refined, and handled-- making them as close to their natural form as possible. The idea is more about being mindful of the food's pathway between its origin and your plate, and avoiding highly refined foods with ingredients you'd need a lab technician, or at the very least, a dictionary to help you pronounce. It also means cutting back on refined grains, pesticides, additives, preservatives, unhealthy fats and large amounts of sugar and salt. So, what’s the point of eliminating basically anything you can’t get from the farm? Not only are the benefits immense, it’s not as hard as it sounds!Read More

While whey protein is still king of the protein powder marketplace, plant-based protein powders are gaining market share. So what’s fueling the rise of plant-based protein powders?...

 

Health Benefits: Like whey protein powder, plant/vegan protein powders provide easily digestible amino acids to support cellular and tissue repair. This physiological phenomenon is essential for gaining and maintaining muscle size and strength, and for supporting recovery and repair. In addition to its anabolic (muscle building) and anti-catabolic (anti-muscle wasting) effects, the amino acids found in protein powders play a central role in immune system support.

Hey,

Whey Protein is great, but you knew that already...

What you may not be aware of is how protein science has become crystal clear - a combination of fast and slow digesting proteins is superior to just using fast digesting protein(Whey)alone...

The simple reason is Whey stimulates protein synthesis (the "fast" part) while Casein decreases the breakdown of muscle tissue (the "slow" part) for an amazing 1-2 punch...

It used to be common theory that combing slow releasing proteins like Casein with fast releasing proteins like Whey would slow the release of Whey protein...

Though I have never served in the military myself, I have always had the utmost respect for the fine men and women that bravely serve the United States of America.

And as someone that makes his living helping people reach their physique goals, I thought it was high time that I geared some advice toward our soldiers.

There are many reasons people drink, including trying to fit in. Don’t be a follower, be a leader.

"I'm just getting started with lifting. What should I take?"

This is probably the most frequent question that any supplement retailer is asked. The first thing to consider is your age.

If you are 18 or younger you probably don’t need anything other than hard work and a lot of food. You need to consume quality calories and make sure that you get enough protein to feed your muscles. You will want to take in about 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight per day. This is not talking just about supplements. This is total protein intake per day. You need to know how much protein you are getting from your meals.
