Can protein at bedtime help muscle recovery?

By |May 25th, 2018|Featured Home, Nutrition|

The way your muscles respond to exercise training can depend largely on the availability of amino acids from protein. This is why many athletes and active individuals ensure they consume some whey protein within the first couple of hours after their workouts to accelerate muscle gains and recovery. That time frame has been called the post-exercise “protein window.” Recent research has been looking at overnight protein synthesis and its response to dietary protein before sleep, which is the subject of a recent review by researchers at Maastricht University in the USA. The review’s authors John Trommelen and Luc van Loon discuss their recent work evaluating overnight muscle protein synthesis rates and suggest that taking a greater dose of protein, around [...]

Many people think eating before bed will result in weight gain, but is there any truth behind this?

The problem many people face is the type of foods eaten in the evening tend to be high in calories and lower in positive nutrients such as fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals. These calories also often aren’t accounted for in a daily calorie target and can lead a person to consuming more calories than they need. If a person is regularly overconsuming calories this can lead to weight [...]
