Finally, a post that isn't just typical IG bs!! #Repost @bjgaddour (@get_repost)
📖🤓💪Of the 4 macronutrients - protein, fat, carbohydrates, and alcohol (yes, alcohol is a macronutrient) - protein is the only one that actually builds and repairs muscle tissue. The latest research is clear that chugging carbs for a post-workout insulin spike isn't necessary to maximize gainz. You just need to get in at least 30-40 grams of a complete protein or 10 grams of essential amino acids. -----------------------
What about replacing all the carbs I metabolized during exercise? The fact remains that most people could burn at most about 50-100g of carbs during 30-60 minutes of intense exercise. Don't forget you're always burning a mix of fat (lower-intensity activity) and carbs (higher-intensity activity) during your workouts and you're using more fat for fuel at all other times of the day. The general fitness crowd needs to stop taking nutrition recommendations from drug-using 💉bodybuilders, people with unicorn 🦄 genetics, and extreme endurance athletes or professional exercisers who literally train all day. And if you're already lean without a lot of muscle mass, you can generally handle more carbs.
I know all the carb-lovers are gonna be butt-hurt with this one... but I'm a carb-lover too and the sooner you get the memo on this, the better. Your waistline will thank you and you can thank me later. #TheDailyBJ #Muscle #Gainz #Protein #Fat #Carbohydrates #BJGaddour #Facts #NotFakeNews
