As you gear up for a new beginning, let's debunk a common nutrition myth: the "anabolic window." Do you really need to consume protein within 30 minutes of exercising for optimal results? ⁠

Recent data suggests that the timing of protein intake might be less crucial than previously believed. Instead of fixating on a narrow post-exercise window, focus on maintaining a consistent overall protein intake throughout the day. Your body benefits from protein at any time, supporting muscle synthesis and recovery. ⁠ Most importantly, if you don’t eat before training, it’s important to eat right after.⁠

Exploring anabolic exercise? Here's a guide for you:⁠

1. Prioritize Strength Training: Elevate anabolism and muscle growth through weightlifting or bodyweight exercises.⁠

2. Fuel Right: Maintain a 3:1 or 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein to optimize your diet for anabolic benefits.⁠

3. Timely Nutrition: Capitalize on the 30-minute anabolic window post-workout by consuming a well-prepared meal. Save time by planning ahead.⁠

Remember, hydration is key! Whether you're diving into anabolic exercise or not, make sure to stay well-hydrated by drinking water before, during, and after your workouts.⁠
