The Meal Timing Myth

So, in this post, I want to focus on the idea of “meal timing”. A lot of newbies to the fitness community, ask me a lot of questions on when to eat what, and if this should be eaten before or after training, or if they should eat carbohydrates after 6 pm, etc. All of those aforementioned things, will be focused on individually in time, but the important thing is that this list of questions in regards to this whole concept of “meal timing”, can be never ending. Aside from that, the question is warranted because a lot of supplement companies or even supplement store clerks, will advise their customers to consume their product a certain amount of minutes after their workout. The way it’s also brought across, it makes the newcomer to the fitness community a little anxious if they do not consume this meal or supplement, within the time it recommends on the product.

Creatine Monohydrate (or other derivatives)

Alright this is going to be straight to the point and without any extra information in it. But, some people have asked me about creatine and what it is, and how does it help with weight training. Not only that but some people when they ask me about creatine, they link it with whey protein asking, which is better and if they do the same thing. Because of this simple misconception and confusion, I think a lot of people are staying away from a very good product. Now, if you are just starting off, and haven’t trained a day in your life, then I’d suggest leaving creatine alone until maybe 6 months into training.
