The Lesson: To reach peak health, we need to maximize our muscle building potential at least once per day – the problem is that 30 grams of protein is the most that your body can use at one time. So instead of eating all your protein in one sitting, it is far healthier to spread it out over 2 or 3 meals each day.

Notable Excerpt: “Maximizing muscle building synthesis in the body is not just for body-builders. It’s beneficial to all of us, but it’s particularly critical to three groups of people: those who are over 50, those who are in the process of losing weight, and those who are recovering from any kind of serious injury, illness, or surgery. All these groups are prone to accelerated muscle loss.”

  1. Hey, thanks for the amazing post, goodnewsnetwork!
    I’ve personally struggled with lack of muscle growth for years… Just couldn’t figure it out, regardless of how many things I tried.
    I know there are probably many people around here that have gone through the same thing. There are many products out there for lack of muscle growth but most didn’t work for me. There are couple that were very effective and I have suggested those to all my friends and relatives that have this problem. If you really want to gain some serious muscle, one of the best things is Muscle Advance Creatine. The usual things mentioned in blogs are worth a try too if they are cheap or don’t cost much (just make sure you find a good source of information). All those things add up at the end of the day and bring results.
