Diet And Fitness Q*A #14

November 5, 2019 4 By William Morgan


hey guys so we’re live I don’t think
anybody’s in the chat yet so we’ll just
wait till people come through and we’ll
get started all right we’ve got four
people let’s see how many people show up
five people say hello if you’re watching
tell me where you’re from
six people hey Carl we’re about two from
eight people
yeah so basically this Q&A is gonna be a
bit more chill you can ask me any
questions you want I mean preferably
keep it about health and fitness but if
you want to ask me anything else then
just let me know so Karl says I’m from
Oklahoma City and I want to know how to
balance intimate fasting as well as
building muscle awesome I’ll get to the
question and a second we’ll just wait
until some more people show up and then
we can get started
lmao I’m from Tulsa Cindy says what time
is it over there
right now it’s 1:00 p.m. for me I think
most of you are in the States so it’s
it’s like eight nine o’clock or 11
o’clock if you’re on the east side of
the US
what’s up New York how’s it going what’s
up el Toro Cyndi el it’s pretty late for
you guys there well at least you’re
still awake cool all right one more
minute and then we’ll get started on
these questions Mitchell says your
thoughts on veganism verse a traditional
Western Western diet slash meat-eating
well I think that and anybody can do
with vegan diet and get results I mean
it doesn’t matter it really matter what
you eat if you’re in a calorie deficit
and so I mean if you eat less food than
you require but you’re just eating
plant-based foods and you’re still gonna
lose fat but when it comes to health I
honestly do think that having some meat
in your diet is gonna be a better idea
you’re gonna minimize a chance of
nutritional deficiencies not to say that
you can’t be healthy on a vegan diet for
example the American Dietetics
Association made it clear that you know
for all stages of life a vegan diet can
be healthy but the thing is it just
takes more care to get everything right
there are certain things that you just
aren’t in deep when you’re consuming
meat and like the quality of the protein
that you can consume protein sources
from meat just always gonna be superior
it’s gonna be much easier to get in all
your nutritional requirements so unless
you’re doing veganism for an ethical
reason for example if you don’t want to
be killing animals because it goes
against your morals and you follow that
that line of thought then if you don’t
need to do it for that reason then I
would still choose to consume meat there
isn’t any good quality evidence that
supports the idea that eating red meat
on a daily basis there’s going to cause
an early death there are many studies
showing that people who eat more red
meat tend to die early and have more
instances of cardiovascular disease as
with eating eggs but this doesn’t mean
that eggs and red meat are there
cause it can just be the fact that
people who eat more red meat and eggs on
average smoke more cigarettes are less
active eat more food overall so these
are just correlations and it’s it’s
nothing to stress over our silver
recommends you eat meat but like I said
you can still be healthy and get results
on a vegan diet as long as you get
enough protein the main thing I would
just make sure to do is make sure a
supplement with something like b12 make
sure to be consuming enough fat
saturated fat and monounsaturated fat on
a vegan diet and consume 10 to 20
percent extra protein and grams just to
make make up for the inferior protein
sources of pompei plant-based protein
sources okay next question
el Toro says cheapest protein sources
college kids um in all seriousness
getting some protein powder is gonna be
a lifesaver for you if you’re at
university especially buying a big big
thing of protein powder so like 5 or 10
pounds of the big thing of protein
powder that’s gonna save you a lot of
money so I would definitely recommend
getting some protein protein powder and
mixing that with some milk or some water
and just consuming a few of those each
day other things like can tuna can
chicken cheap chicken breast on sale and
bulk these are great sources of protein
so yeah basically you just want to be
buying in bulk if you’re a college
student and then just stuffing all your
protein sources in the freezer the the
cost of things are gonna depend on where
you live in the world some places are
gonna be cheapest for certain types of
foods so yeah chicken breast is always a
good idea try to avoid red meat it
typically tends to be more expensive if
you want to get ridden meat then mince
or ground beef as it’s called in u.s.
buying that in bulk is a great way to
get a lot of protein into your diet and
making something like a chili with
ground beef that’s a good way to get in
a lot of protein adding in a lot of
canned beans that’s a good way to get in
some plant-based sources of protein in
there as well so yeah hopefully that
helps I can actually make a video on
that topic because it’s I get asked that
question
quite a lot I think I had a question up
at the top that I didn’t answer Carl
says I’m from Oklahoma City and I want
to know how to balance internment
fasting as well as building muscle yeah
this is a pretty common thing that I get
asked so if your goal is to build like a
ton of muscle and gain weight then doing
something like one meal a day it
probably isn’t gonna be a good idea just
because if you’re only eating one meal a
day you’re gonna struggle to get in all
the calories that you need for the day
so the best fasting protocol for people
who still want to build muscle and eat a
generous amount of food is gonna be lean
gains so you’re gonna be fasting 16
hours a day in eating for eight hours a
day so that could look like fast until
12 p.m. and then eat from 12 p.m. to 8
p.m. and then fast from 8 p.m. to 12
p.m. the next day so 16 hours of fasting
8 hours of eating that tends to be a
really good passing schedule for people
who still want to gain some muscle and
focus on getting in enough calories so
that’s what I would start with and I
would do that on a daily basis it
doesn’t have to be between twelve and
eight just change that 8 hour when the
eating window just to suit your own
daily schedule um no problem Mitchell
Carl says I buy raw goats not currently
from a local farm so that’s my current
protein source I’m a blood type a
positive so I’ve heard that me getting
protein from vegetables is most ideal I
haven’t heard about vegetable sources
protein sources from plant-based sources
being ideal for type a a plus blood type
I haven’t heard anything about that so
I’m really gonna comment on that
it doesn’t really matter where you get
your protein that much the main thing
you should just be focusing on is the
total amount of protein you need so 0.8
to 1 grams per pound of body weight of
protein as a good amount so for example
if you weigh 150 pounds then 120 to 150
grams of protein is a good idea and for
those of you who are eating plant-based
sources 150 to 170 grams is probably a
better idea
all righty morg asks what is the best
non-stimulant product food that can help
with speeding up metabolism for fat loss
or do you need caffeine yeah so for
those of you who don’t know caffeine
will increase your metabolism slightly
right not by that much
so it’s you know it’s nothing profound
it’s not going to be amazing for that
loss but it’s gonna speed up your heart
rate and your metabolism the best
non-stimulant product food that can help
with your metabolism is gonna be
something like spicy food so adding in
chili to your food that’s gonna help um
green tea also has some compounds in it
which can help supposedly with
increasing your metabolism but to be
honest mate like the difference that
something like spicy food is gonna make
to your metabolism there’s gonna be
hardly anything so you can’t rely on
putting in some spicy food into your
diet and expect that to be the reason
why you lose more fat and speed up your
metabolism one of the best things you
can do just to keep a strong metabolism
is going to be to do a lot of strength
training and do a lot of high-intensity
interval training so these sorts of
exercises are going to cause an increase
in your metabolism after you’ve stopped
working out because these requirements
these exercises require a lot of oxygen
after the workout that requirement for
oxygen after the workout is going to
require more energy from your body so
doing things like strength training and
Sprint’s that’s going to boost your
metabolism slightly after your workout
so you can consider doing that building
muscle is also going to increase your
metabolism just because muscle requires
more energy to hold on to it’s not that
much but it does help so definitely
recommend focusing on strength training
if you’re not already but when it comes
to certain foods to increase your
metabolism I mean they’re out there but
I wouldn’t expect anything magic Oh
drinking enough water is gonna help
research has shown that the moment you
drink a big glass of water your
metabolism speeds up to deal with it so
definitely staying hydrated is going to
be important and also doing intermittent
fasting so despite what many people
think frequent meals don’t actually
boost your metabolism and short-term and
cement fasting
to increase from metabolism by about
seven to fourteen percent and some weak
studies so doing a bit of fasting may
actually help increase your metabolism
and that can possibly be due to the
increase and catecholamines like
adrenaline that occurs when you’re
fasting so okay and don’t expect magical
results from that but doing a bit of
fasting eating some spicy food and
definitely doing strength training is
going to help okay Carl says but that
makes me think of chickpeas or soy
however I heard that those break down as
estrogen and the body
okay so eating soy doesn’t actually turn
you into a soy boy bitch and grow like
tits
right that’s a big misconception that
people have and a lot of people are
gonna say that you should minimize soy
in your diet because it’s gonna increase
estrogen um this is actually completely
false and when you look at the best
study we have on this a meta-analysis
that looks at all the studies on this
question other results actually show
that eating soy in your diet you know a
normal amount that some soy milks and
beans this really isn’t gonna effective
testosterone levels at all um and even
if it did and a decrease your
testosterone levels by 10 to 20 percent
that decrease would have little to no
impact at all on things like muscle gain
so eating soy in your diet is nothing to
stress over about it can be a great
source of protein and in fact it’s
actually one of the best plant-based
sources of protein so I wouldn’t go and
completely avoid soy just because of
those things you’ve heard on the
internet keep eating it if you want
preferably you’re gonna get your protein
from sources like eggs and steak but soy
isn’t anything to stress out about
alright um
Nicolas what’s up let me just catch my
breath for a bit
I hardly breathe when I talk for some
reason it’s a weird how did I have um so
Nicola says hi from Vancouver I found
intamin fasting to work really well for
me in the past recently I’ve started a
job that requires shift work graveyards
as a solo recommended um yeah I mean
passing isn’t really gonna have any
impact on your body composition whether
you’re doing graveyard shifts the only
thing you’re going to have to do is just
change when you do interment passing so
instead of doing it during the day maybe
you’re gonna have to do it during the
night so you’re gonna have to have your
eating window during the night so you
can eat your food then and that’s
basically the only ship you’re going to
have to make uh if possible I know this
is a really you know kind of silly thing
to ask of you but try look for another
job if you can it’s just there’s a
stupid thing to ask I understand I’m
asking a lot but try to find a different
door because graveyard shifts are really
bad for your health it’s we’re not made
to to stay up all night like that and
they can increase your chance of things
like depression and so if you can try
look for something better
where you don’t have to work graveyards
but I know that’s not always in your
control so just a suggestion but no it’s
not really gonna have to change how you
do intermittent fasting just when you do
it so um
ad Bala says do let loose on vacation or
do you try to limit weight gain by being
strategic me honestly uh if I go on
vacation some way you know I’m gonna
have some beers I’m gonna eat some tasty
food just because I know how it impacts
me and I hey I have self-control I think
that if you’re on a diet and you’re
trying to lose a bunch of that then I
think it’s more important to be
strategic about it so you can include
your vacation as a diet break way you
kind of let loose a bit and eat more
food but I wouldn’t go too crazy you
know if you completely let loose and you
eat as much food as you want and you go
to a buffet every single day then you
might set back some of those results
you’ve had in the in the past few weeks
so you know I think it’s fine to have
some unhealthy food like ice cream and
these sorts of things but just try to
control yourself and it shouldn’t make
the biggest dent in your progress if
you’re on vacation hey Lena Lena says is
that Jose only Lena or liner let me know
if I’m saying it right she asks I have a
problem with controlling my appetite
any tips when I don’t eat it’s fine but
as soon as I put a little bit of food in
my mouth it’s like floodgates open and I
can’t stop eating no I completely
understand that I’ve been through that
myself and a lot of people have helped
have that problem the the the first
thing I would do is increase your
protein intake so carbs aren’t bad for
you but I would highly recommend eating
more protein in your diet and it’s
really gonna help switch some hormones
in your body and it’s going to help
control that appetite more so eating
some more chicken beans
foods high in protein are gonna help
with your appetite as opposed to just
eating foods that are heavy in carbs and
low in protein so protein is gonna help
decrease your appetite if you have done
that then I would either try to eat very
frequent and small meals or less
frequent and larger meal so either try
to eat six or seven small meals a day or
on the other extreme one or two big
meals a day and one of these should help
with controlling your appetite other
than that the other thing you can do is
just find the reason why you’re binging
like why is why is it that you can’t
stop putting food in your mouth like
what’s the deeper reason Bajada try to
figure that out and sold that and I
think that’s something you should focus
on so hopefully that helps first thing
you should be doing is increasing
protein intake what’s up Ellen how’s it
going good to see you in the chat man
so Pasha Pasha PA is curious to know
what your favorite fermented foods are
and whether fermented foods truly make a
difference in one’s diet I’m currently
looking in Korea right now so I could it
be I’ve got to be respect respectful to
the country and say that kimchi is by
far my favorite fermented food I love
kimchi and I eat it actually on a daily
basis has a ton of good bacteria I find
that it helps with my digestion a lot
and I just love the taste of it so I
know it can be difficult to find kimchi
at a reasonable price if you’re living
in the Western world but finding some
kimchi or sauerkraut fermented foods
like this they’re going to be super
super healthy for you and I would
definitely recommend including them and
your diet on a daily basis to keep your
gut microbiome healthy so my personal
favorite if that’s what you were asking
is has always been
higher-self Korea what’s up
I often work late in the night I feel so
drained and grave sweats before going to
bed to get in sugar so you’re eating a
ton of sugar before you get into bed the
problem is I wake up quite down and
dizzy any idea on how to replenish
probably um you know eating before you
go to bed isn’t a isn’t the worst thing
in the world eating some sugar before
you go to bed isn’t the worst thing in
the world but what you need to focus on
is just making sure not to consume too
much for the entire day that’s first of
all in terms of fat loss when it comes
to feeling like crap when you wake up in
the morning this can be due to a lot of
things right so one thing I would try to
do is just try to minimize your blue
light exposure before you go to bed so
whether that mean turning off your phone
and get a half an hour before you sleep
I know that can be really difficult to
do but something like that is important
to do try to dim the lights in your
house before you go to bed you want to
you want to prevent your body thinking
that it’s daytime um another thing you
can do is not eat any not consume any
caffeine close to the time you sleep so
whether it be consuming foods or
chocolate a lot of chocolate based foods
have caffeine many people don’t know
that so minimizing caffeine intake
before bed is going to be a really good
idea if you choose to drink caffeine
whether that be through coffee try and
consume that as early in the day as
possible because despite what you think
if you consume it at 12 o’clock and then
you sleep at 12 o’clock you’re still
gonna have quite a bit of that caffeine
in your bloodstream and that’s going to
affect how deep you can sleep so try to
minimize caffeine as much as possible if
you feel you know like crap in the
morning and you wake up this can be due
to so many things and I might not just
be due to your diet so there are a
number of things you can do there and
it’s difficult for me to give you one
recommendation I would try to keep a
consistent schedule as much as possible
and try to keep a similar routine at
night before you sleep because if you
keep a similar routine then you can
easily adjust things and see how that
affects you and you can find that
variable that’s that’s keeping you
waking up and feeling replenished so
yeah it’s difficult for me to give you a
specific answer there so sorry about
that
Chad say is Huckle how do you suggest
training – oh and don’t work out to
close this to go into bed so try to keep
your intense workouts um earlier in the
day and also don’t try to workout heavy
if you’re weightlifting too often if you
do things like deadlifts and you do a
really really heavy weight frequently
it’s gonna burn out your central nervous
system and that can be one of the
reasons why you feel fatigued okay so
next question Chad says – look how often
do suggest training someone who wants to
seriously commit to the gym but hasn’t
done many workouts before if you are new
to the gym and you’re new to strength
training research has shown that
beginners respond best to training three
times per week and training all their
muscles three times per week so best
thing you can do is 3 full-body workouts
per week so work out a on Monday for
example train your entire body with
weights focus on strength lower reps
higher weight a workout B Wednesday
focus on higher reps lighter weight
workouts see again a full body workout
focus again on strength and lower reps
heavier weight and what you want to be
doing as a beginner is just focusing on
building your base of strength getting
stronger at compound movements like
squats deadlifts benchpress pull-ups
forget about the bicep curls focus on
those big compound movements and try to
get stronger there is no perfect
training frequency as a beginner you
know you can do 4 days 5 days 6 days the
best thing you can do is pick something
that you’re gonna be consistent with but
from my experience training clients at
the gym and what I’ve seen in the
research the best thing you can start
with is 3 full-body workouts training
your entire body for the week a few days
ago I actually made a video and gave you
guys a free beginners workout so if you
go to my channel then you can check that
out and I give you guys a free 3 full
boy day workout for beginners for both
men and women so definitely go and check
out that video I think it’s the the last
I think it was 3
where I made that video so different go
and check that out and that will be the
perfect routine for you to start with
Chad so hopefully that helps okay
Lina okay good say hey I said it right
AB ad bola says you like carbs with fat
more what’s your favorite foods at each
macronutrient me personally what I like
is I like carbs more I like to eat carbs
I like protein to be honest I like
eating chicken breast steak so I really
like my meat that’s probably my favorite
kind of food to eat out of everything
yeah I mean there I like all foods so
there aren’t really many foods I don’t
like in the world so it’s it’s I could
be here for hours explaining what foods
I like and don’t like Carl says thank
you for your time and attention I have
so many questions
you’re a wealth of knowledge thank you
I’m here to help this is my job this is
what I’m here for Carl so ask away um hi
self Korea says thanks a lot that was
great
are you living in Korea by the way hi
self just wondering Nelson what’s up
Nelson says I love you show if possible
could you do a video of beginning
strength training with all the muscle
groups and specific exercises are the
best yes of course I can get that done
for you sometime in the future all right
Nelson had the same question so never
mind Nelson says new question I’m 49
years old and I want to lose ten pounds
in three weeks best advice for how to do
this in the fastest time possible okay
so ten pounds and three weeks as
possible you’re gonna have to lose fat
quite aggressively
best thing you can do is firstly jump on
that beginners program that I just
forward you to so go to that video where
I explain how to do the three day a week
begin a strength training program I
would also add in two days of cardio so
play some sports two days of the week
run on the treadmill maybe do some
strength some sprints if your body can
handle that so I would do that as well
two days a week so you’re exercising
five days total I would go to a site
called
go to this site put in all your
information as accurately as possible
it’s gonna give you your tee vee
which could be like 2500 and then you
want to take that down about 750 under
that so for example that would be the
number of calories you would eat eat
about one grab per pound of protein and
the rest split that out from carbs and
fat about 10.4 grams per pound of body
weight of fat is a good idea and in the
rest from cogs but these are gonna be
your calories and your macros track
these on my fitness and then track those
eat 750 calories under your maintenance
on exercise hard try to get stronger in
the gym and then wait it out and after a
few weeks you will lose some fat whether
you lose 10 pounds is gonna depend on a
number of things but you will lose close
to that if you if you drop your calories
like this you train it really hard it’s
not all gonna be fat some of its gonna
be water and glycogen but you will
definitely see some results if you drop
your calories this slow and you do that
for a few weeks time that’s the basics
there’s more to it of course but that’s
basically the the fundamentals of what
you need to do to UM to drop fat so
hopefully that helps oh speaking so much
I’m glad there’s a little break but any
other questions leave them live into
down below in the chat box and I’ll
answer them Nelson says thanks a lot
you’re the best thank you for all of us
and your videos on the stocks I love
more thanks man thanks Nelson I’m happy
to help
all right guys five more minutes and
then we’re gonna shut this chat down so
ask your questions here ask your last
questions anything you want video
requests in the future and and whatever
yes I do love Surya in Korea I have my
own YouTube channel would love to
meet you for coffee if you have an hour
in the next few days and so yeah that’s
definitely something we can organize I
live in jock sung and Gangnam so we can
sort that out maybe send me a message on
Facebook or YouTube or something like
that Carl says what’s the most rewarding
and satisfying thing you could do with
your life um that’s a pretty deep
question you know find work that you
love work for yourself that’s what I’m
trying to do and just make money doing
what you enjoy doing something that’s
satisfying something that’s helping
others and something that you find
deeply rewarding suddenly says what are
you doing in Korea I’m working on my
youtube channel you know I’m trying to
grow my YouTube channel as a business
trying to make a living from what I I
love doing which is helping you guys so
that’s what I’m doing here in Korea
currently staying with my cousin for a
few months here so I’m gonna be in Korea
for about six months I think alcaman
says hi Phillip from the United States
at the end of the day everyone says
Fawcett or non facit cardio or the same
is there any benefits of our Sicario
I’ve been fasting and feel great um yeah
there are some studies showing that
fasted cardio may be better for fat loss
but overall the results are gonna be the
same
think about it like this the logic
behind fasted cardio is that you’re not
gonna have carbs in your system and
because of that you’re going to access
your fat stores straightaway and bone
through the fat but the truth is after
you are done with that your body is
gonna burn carbs after that when you
consume them but if you eat the carbs
before you workout your body is going to
consume and burn the carbs and then the
fat after the carbs are gone from
working out so if your eating is the
same amount of food in the same amount
of protein the difference that this is
gonna make for fat loss is really not
gonna be that big there are some studies
showing that fasted cardio was a bit
better for fat loss between some groups
of people but long-term are the
difference that this is gonna make if
your calories and protein are the same
there’s gonna be next and nothing so the
most important thing you can do is just
choose what you enjoy the most so if you
personally are finding that fasted
cardio or faster training in the gym is
better and you enjoy it more and you
find that you can six your workouts more
consistently by doing that then I would
highly recommend you
keep doing what you’re doing so yeah
just keep doing what you can do
consistently uh bola ad bola says who is
your favorite youtuber and why I don’t
really watch that many youtubers or any
youtuber and specific to be honest just
focus on on my own stuff and and and
making my own content so you know I
might watch random videos from time to
time I do like their comedian louis c.k
if you guys have heard of them I like
watching him when I have some spare time
always gives me the good belly laughs
and when I’m in need of them so George
says love your channel and your advice
greetings from Panama what’s up George
thanks so much for the support really
appreciate it arrghh also says why does
the body lose fat lastly and the lowest
stomach area hard question to answer but
I’ve been fasting for two months doing
an 18-6 our fasting schedule and
high-intensity interval training during
the fasted state but lower abs ain’t
showing so throughout the body we have
beta receptors and alpha receptors and
fat stores and beta receptors are what
we release fat so certain areas of the
body have a higher ratio of beta to
alpha receptors which is why you might
lose more fat in your face first before
your belly and then for the belly many
people will have more alpha versus beta
receptors which is why less fat will be
released from there first so this is one
reason why there’s a preferential
difference in the amount of fat lost
from certain areas in the body between
men and women because women may have
areas in the body such as their legs and
their butt which have more alpha
receptors as opposed to beta receptors
hence why they don’t lose fat from their
thirst so this accounts for the
differences between individuals and why
some people will lose fat in their gut
around their gut and some people won’t
until they were a much lower body fat
percentage so there are some people that
are gonna say that fasted cardio is
going to be better for losing fat around
the lower abs because you’re going to
increase blood flow in a fasted state
from training that’s going to increase
something called catecholamines like
adrenaline and noradrenaline that’s
going to get to those beta receptors and
it’s going to release fat
beta receptors from lipolysis but
overall you’re still going to have to
drop your overall body fat percentage to
lose that fat from your lower ab region
so unfortunately you can’t do much to
target your belly fat and the best thing
you can do in your situation right now
is the overall focus on increasing your
strength and your muscle mass and
continue to stay in a calorie deficit
while eating enough protein and getting
your body fat lower and lower and lower
and for some people it sucks you know
I’m the same I hold body fat on my lower
abs so I can see my thirst for abs and
then in my lower abs I still stuck there
with that so the best thing you can do
is just keep losing fat overall and
trying to maintain on to your muscle and
and that’s what’s that’s the only thing
you can do so hopefully that quick
explanation explained why it’s more
difficult to lose fat in the lower abs
first and hopefully that helps good luck
to you I know it’s tough but stick with
it and if you keep falling you know my
advice and you stay in the calorie
deficit you train hard you eat enough
protein you are gonna lose those that
lower ab fat eventually just keep
sticking with it then Rahul says what
books do you recommend for time
management none I need a better my time
management myself so I’m not the best
person to ask for that question and all
honesty mate um ad bowler says what’s
your favorite what about your favorite
interview um favorite interview honestly
off the top of my head I don’t I don’t
really know I don’t really know what my
favorite interview is I’ve watched a lot
of interviews on YouTube before I
definitely like TED Talks I think
they’re cool and worth watching the
ghost of John Moore don’t say is hello
how are you I’m good how are you doing
Allen says hi Augusto good Agustin okay
I don’t know what that means
um yeah okay guys so I think that’s
gonna be it for the livestream before
you go I want to hear from you guys hey
Gabrielle I want to help from you guys
what video was you want to see for me in
the future okay so heading off now but
leave those video requests down below
right now and if I good and if they I
think they’re a good option for videos
in the future I’m gonna turn into a
video so
leave them down below right now and I’ll
get to answering them in the future
Tiago says hey Phillip how I hope you’re
doing great I wanted to ask you about
cobb timing for muscle growth is it true
that after a workout it’s recommended to
have both protein and carbs okay before
I go I’ll answer this because it’s an
interesting question
um so cobb timing isn’t really gonna
matter for muscle growth our truth is
despite what many people think that
carbs don’t actually influence muscle
growth at all so we don’t need carbs for
muscle growth muscle growth is primarily
going to be determined by your protein
intake so whether you consume carbs or
not that’s really not going to have an
impact directly on muscle growth of the
way carbs influence muscle growth are
gonna be with the effect that they have
on muscle glycogen so carbs are gonna
increase muscle glycogen in the muscle
which basically means that increase the
amount of sugar in the muscle and that’s
gonna help you train harder and perform
better at the gym which is gonna lead to
data muscle growth because you’re going
to be able to get stronger and perform
better at the gym I’m from eating those
cards so cobb timing is kind of relevant
to your workout performance having some
fast digesting carbs something like a
banana oats 3040 minutes before you work
up is gonna help increase your
performance in the gym but then again
many studies have shown that not eating
before you workout there’s gonna be fine
and your performance isn’t really going
to be negatively affected if you don’t
eat before you work out and some people
theorize that that’s because of the
increase in things like adrenaline
before the workout if you don’t eat so
to answer your question don’t worry so
much about carb timing worry more so
about the total amount of carbohydrates
you consume in the entire day um in an
ideal scenario you want to be consuming
some protein and carbs 40 minutes before
you workout and also some protein and
carbs after your workout if you don’t
train but if you don’t eat before you
work then it’s much more important to
consume some protein after your workout
but if you consume some carbs and some
protein before your workout then it’s
less important to consume protein after
your workout because your pro your body
is still going to be
to use the protein that you consumed
before the workout to help with protein
synthesis synthesis and recovery after
your workout so hopefully that answers
your question
um that’s it for the live stream for
today guys thank you so much for
watching as always uh and I will see you
guys later alright leave those video
requests in the chat box down below and
I’ll answer them alright that’s it from
me peace out and have a great day
