Is it ok to take a preworkout plus protein shakes plus amino acids plus multivitamins. Distributed along the day and not at the same time.?

Is it ok to take a preworkout plus protein shakes plus amino acids plus multivitamins. Distributed along the day and not at the same time.?

Your nutrition plan: Sounds fine but it would be best to see a nutritionist so that the plan can be tailor made to fit your needs. Many over the counter multivitamins are weak. A professional can tell you which brand is best in your local area. Look more for higher doses of each vitamin w/in the mulitvit rather than a longer list of ingredients. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Protein and Exercise: This is a good question. Protein shakes help you build muscle when you are actively participating in a weight training program. Pre-workout these should probably include good sources of electrolytes and some carbs so that you can get the immediate energy to burn while you push yourself to the limits of muscle fatigue. ...Read more

Iam 19 years old male and iam around 10 to 12 kg underweight now I have started body building should I take protein shakes does it have side effects?

Good for you: It's cheaper to get a protein powder, or simply to eat lean protein foods. These "shakes" are pricey and may have empty calories. The effort you put out in the gym has much more to do with getting good results than supplementing. ...Read more

Is consuming whey protein daily harmful for my health? I workout 5 days a week and drink one or two shakes per day

There is a debate: There are two camps when it comes to whey protein derived from cheese. The vegan camp believes a link exists between dairy and cancer and autoimmune diseases. The other camp believes it helpful against inflammation and helps build muscle. My take is that the science is inconclusive either way, no one needs too much protein, and that nuts and grains like quinoa are a better source of protein. ...Read more

I'm using whey protein and creatine shakes with workouts. I'm putting on muscle but not shedding body fat. Why?

Cardio: Ultimately muscle weighs more than fat. Takes time to take off pounds. More importantly the best way to lose fat is calorie intake and cardio workouts. You need to get your heart rate up (for example interval training) to lose the fat. ...Read more

I have hypothyroidism and trying to start an intense workout routine, is it safe to drink protein shakes with my condition? Thanks.

I have hypothyroidism and trying to start an intense workout routine, is it safe to drink protein shakes with my condition? Thanks.

Yes, no problem: If your hypothyroidism is being properly treated you'll have normal levels of thyroid hormone & thus have the same levels of thyroid as a normal person & you can function normally. But many just on levothyroxine don't have adequate t3; ask your doctor to check your free t3; if not in the upper half of the normal range you may benefit from liothyronine (cytomel) as well.

Head shaking: Have you discussed with your pediatric neurologist (I assume your child has one based on the diagnosis you gave)?

Titubation: The head bobbing from side to side is titubation and comes from damage to the midline cerebellum which is responsible for coordination and balance. While a shunt is helpful for diverting cerebrospinal fluid that is not absorbing properly, there may be a blockage or loculation of cerebrospinal fluid around the fourth ventricle. Updated imaging and an evaluation with the neurosurgeon is appropriate. ...Read more

I am a 52 year old female. My iron is slightly low. Every once in awhile I will get the shakes for a few minutes. Could this be because of low iron?

I am a 52 year old female. My iron is slightly low. Every once in awhile I will get the shakes for a few minutes. Could this be because of low iron?

I don't think so: Iron deficiency may result in restless leg symptoms in some women, but a few minutes of "shakes" doesn't sound like rls. Are you taking any iron replacement? At your age, if you are post-menopausal, iron deficiency is not normal, and should be evaluated by your health care professional. You should talk to him/her about these symptoms as well. ...Read more
