In brief: Muscle Support
An eating plan for exercise must support muscle mass and promote fat burning while preventing fatigue.
We suggest 0.8-1.2 gms of high quality protein per kg body weight. Eat 3 meals with 2 snacks and 3-5 hours between meals. Limit carbs to complex types and if fatigue is an issue, eat carbs before exercise. For simplicity, eat carb later in day, and not for breakfast. Cla/ l-carnitine help.
