• Great article. Like you said your workout is the biggest key to building strength and muscle. And over course, protein is essential as well.

    The only thing I question is the timing aspect. I use to be all about have my protein shake right after my workout and all other the timing advice out there, but I’ve stopped using this advice and the results have been the same. I think the timing aspect is really overrated. As long as, you eat a high quality protein meal an 1 to 2 hours after your workout you’re fine. I can’t stand protein shakes anymore either, they are loaded with fillers and other bad ingredients. The only proteins that aren’t bad are incredibly expensive.

    Its always a lot easier to just focus on getting high quality protein meals instead of having to worry about the timing aspects. Its a lot easier and you won’t lose any muscle.

  • About tea……is decaffinenated OK too?

    • Dear Olivia,
      Thank you for reading and for your excellent question. I am not sure of the answer. It may depend on the process used to decaffeinate the tea, as some of the compounds in tea may not survive the process. That said, my guess is you’ll get some benefit from decaf tea!

    Ms Katherine: what kind of tea do you recommend?
    BlAck ? Green? And do you think Good old fashioned. Lemonade (Fresh lemons, mais oiu) is restorative and good for you?)

    • Dear Lady J,
      Thank you so much for reading my article. Ahhh, great questions! Concerning the best kind of tea, scientists have told me: Stick with the tea you enjoy most, whether white, green, oolong, or black. All impart major health benefits and the studies are not detailed or numerous enough to choose one over another, especially if you don’t enjoy it! “While fermentation causes green tea to become black, digestion may convert black tea back to green. So, they all may come out the same in the end (forgive the pun)! Regarding Lemonade: Of course, you are right that lemons – and citrus fruits in general -are great for you! That said, try to use as little sugar as possible when you make your home-made lemonade. I wouldn’t use the mixes or the store-bought kind, unfortunately, because of the high level of sugar and/or high-fructose-corn syrup.
