Not much to update you today. The same as Tuesday; Badminton & Abs. Same supplements. Same food.

I came across some articles about Nutrition on how to eat properly. This is from Men’s Health

When you’re training hard you want to eat about an hour or two before your workouts, and again immediately afterwards. Your snacks should include both carbs and protein to help restore glycogen levels in your muscles and repair muscle tissue. A perfect post-workout snack might be a bagel with cream cheese, or a tuna and pasta salad

For the rest of the day, eat small meals at regular intervals of two or three hours, with the aim of having some protein with every meal. This way you keep your Glycogen levels topped up and prevent your body from breaking down the proteins that you need for muscles rebuilding.

Glyco.. what now??? Obviously this cannot be done when you’re fasting. 13 hours without food means protein will be broken down. I have been doing a high protein diet since 2-3 months ago, medical reason. With these new found articles, I might need to modify my diet a little bit.

I will be fasting for another 17 days. I think I should eat 3 small high protein meals. One for breaking fast. One for supper and last at 4.30am (this one with higher carbs). Sounds like a plan?

I need to research more on this.

the gym is meant to destroy your body, the kitchen is meant to build it.
