I saw a video on Men's Health the other day titled "6 Protein Myths:". After watching it I felt like it lacked depth and by not addressing some of the information I was doing a disservice to all who followed that page. The following is my observation.
Misconception #1:"Protein Builds Muscle" The first myth is kind of common sense. Contrary to popular belief protein doesn't build muscle. Protein is what your muscle is made of.
The actual story starts a while back, when I decided to participate in a shorter race distance than an Ironman. Something with a punch would be a good change of pace.I thought it would be a super idea to get the “brick” (more on that in a bit) and race the Savageman 70.0 in Deep Creek Lake, MD on September 18, 2016.
I have people approach me almost everyday seeking my advice about losing weight, or they have started started a diet and exercise regimen, but seem to have reached a plateau in their efforts. I know the topic of weight loss is always a confusing one.
Now that Labor Day has come and gone, it's now time to fall back into your fitness routine - no more excuses. Kids are back at school, vacations are over, and work schedules have gotten back to normal. Holiday engagements will be on hold until November, so we only have two months before we are immersed in the holidays.
