Lies, Myths, heated discussions everywhere where you look. One could almost think that one is in the middle of a political debate. But it is only one of the current discussions on proteins in a normal gym.
This protein is a simple nutrient. The amino acids contained in dietary protein, are the basic building blocks of the body to form new muscle can. If you take too little of it to you, do not grow your muscles. As simple as that.
That’s why protein plays such an important role in our sport, and that’s probably the reason why there are so protein myths and lies about this nutrient. Whether it’s about how much protein you need, how much the body can digest at one time or which form of the protein is best – there are thousands of opinions on this.
In this post I would like to clarify the five biggest misconceptions and protein myths and give you the reader a proper understanding of this important nutrient.
