Muscle tightening diet: What you need to know

Tightening is a process that needs to be taken seriously for best results. Find out what you need to know about the diet when tightening muscles through the article below.

1. Protein is the most important

A protein-centric diet is the most important for muscle contraction, because protein is the basic building block for muscle structure. The process of tightening muscles must be combined with diet and exercise, and during exercise, the body goes into a catabolic state, causing muscle loss. After completing the exercise, the body returns to the anabolic state, and the protein in the diet will provide the raw materials for the body to rebuild the lost muscle, forming "lean" muscle mass.
Ideally, athletes should eat a serving of protein both before and after training. However, you should not only eat protein, but eat a little carbohydrate, because when combining carbohydrates with protein, carbohydrates will help the body increase protein absorption, and also provide the body with the most amount of energy. intended for training. Whey protein used with peanut butter, oat porridge, ... is a very convenient and feasible suggestion for practitioners.
