There are periods when I supplement with protein, and there are periods when I don’t. I’ve done this off and on enough so as to notice the difference between those two periods. In this article, I’ll briefly go over what protein is, my thoughts on supplementation, and what a protein supplement can do for your fitness, and fat loss (fat burning) journey. If you have any questions, as always, you can comment here or contact me via e-mail on my social media accounts.
Protein is one of the three macronutrients your body needs to run it’s metabolic processes. Protein is important for repairing, maintaining, and building muscle tissue. When you exercise, you are stressing and taxing your muscle tissue which cause micro tears. When those micro tears are repaired, the muscle comes back stronger and more capable of handling the stress and tax you previously placed upon it.
