Can You Build Muscle Eating OMAD ? ____ Well, it may depend your age, research suggests. (My wife swears by it!) In this study in elderly women, one bolus meal containing ~ 80 perfect of daily protein requirements led to better protein retention compared to the same protein intake spread out over four meals! (But….I thought it was all about calories?! 🤣) For more details on how to eat OMAD and stay lean, click the link in my bio! @dr.deannamuscle Here’s some fun quotes from the study: “…..pulse diet had a positive effect on the body composition of elderly women, particularly on FFM.” “ (the pulse diet)….also resulted in higher nitrogen retention than did the spread diet because of higher whole-body protein turnover rates, particularly protein synthesis, over the whole day in the pulse diet group.” “…our results support the idea that the chronology of amino acid availability is an important and independent factor modulating nitrogen retention.” #omad #mps #protein #muscleprotein #postworkoutmeal #postworkout #fasting #circadianrhythm #strongwomen #girlswholift #fasting #intermittentfasting #autophagy #keto #paleoish
