  • --> Protein for muscle growth
    To achieve the Muscle mass and lean muscle goals it is recommended to consume 1 gram of protein per lbs. of body weight (2.2 gm per Kg) every day for muscle recovery and growth. Although the required protein could be taken from the food high in protein such as chicken breast, fish, eggs, etc. but it is little impractical to consume these foods on daily basis specially due to busy schedule or availability. So, MFF whey protein 80 helps to fulfil the required protein diet in a very easy and simple way i.e. just mix one scoop protein with water, milk or juice and shake it.

    • --> Energy to train
    Carbohydrates are another important fuel in the form of energy which helps to maintain muscle glycogen concentration required during intense workout sessions. For different goals different amount of carbohydrates are required and not consuming the right amount may lead not achieving the required goals. Bodybuilding for bulking up requires higher amount of carbohydrates where as anyone looking for lean muscles should consume limited carbohydrates to reduce the overall fat.

    Never miss a meal and try to take small meals every 2-3 hours (5-8 meals a day) which keeps your metabolism running. You can include protein shake as one small meal to fulfil protein diet. If you think you have an excuse of missing the meal due to busy schedule, keep some easy to carry foods such as peanuts or other nuts in your bag or in your office and take in small amount as a snacks.

    • --> Hydration
    Not consuming the right amount of water will make your body dehydrated and dehydration is one of the reasons for many muscle injuries. Drink at least 2 litres everyday to keep your body hydrated.
