Combine Whey Protein, Carbohydrate & Creatine…& Throw Some Fat In Too For Best Results!

The International Society of Sports Nutrition, (2010) support the benefits of adding creatine monohydrate, and believe it or not...fat, to a protein and carbohydrate cocktail. They assert that if combined with regular resistance training, the body’s response to training in relation to strength and body composition is markedly improved.

For the purpose of training, dietary focus should be on delivering adequate protein and carbs, but the addition of optimal amounts of fat may help to control glycaemic (blood sugar) levels as well as encourage fat burning ahead of fat storage!

To achieve this either add approx 5g of creatine monohydrate to a standard whey protein powder, mix with water/milk/juice and add approx 15ml of essential omega oil to this blend and mix. Not only will you get the above mentioned benefits, but you’ll also lubricate your joints, reduce inflammation through the optimal 2:1:1 ratio of omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids.
