5 Nutritional Keys To Staying Anabolic All Day

How To Stay Anabolic and Build Muscle Faster!

Optimizing protein synthesis obviously is number one.

So, making sure you’re taking in substantial amounts ultimately loosen but essentially protein, amino acids every 2 to 3 hours.

Make sure your body is constantly synthesizing protein.  You’re never too long in a state of cannibalism.  Catabolism can be beneficial at some point I believe to reestablish hormone levels but just for not long periods of time.

So, if you’re sleeping for 8 hours a night, that’s great.  That’s you’re catabolic period, let’s get back on being anabolic the entire day.

For those of you who don’t know anabolism or catabolism is either on or off.  It’s like a switch, this means you’re either synthesizing protein or you’re breaking down protein.  There’s no homeostasis.  There’s no balance or staying steady.

5 nutritional keys:  I believe, it may have some nutritional gurus that disagree with me, alkalinity.

I think it’s absolutely essential.  It makes a difference to my body.

It makes a difference to how I feel, my energy.  People are going to say it’s all buffered in your stomach.  Go buy some pH strips and tell me I’m wrong.

Take a massive amount or a massive blast of lemon water or alkaline water or even electrolyte water.  Test your pH again an hour later and see what it is.

I guarantee your pH will be different.

Whether it’s substantially different or not is a different story.

Even point 1 variation on the pH scale, from my experience, can make a difference to how you feel in your performance.

Yes, your body does regulate your pH system very, very tightly but even just wavering it a little bit in the positive, slightly closer to A, is going to help you to feel better, synthesize more protein and recover faster.

Additionally, keys to staying anabolic, I highly recommend supplementing with electrolytes.

Electrolytes is a great way to stay hydrated.  It’s also a great way to stay alkaline.

We spoke about nutrition… I mean, we spoke about protein, amino acids, BCA’S is a great way to optimize protein synthesis.

Staying anabolic all day; optimize insulin sensitivity.

So, if you’re taking in too many carbohydrates your body is going to become insulin resistant.

Your hormones are going to be out of whack.  You’re likely to get fat, your estrogen is going to go up, your cortisol is going to be up.

I highly suggest optimizing insulin sensitivity only taking in carbohydrates when you need it.

Carbohydrates is not an essential nutrient, carbohydrates is conditionally an essentially nutrient so your body can produce it when it needs.  So, lots of healthy fats, lots of healthy protein, lots of vegetables, and only starchy carbs when you need it.

I’m just as guilty as everybody else.

I like eating carbohydrates sometimes so I eat it off season.

The fifth and final I’m going to say is sleep.

If you’re not sleeping, you’re not growing.

Sleep is that time for your nervous system to reset, your endocrine system to reset.  It’s absolutely necessary for your body to recover and start the next day moving in the right direction, So, if you’re not sleeping, undisturbed sleep, you should look into appropriate methods of improving sleep, keeping your liver detoxed.
