Happy Tuesday Everyone!

A little bit about protein…
We hope the long weekend served you well and you got to enjoy some of the sunshine! Isn’t it a little bit crazy how it’s May already!?
This week Lisa is getting full reign of the newsletter where she is going to discuss protein with you and why it’s an important part of our wellbeing.
Protein; what art thou?
- Try to split your protein intake evenly throughout the day. This is particularly important for muscle protein synthesis. Many people tend to have a big protein feeding at dinner, a small one at lunch and little to none at breakfast.
- Protein is essential to support proper recovery after exercise. While it is important to include some protein in your pre-exercise meal it is even more important to have a protein feeding after to allow the muscles repair and prevent injury!
- Protein is the most satiating of the three macronutrients. Including it in meals/snacks will help to keep you feeling full for longer.
Goodbye for another two weeks…
Thanks for the read guys! Wishing you all a safe and fabulous week! Best of luck with any of the training the lads at Excape have in store for you!
