Is late-night snacking bad for fat loss?

Posted by MYOBAND TEAM

Author: Gareth Sapstead - Fitness Director A calorie at 7.59pm is the same as a calorie at 8.01pm, and contrary to what some believe there’s no magical time where every calorie suddenly gets stored as fat. Saying that a calorie at 8.01pm will make you gain fat, is kind of like saying eating fat will make you gain fat, something we all hopefully know to be incorrect.   Eating of fats, carbohydrates, and even protein (albeit to a lesser degree) will cause you gain weight if you OVEREAT them. Your macronutrients (carbs, fat, protein, alcohol) make up your total calorie...

How to choose a healthy protein bar!

Posted by MYOBAND TEAM

Author: Kate Searl - Marketing editor   Protein consumption - amount and timing Regardless if you want to build muscle or not, protein is an essential part of the human diet. It is one of three macronutrients which are crucial for every day bodily functions and structure. Consuming a higher protein-rich diet has shown to suppress the feeling of hunger and also speed up metabolism, thus increasing the amount of calories burnt (4). Studies show that 0.75g of protein per kilogram of bodyweight is sufficient alongside regular exercise (1). Increased physical activity will increase your daily protein requirements as your...

The intra-workout carbohydrate you need!

The intra-workout carbohydrate you need!

Posted by CK CHOW

 AUTHOR: Fitness Director - Gareth Sapstead In the previous article we covered the best source of amino acids to take during your workouts, and how casein hydrolysate represents the gold-standard of intra-workout protein juices. You may recall how we mentioned briefly that in order to support those amino acids in getting to work then you need to manage insulin.  Insulin is one of the body’s most anabolic hormones and among other things acts to reduce protein breakdown. It also controls the uptake of those important amino acids, like the hydrolysed casein that powers Oblivion. This is easy to do after...

How to optimise your intra-workout supplementation

How to optimise your intra-workout supplementation

Posted by MARKETING TEAM

Arguably the best time to ingest amino acids (for example, the BCAA’s and EAA’s) are during your strength and bodybuilding workouts. Sure, if you’re eating cheeseburgers and candy bars 24-7 then you might want to look at those first before concerning yourself with what amino acids to drink and when. But, if the rest of your day is in order and you’re truly looking to optimise your workout results then you’ll want to know what will truly give you the edge.

Why should we be eating more plant-based?

Why should we be eating more plant-based?

Posted by MARKETING TEAM

Good question! To many people, the thought of having a meal without any meat just seems completely out of reach! “I’ll lack protein in my diet”, “I won’t feel full” and “How do you even cook with pulses and beans?” are statements and questions that are heard far too often! Plant-based does not mean cutting all sources from animals out of your diet. It’s just the suggestion of having one, two or as many days as you can, eating more of a variety of protein sources.

The Wonder Of "Carb Absorption Blockers" For Weight Loss

The Wonder Of "Carb Absorption Blockers" For Weight Loss

Posted by JASE OSPINA

For centuries we have been consuming carbohydrates (carbs) and to this day they still hold a dear place in our hearts and on our plates; and rightly so as they are in almost everything we consume in our diets, they taste great and they are a preferred energy source for the human body. However, in recent times we have discovered and are still uncovering the hard-hitting truth that our daily bread can become a daily problem on our waistlines. So, what could be a solution? 

Yes, you guessed it… ‘Carb Absorption Blockers’! Sounds too good to be true, right?

Working out makes us feel better, especially if you’re well on the way to hitting your goals or are already achieving them (way to go if you are!) Whether you’ve just lifted your heaviest set yet, completed your longest circuit or have run your fastest lap, your body’s going to be feeling it – from the second you stop, to the minutes and hours that follow afterwards. While most people tend to make sure they fuel their bodies with a protein snack or juice before they work out, not as many pay as much attention to what they give their bodies post-workout (perhaps it’s because of pure exhaustion or elation...
