We know we need to eat healthy nutritious food to have a healthy, lean, vibrant
life. But did you know that out of the 4-6 meals a day you need to eat 2 of them will
determine your success for living that life?


Yep, like mother said eat breakfast like a king. She was right according to a study at Virginia
Commonwealth University.
In an eight month study of obese people those who ate a 600 calorie breakfast with a small
lunch and dinner lost an average of 40 pounds. Your hormones that transform food into energy
are at their peak at sunrise. So a breakfast with plenty of protein (eggs, lean meat, protein drinks)
will kick up your metabolism and reduce hunger and cravings Later in the day.
So get up have a real breakfast and lose some fat.

You see, if you’re someone who regularly lift weights or participates in resistance training, or
attends boot camps the time period from when you complete your first repetition of a workout until about an hour after your workout is complete is something we call the “critical window”.

Simply put, when it comes to building muscle, losing fat, increasing performance, and recovering from exercise, this 90 minute period is more important than the other 22.5 hours of each day COMBINED.

And that’s the truth.

It is during this time that your body is extremely primed to suck up nutrients in order to:

1. Replenish muscle carbohydrate energy stores
2. Halt muscle tissue catabolism (breakdown)
3. Initiate protein synthesis (lean muscle construction)

But it only occurs IF you give your body the proper nutrients in the right proportions during this critical time.

So what are the proper nutrients?

1. Maltodextrin/Dextrose – These rapidly digested carbohydrates will quench the catabolic hormone cortisol, produce a dramatic insulin spike for the purpose of shuttling nutrients into muscle tissue, and will begin to replenish muscle glycogen stores which have been somewhat depleted during exercise.

2. Whey protein isolate – Intense training causes an extreme amount of damage to muscle tissue at the cellular level, causing muscle protein balance to slip into the negative range. This fast-digesting protein further spikes insulin, helps bump protein balance back up to positive values, and sparks protein synthesis (the construction of calorie-burning lean muscle tissue).

How about the “right proportions”?

Research has shown that combining these simple sugars and fast action proteins in a 2:1 ratio yields the greatest results.

As far as your RESULTS are concerned, there seriously isn’t anything else more important, more EFFECTIVE than dextrose/maltodextrin and whey protein isolate in a 2:1 ratio sipped both during and after your workout.


Doing this ONE thing right will have you achieving 10 times greater results than if you did everything right for the other 22.5 hours per day while leaving out this step. It’s THAT important.

And if you want to talk about using supplements, you better make sure you have the above covered before you even think about purchasing some “muscle building” supplement or “fat burner”.

So, where can you get maltodextrin/dextrose and whey protein isolate in a 2:1 ratio? Well, you have the option to purchase the ingredients directly and mix them yourself.

WARNING: If you choose this method, be prepared to hold your nose while downing the stuff in 30 seconds or less, because it ain’t gonna be appetizing.

OR, you can purchase an all-in-one product that combines the above ingredients in the proper ratios while actually tasting good, and there are several products out there that do just this.

The one I recommend (again, because I KNOW that what they say is in the bottle is actually in the bottle…a huge problem within the supplement industry) is Prograde Nutrition’s “Prograde Workout”. It has dextrose/maltodextrin and whey protein isolate in a 2:1 ratio, and it comes packaged as a great tasting vanilla shake.

Oh, and better yet, it’s on sale until tomorrow.

WORKOUT DRINK<——- The number ONE “results” supplement. Period.

To be completely honest and transparent, there is not one thing more important than proper pre/post workout supplementation. Nothing. Omit it, and you’re pretty much saying that you’re cool with putting in a ton of effort and getting 1/3 the results that you could be gettting.

Include it, religiously, and watch your results skyrocket.

WORKOUT DRINK <——- Don’t waste your workout.

I’d recommend stocking up, because this stuff doesn’t go on sale very often (maybe twice a year).
