Intermittent Fasting

There are many different crash diets and weight loss theories knocking about on the Internet and in magazines now a days, however one that has really intrigued me over the last few weeks has been Intermittent Fasting.

After carrying out some research on this form of diet it has come to my attention that there are a few variations in the way that people undertake the fast.

It seems the most popular method was alternate day fasting, so for example you would be fasting on a Monday probably consuming less than 500 calories and then on the Tuesday you would consume your normal amount of food 'feeding up' for your next day of fasting.
For some people they find that this type of diet is to difficult to manage therefore they will only fast for 2 days a week slowly incorporating more days in as they feel comfortable.

Another method which really caught my eye was the 18-6 split, this is where you are in fasting mode for 18 hours leading up to 6 hours worth of feeding time. To myself personally I feel that this method would be more achievable for most people as the 18 hours fasting will include sleeping hours.
The aim of the fasting period is to prepare your body to take in a large quantity of clean food in a small period of time, obviously if you was to fill up on stodgy foods you would soon have an uncomfortable full feeling leading to you being unable to consume enough food to function.

Researchers claim that Intermittent Fasting can not only help you shed body fat but also aid increasing lean muscle mass.

I am going to try Intermittent Fasting myself over an 8 week period using the following method.
Straight split of 18 hours fast with 6 hours feed time consuming only clean meals ie - meat, veg, rice, sweet potato, fish, fruit

I plan to train after my first meal and consume most of my carbohydrates with my post-workout meal slowly decreasing the amount of carbs as the feeding period goes on.

I will be supplementing with a very low calorie and carb protein supplement once a day during the fasting period and immediately after work-out.

Over the next few weeks I will be looking into the different medical studies regarding Intermittent Fasting and will keep up to date with progress on this blog.

Creatine Supplements

Creatine Supplements

Creatine is naturally produced in the human body from amino acids primarily in the kidney and liver. It is transported in the blood for use by muscles.

Creatine is not an essential nutrient, as it is manufactured in the human body from L-arginine, glycine, and L-methionine.

In humans and animals, approximately half of stored creatine originates from food (about 1g a day, mainly from meat). A study, involving 18 vegetarians and 24 non-vegetarians, on the effect of creatine in vegetarians showed that total creatine was significantly lower than in non-vegetarians.

Since vegetables do not contain the primary source of creatine, vegetarians can be expected to show lower levels of directly derived muscle creatine. However, the subjects happened to show the same levels after using Creatine supplements.

Given the fact that creatine can be synthesized from amino acids, protein sources rich in these amino acids can be expected to provide adequate capability of native biosynthesis in the human body.
Creatine is used by the body for an energy source and production, in the form of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). Creatine is designed and manufactured to provide benefits in improving performance in high-intensity, short-duration activities such as weight lifting. Whilst taking Creatine the user’s body will increases production of ATP whilst decreasing the exhaustion of muscles, helping to contain muscle fatigue by reducing the levels lactic acid, an energy waste.

The effect of creatine supplementation has been studied in people with different levels of fitness and athletic ability, ranging from elite athletes to relatively unfit beginners. Creatine supplementation had a performance-enhancing effect for a wide range of sports.;
For sports that require speed, such as sprinting, long jump, swimming, kayaking/rowing, and for intensive strength training by bodybuilders and cyclists, short-term creatine supplementation can greatly improve performance in the areas of maximum strength and endurance (5-15%), with interval training in the maximum range (5-20%), with power production in short sprints (approx. 30%,) and in training with repetitive sprints (5-15%).

 We have a wide range Discount Supplements, including Creatine monohydrate powders and capsules from the leading brands in sports nutrition, but if you would like more information feel free to get in touch and our competitive bodybuilders will email you with answers.
