    • Understanding Post Workout Nutrition - By Phil Learney

      Phil Learney

      The combining of various proteins, much like the differing rates of carbohydrate metabolism, allows us to utilize different absorption and uptake rates, thus modulating the postprandial (after ingestion) metabolic responses.

    • What is Beta-Alanine and Why Do You Need It?

      PhD Nov11th_SHOT 14_014.CR2.p

      Muscle Fatigue Part 1 – Lactate and Hydrogen Ion build-up

      We use the term fatigue to describe a general feeling of the overall effects of an exercise on the body or the inability to continue with an exercise. So what causes this sensation of fatigue? The reason has to do with several factors including the availability of fuel for the muscles and one of the factors we will discuss today being the mechanism of hydrogen ions in muscle cell action.

      The Importance of post-workout carbs

      Refuelling

      When we take part in strenuous bouts of exercise, the glycogen stores of the exercising muscles become depleted. For this reason, individuals engaged in intense training need to ingest a number of nutrients in order to optimise recovery.

    • Struggling to Shift Stubborn Fat? Here's Why

      Struggling to Shift Stubborn Fat Heres Why

       

      Scientists and some of us have known for a long time that those who are consistently overweight for years (BMI over 27) can find it more difficult to shift some of that stubborn fat than those lean folk (BMI below 24) or those that don’t allow themselves to be overweight for long periods of time (those that intermittently lose weight). Usually it is fat around the hips and waist that is most stubborn, hence why we often see folks in the gym performing countless stomach exercises such as crunches in the hope that this will burn the fat around the stubborn mid-section – it wont!  The longer you are fat, the tougher it is to convince the body not only to get lean, but certainly stay lean – Why is this?

      Back to Basics Image 0

      Written by Jason Rickaby- Founder and CEO of PhD Nutrition

      From the 1970’s and onwards, Bodybuilding training became synonymous with split body part training routines. Arnold trained chest for 24 sets so every other mere mortal set off on the same path and usually failed miserably to add one-tenth of the muscle mass the great man did.

      The 30 minute gun show- Here’s how to build bigger arms

      By Jason Rickaby- CEO PhD Nutrition

      Everyone wants big arms. There, I’ve said it, the cat is out of the bag. I can’t think of many guys or girls who enter the weights room and don’t want their arms to look great in a short-sleeved t-shirt. The truth is, to grow your arms into the sleeve-splitting specimens you want, you are going to need to pay your dues in the gym on the big, painful lifts and do so for many years, because big arms usually along with being able to shift some decent weight on the bench press, pull up, deadlift and squat.

    • Snacking On The Go; Nutrition For The Time-Poor

      Nutrition for the time poor mick arm

      Written by Lizzy Cole

      As a freelance nutritionist, I often get asked how I manage to maintain my weight and stay healthy when I’m always on the go. My answer? Smart snacking. Each morning before I leave the house, I fill my bag with snacks that are convenient, non-perishable and punch above their weight when it comes to nutrition. If it happens I’m so strapped for time that I forget to pack these snacks, I use the same principles to pick something up from the nearest store. Therefore, I’m confident about making healthy choices if my stomach is growling by 11am or I find myself in a 3pm meeting full of pastries. Need ideas on how to keep your own cravings at bay and stay satisfied between meals? Read on for 4 nutritionist-approved snacks that are guaranteed to keep you going when you’re on the go!

    • 5 Reasons You SHOULD Eat Saturated Fat

      Saturated Fat Article Image 1

      By Jason Rickaby- CEO and Founder PhD

      Those of you who remember the days before fat stopped being a swearword, will remember that dietary recommendations of the 80’s and early 90’s usually recommended as little fat as possible and a diet as high as 70% of calories coming from carbohydrates. These calorie recommendations weren’t usually broken down into carbohydrate types, they were quite often general in their advice. It was “Carbs are good and all fats are bad”.

      Whey Protein Image 2

      By Jason Rickaby- CEO & Founder PhD Nutrition

      Over the last 5 years, the growth in none-dairy protein sources has been fast. Gym-goers looking for alternatives to dairy have been looking at a variety of vegan protein sources, such as pea protein, hemp, brown rice and soya-the list goes on. All these plant-based protein sources offer great benefits and most of the serious trainers (and the not so serious ones) that I know, will adopt a combination of all protein sources into their diet, this is just a common-sense approach to nutrition.

    • A Closer Look at Caffeine

      Caffeine image 1

      By Jason Rickaby- CEO & Founder PhD Nutrition

      Caffeine seems to promote a love/hate relationship throughout society. Most of us use caffeine at some point through our day, some of us seem to think that it’s bad for us and try hard to cut it out of our diets, but lots of us don’t seem to know why. The truth is, like most things in life, too much of a good thing, can be a bad thing. This is definitely the case with caffeine.
