3 Ways To Absorb MORE Protein – Burning Fat & Building Muscle With Meals
From Thomas Six Pack Abs | Posted on: 10/23/2017 | 4:51Posted in Nutrition
What’s going on, SixPackAbs.com? Thomas here with Mat – one of my coaching clients I’ve been working with for some time now – to go over how you can optimize your protein intake much more effectively with your meals.
Today, we’ll hit on 3 quick and different ways you can start using to start absorbing more protein out of your meals. Mat did a bit of research, and today I’m breaking down the science behind these methods so you at home know what to do.
Let’s get started:
#1 – 0:40 – Have More Carbs With A Protein Rich Meal (High-Glycemic Carbs)
1:10 – That spike of insulin due carbs being introduced opens the cell so that sugar can enter, and protein enters along with the sugar.
1:28 – This is the quickest and easiest way to absorb more protein, but with the downside of having to consume carbs.
1:49 – You absorbing protein, but with the caveat that you run the risk of also storing body fat because carbs go through “novo lipogenesis” – carbs convert into fats.
1:58 – Is this the best way? No. BUT, is it the easiest? Sure.
#2 – 2:07 – Hydrochloric Acid
2:20 – Hydrochloric Acid contributes to protein digestion by activating pepsinogen, the precursor to pepsin.
2:48 – Pepsin breaks down amino acids in protein to allow for better absorption and an increase in Hydrochloric Acid.
3:27 – You DON’T need to consume this exogenously – externally.
#3 – 4:09 – B6 Pyridoxine
4:40 – B6 helps break down protein and carry the dismantled amino acids to the blood stream.
5:46 – You can take a separate B6 vitamin supplement along with a meal, because when cooking a meat for your protein source you can end up with about 50-60% of B6 lost when it is cooked or digested
6:06 – Eating fish as your protein source is one way to avoid that B6 reduction – it takes less time to cook and at lower temperatures.
