We’ve heard for years that WHEN you eat can make a huge difference. We’ve also heard that WHEN we eat carbs…or fat…or protein…can be critical to making the biggest gains, or losing the most weight, etc. What’s the actual story?

Here are the additional angles we came up with:

  • Are there time windows for maximizing gains (or weight loss)?
  • Does timing matter more for some people than others?
  • Do you need to build your life – and your workouts --- around your meals?
  • Can you eat so much protein at one time that your body can’t use it all?
  • Will too much protein damage your kidneys?

Dr. Mike Israetel comes in at about 11:21 to set the record straight.

A cofounder of Renaissance Periodization, Dr. Mike Israetel​ holds a PhD in Sport Physiology from East Tennessee State University. Formerly a professor of Exercise and Sport Science in the School of Public Health at Temple University in Philadelphia, Mike has taught several courses, including Nutrition for Public Health, Advanced Sports Nutrition and Exercise, and Nutrition and Behavior.
