Protein timing doesn’t matter 

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on are updated regularly over the years (see updates page).

So apparently this bit of conventional wisdom about weight training is bogus: “Eating protein soon after a workout will help build muscle.”

For years I believed it in that way that we believe things that matter to us … but don’t matter quite enough to have ever done a myth check. Better late than never!

And, yes, the headline (“Workout nutrition is a scam”) is a bit hyperbolic and clickbaity. The actual article is very specific — protein timing for bodybuilding — and it’s well written.
