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.
