🔥Perfect diet? Let's digest that! 🔥
You can eat all the food you want, but if your body can't assimilate your protein, carbs, or fats, it doesn't do you any good.
That's why when nutritionist Robert Yang has a client who can't gain muscle, he doesn't increase his protein or change his training program. He watches him chew. "It's insane how many guys will eat a huge steak and only take five or six bites before swallowing it," he says. "They eat like my dog. And they've completely screwed their chances of getting all the high-quality protein and fat from the steak." According to Yang, failure to fully digest your meals can lead to poor muscle growth, lack of energy, and even bouts of depression. "You may be eating all the nutrients your body needs, but if your body doesn't have the capability to digest them–whether it's a lack of HCL (hydrocholoric acid) production or other causes–you won't get the benefits eating the nutrients in the first place." So if you want a better body, it's not just what you eat. It's how you eat, too.
