So you’re trying to lose body fat, gain muscle, or work towards some type of body composition goal. You’ve been weighing yourself regularly, hoping for that number to change, and you’re starting to feel frustrated with the lack of progress.

Glutamine is one of twenty amino acids. When the body consumes foods that contain protein (meat, eggs, dairy, beans etc.) it breaks the protein down into basic building blocks called amino acids.

Training and drinking don't go hand-in-hand, it's as simple as that. There may be a dose-dependant effect, but drinking after exercise directly impacts muscle growth, fat loss and repair, setting the stage for disappointing gains, muscle fatigue, poor recovery, weight gain, and possible injury. Find out how you can train and still have a few drinks without sabotaging your goals.

When it comes to combining exercise and make up – they don’t get along. Wearing a full cake face while sweating up a storm can lead to clogged pores and breakouts.
