The Importance of Water Timing in Bodybuilding Nutrition.

By Lee Milligan Jr

 It's interesting to note that the world is 2/3 water and that water is of extreme importance when it comes to our continued survival. The evidence of this fact not withstanding, I have conducted a little research project based on Blair's theory on proper water usage. Blair believed that water should not be taken with your meals and for good reason. Too much water taken with meals disrupts proper protein digestion by interupting the hydrochloric acid in the stomach. The end result being incomplete digestion of protein which inadvertently contributes to gym clearing gas  as Roach once stated. I believe that water should be taken approximately 1 hour or so after meals to give the stomach time to properly break down proteins. The out come from this is more protein utilized by the human body. Blair suggested that 1/2 cup or less is ok if you feel the need to do so. So you see now the importance of proper water timing and by means of which will further propel your bodybuilding and strength training success.

Please remember to always consult with your Doctor before starting any new supplement and training program.
