I just want to thank you for your site and sharing your knowledge on healthy lifestyle. I started following your program 4 weeks ago with starting weight .7 pounds and am now . To be of the weight is not what is pushing me but the INCHES!!! I've lost some serious inches. My only worry now is that I'm top heavy and my hard work of building my butt has gone to waste. I've lost 3inches from my butt and 2" from my hips. I still have work to do on my tummy and I don't know what you can recommend to continue losing the weight as well as gaining on my glutes n hips? The hip thrusts n squats don't seem to work anymore, I don't know if I may be doing something wrong. I will email pics. I still have to say I look way better than I did before. Thanks again!
Plasma and muscle glutamine levels are decreased post workout and it can take hours before they are restored (Rowbottom, 1996). A study examining the effect of free-form glutamine and glutamine peptide ingestion on muscle glycogen resynthesis found that plasma glutamine was decreased by 20% post workout with the ingestion of glucose only (control), showed no change with ingestion of whey protein or wheat protein hydrolysate plus glucose drinks, and a 200% increase with ingestion of free-form glutamine plus glucose drink (VanHall, 2000). Free-form glutamine supplementation was needed to elevate plasma glutamine levels post workout.
