    I workout to try to get more muscular. but someone told me that eating certain foods or after a certain time makes you lose muscles or doesn’t let you make gains. Can someone just tell me what to eat to avoid this happening to me after working out so hard at the gym?

    Hi,

    I’m Patricia – Nutritionist at LFLC.

    I understand how confusing some of the information is online.

    If you are looking to lose fat – stick to a high protein, low carb diet.    You also want to ensure that you are eating a protein/carb snack or meal within 30-60 mins of working out.  Protein shakes are a great choice as your body will quickly absorb their nutrition.

    You will not lose muscle if you are eating regularly and eating quality proteins.

    You may, however, want to purchase a body composition scale that measures body fat and lean muscle percentage.  This will give you confidence that you are on the right path.

    Hope this helps!

    Patricia
