“Excess amino acids in the 17 day diet are converted to urea and excreted in the urine”(c-backbone converted to fat)
“ingesting protein either before or after exercise does not affect hypertrophy”
“muscle protein synthesis takes up to 24 hours (48 for beginners)” direct from nutrition courses she teaches.
I will make one note that things do change somewhat for the super elite athlete like Olympic athletes. For example muscle recovery (creatine phosphate) requires 5 full mins before your muscle has had enough time to replenish between sets we recommend 3 min for non elite. Creatine is what the muscle uses for fuel within the first 10 seconds of exercise.

I do look forward to a full review on the exercises and routines. I dont mean to take the too seriously but there is a lot of misinformation out there and I want to clarify as much as possible. I havent read all the posts here yet, but this should be helpful. Many of the “Named” 17 day diets are just marketing. Losing weight is just pure kcal in<kcal out. It doesnt matter if you excercise to lose the extra calories or just reduce food intake.
Of course the individual that excercises will get additional health benefits. This is proven in a recent study: J Clin Endocrinol metab. 2007 Jan 2; Effect of calorie restriction with or without exercise on body composition and more fat distribution.
I’d recommand eating more fruits and less meat. For one, fruits will give you much more energy as they contain the main ingredient for your body to work: glucose.
Eat apples, oranges, grapes, bananas, watermelon, any fruits. They are rapidly digested and will give you a boost of energy. For proteins, it’s fine to eat some meat but be specific: chicken, tuna, eggs.
If, at the opposite, you want to gain weight even though you feel like you’re eating too much, here’s probably why: when you eat, you taste different things. If your dinner is made of the same thing, it won’t be long before you can’t eat more. The secret is to mix up different textures, odors, tastes, liquid with solid, in order to fill yourself up.
I could eat a bowl of cereal and feel full. Now I eat 2 toasts with bananas on them, 2 scrambled eggs, slices of cheese and a big glass of milk. Learn more at http://healthymomsmagazine.net/2017/04/weight-loss-really-calories.html
The secret to weight loss? Exercise + good food habits with a good diversity. It’s better to eat different things than to eat hamburgers all week long with the 17 day diet
