    Im a big Vic fan, but this..

    "You have to remember that your body needs energy and a blood supply in your stomach to digest anything. And when you train, you want that energy and that blood supply to go to the muscle you’re working. If you’re drinking shakes loaded up with protein and carb powders, now your body has to basically divide its resources between digesting those and fueling the muscular contractions and your pump."

    John Meadows has already adressed this before.

    Exactly. Most nutrients used are broken down and need little to no digestion and have very fast transit. Blood will not be sitting and digesting, but shuttling nutrients and enhancing the workout and recovery. He states you want blood delivering "energy" (oxygen). What fuels muscular contraction above anaerobic thresshold? Glucose. Intraworkout shakes are proving themselves continuously and without fail when done properly. He also wouldnt need to worry about being hungry mid workout with these.

    Victor is wrong

    Pasta is a heavy and slow transit carb source. I personally do not employ pasta close to workouts for this reason. You want full muscles and an empty stomach pre and a quick and efficient source post. He likes to employ a slow carb source, but then goes on to suggest faster digesting protein sources post are important at this same point. smh


    Remember people..... some people are the genetic elite. Most things will work for them. The rest of us dont have that convenience. Their physiques does not make them an educated authority.

    Wheat pasta has zero micronutrients and also has bunch of gluten = horrible for intestine... I like buckwheat or millet.

    If you are going to make a statement you should in some way substantiate it.
