Q & A

"If we're not willing to settle for junk living, we certainly shouldn't settle for junk food."

Question - If pairing protein with carbs helps build muscle, will it help weight loss?

Answer - Yes. Although you might think that the carbs will slow weight loss, the opposite can be true. Carbs plus protein helps build muscle (especially if you eat the combo just before and after exercise), and that can indirectly enhance fat loss, because muscle is metabolically active tissue that helps burn more calories around the clock.
