A Simple Way To Keep Your Muscles Strong As You Age (Not excercise)




It’s normal for our muscles to lose tone and become a bit flabby as
 we age. But just because it’s normal, it doesn’t mean it’s good.
Not only are flabby muscles unsightly, they’re also a sign that we’re
 losing muscle mass and strength.
Losing muscle mass makes it harder to do the things you take for 
granted. Like walking up stairs. Lifting a bag of groceries. Or
 recovering your balance instead of falling.
Losing strength also makes you more prone to injuries that can 
keep you from enjoying the activities you've loved for years. It's a 
major reason people lose mobility and end up in nursing homes.
We all want to stay strong and vital for as long as possible. So many
 of us turn to exercise. While a regular exercise program can help,
 it’s often not enough. We need to feed our muscles, too.
What's the best food for muscles? Protein. Your body craves protein
 for building muscles and for healing faster after a workout or an
 injury. Protein is a vital "building block" for enzymes, hormones,
 bones, skin, cartilage and blood, too. The problem is, as we get 
older, it's hard to get enough protein. We tend to eat less protein.
 And the protein we do eat is not digested as well as when we were
younger. Poor digestion means poor absorption. So you may think 
you're eating plenty of protein but you're still not getting enough
into your muscles and tissues.

The Best Way to Get More Protein Into Your Diet
When it comes to keeping your muscles strong, you need a well-
absorbed complete protein with all the necessary fats and amino
 acids. The top two sources are eggs and dairy. Of these, one protein
 stands out.
Ounce for ounce, whey protein from milk is the best muscle-building,
fat-burning nutrient on the planet. That's because it has the highest
 amount of protein for the fewest number of calories.
It contains all the amino acids your body needs, including the ones
 you have to get from your diet. Plus it's easier to digest than beef
 or egg protein. So whey protein is absorbed faster into your blood
stream, where it can quickly help you build muscles and repair tissues.
But not all whey protein is created equal. Many whey products today
 are nutritionally deficient and over-processed. What's more, many 
come from cows that have been fed growth hormones and antibiotics
 and all sorts of stuff you don't want in your body.

The Lazarus Cure

One day my friend Jake hopped onto his bicycle and, like he had done many times before, my good friend and "weekend warrior" entered himself into a long-distance racing event. 

The event was to last seven days. But Jake never made it to the end of the first day. 

He suffered a massive heart attack and died before reaching the hospital. 

He was 63 years of age. 

When I heard the news I was as shocked as anyone. 

I am no stranger to death, but when someone with vitality is suddenly snatched away like this it is a sombre reminder that no-one is immune to the laws of biology, and that we take our fate in our hands every single day that we take our health for granted.

I do not know what killed Jake that day. Many factors might have contributed. Stress, diet, high blood pressure coupled with poor medical intervention, or none at all... Who knows? But I can say two things with some degree of certainty. 

The first is that despite the apparent "out of the blue" nature of his death…
