When is the best time of the day to consume protein to build muscle mass?
(Is there a best time?) I’m lifting weights almost every day with the aim of bulking up. As a diabetic, I spend so much time thinking about carbohydrates that I never really learned the rules for metabolizing protein.
How does it affect muscle recovery/growth if you consume your daily protein total all at one meal? Is it best to load up on protein directly after a workout even if this means that you consume less at other meals, or is it best to keep it evenly paced throughout the day?
Thank you in advance.
