I am a sports Nutrition coach, Plz consider this. I think too much emphasis is placed on speeding up metabolism with frequent meals, The main point is to support protein synthesis. in the absence of adequate dietary carbohydrates and fat calories, the body will break down not only dietary protein but protein in the blood, liver, pancreas, muscles, and other tissues in order to maintain vital organs and functions. In order for protein synthesis to occur, an adequate supply of both essential and non-essential amino acids is vital. If one of the essential amino acids is missing then synthesis is halted. ANY AMINO ACIDS THAT ARE NOT USED within a short time CANNOT be stored for future use. So frequent supply of protein is the reason for frequent small meals.


Artificial sweeteners found in diet sodas have been found to increase sugar cravings because it’s not a natural source of sugar and the brain continues to seek the real deal. This can lead to increased eating and drinking because your body isn’t satisfied. One study from 2002 found that diets too high in refined sugar, such as that found in soda, could reduce the production of a chemical known as brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and compromises an individual’s learning and memory formation. A more recent study from 2012 linked the consumption of just one can of regular soda a day to a 20 percent increase in heart attack risk, when compared to those who drank no soda. Drinking soda has even been linked to an increased chance of developing asthma and/or COPD. during intense exercise CO2 buildup may occur and you do NOT want to add additional CO2 gas from carbonated drinks. Most of these drinks have Caffeine Brother . At high doses (more than 15 mg/kg body weight), caffeine can produce slowed heart rate, hypertension, nervousness, irritability, insomnia, and gastrointestinal distress. Skip it man :)
