Our proud podcast partner is Momentous. 

Momentous is my #1 recommended protein that is available on the market today. This protein source is the highest-quality, it tastes amazing, and it's well-tolerated. Don't settle for sub-standard protein supplements. Momentous is simply outstanding. Available in whey or plant-based varieties.

Check out and use the code "RDELLA20" to save $20 off your first order.

I've been using the "Absolute Zero Grass-Fed Whey" blend, pictured below.

I mix Momentous with frozen organic strawberries and a 50/50 blend of unsweetened almond/coconut milk and it is FANTASTIC!

The Momentous Minute with Tim Caron

Today's Momentous Minute is with Tim Caron, the owner of Allegiate Gym and performance engineer at Momentous, the sports nutrition company on a mission to clean up the supplement industry.

Today's question is do we really need to supplement with protein sources like protein powders and why?

Tim Caron:

We wish we lived in a perfect world where the reality is we can get all of our protein needs met by food.

The unfortunate thing is we don't. People are busy, athletes are on the go, if your training goal is always to be in a net positive in regards to your amino acid pool, but it's also really hard to get a full complete meal after your workout.

Now when we're looking at post-workout, a really big benefit in terms of recovery is having bio-availability and actual proteins that digest quickly.

Things like whey protein and plant-based protein, they actually digest quicker and in terms of getting your amino acid pool replenished to be in net positive in terms of overall protein, so you can build muscle. Protein supplements do make a big impact.

If we're really trying to get the maximum out of our training, we need to make sure that we're having the recovery aspect dialed in afterwards. And just having a convenient, useful tool to get that protein need met, that does make it necessary.
