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 LiveMomentous.com/Rdella and use the code "RDELLA20" to save $20 off your first order.

I've been using the "Absolute Zero Grass-Fed Whey" blend and also the Plant-Based blend, as well.

With Momentous, you have different protein source options and great varieties to choose from.

I typically 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 how much protein can be consumed and utilized by the body at one time and what can alter protein consumption?

Tim Caron:

It depends a lot on your ability to digest proteins and your overall body mass.

More muscle mass usually leads to more overall calories or individual macronutrients, in general, in specific to protein.

So, when we take protein in abundance, this has a high satiety level and satiety means that we're going to get filled really fast.

It's really difficult to determine an exact amount, but typically the bigger you are and the better you digest proteins, the more you can do that, which leads to the quality of the protein.

You don't need as much when you have a higher quality of protein relative to eating a lower quality of protein mixed with some other things that might affect your actual satiety levels - like high sugar, maybe really processed foods, savory, salty foods.

Getting higher quality protein, in conjunction with higher quality foods, helps your ability to digest and assimilate proteins at a higher level.

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 when does it make sense to use a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) product? What does the research say about this?

Tim Caron:

BCAA's, in regards to what's actually in them, is a combination of leucine, isoleucine, and valine.

Reasons why we want to have those three individually is largely due to getting leucine in our body.

Leucine's an amino acid that's used during training, but it also stimulates the protein synthesis pathways.

Now, in terms of what research is saying, a lot of it's actually leaning towards more essential amino acids and having amino acids that your body's not capable of producing kind of covers a lot more bases.

If we're looking at getting our leucine levels to stimulate one energy production during training, as well as protein synthesis, having a lot more coverage in terms of all the essential amino acids is definitely where research is leaning towards and showing more promise.

BCAA's still hold weight and can still be effective, just more research is leaning towards using essential amino acids.

(#283) In this week's episode, I'll share the story about the fitness workshop that literally changed my life.

By making a simple decision to sign up for a one-day kettlebell training workshop, little did I know that it would change my life and lead me down an entirely new path over the last 10 years.

This one experience was the "big domino" that changed everything.

I'll tell you the story and the 5 major lessons I look away from that experience.

And, my hope is that you come away from this episode knowing what your next step is.

Here's a few things you'll hear about this week:

  • Why a "live" training event can be transformational for you
  • My major "aha" moments during the workshop experience
  • What shocked me the most about attending this event
  • How that experience started the "domino effect" for the last 10 years
  • The most valuable lesson I learned about myself after it was over...

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.

Now, we've talked about the NSF certification before and the question today is when it comes to supplements, when do we need to look at with this certification (the NSF certification)?

Tim Caron:

If you're an athlete you should always be conscientious of what you're putting in your body.

If you're someone who's competing you should always have a high standard in what you put in your body.

In general, if you're investing in supplements you should always have the highest possible standard of what you're putting in your body, that makes a huge difference.

And, when you're really evaluating your process of training and nutrition and supplements opting for the highest quality caliber of things to do and having a third party (NSF is the most widely respected independent certification organization today) that that actually can comes in and help you make that decision.

It makes that process just a little bit easier, as well as a little clearer, on what you need to do.

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.

Tim, today's question is what's most important to look for in protein supplements and how do we sort through so many different options that are available today?

Tim Caron:

Ingredient list. Look at the back of the label and actually seeing what's in there. Can you pronounce the ingredients? Do they look familiar? Are these things that you feel like something that wouldn't be hazardous to your body?

I think there's a lot of intuition that should be used when you're looking at any supplements. The quality of the ingredients matters and as we dissect each one of these proteins, they have to have these products that have a shelf life and also have some sort of ability to break down and taste good when you're mixing it.

So, looking at the back of the label and making sure it's grass-fed, making sure it's organic, making sure you can enunciate each one of those names makes a big difference in terms of how your body's going to react to that.

Looking at the nutrition label should be paramount in most people's process of evaluating everything. Make that your first and foremost priority and you should be okay.
