    Helly everybody,

    i got into an argument with one of my male sparring partners a few days ago:

    He told me that i actually would have to reduce my overall protein-glutamine and overall calorie input on the resting day, because i wouldn't need that much energy on my resting day.

    I thought it sounded logical, but i also think it would interrupt my ... i don't know how to say it, my accomodation circles?!


    So my question is, IF he is right, how should i reduce my input on my resting day? And does it have (the resting day) an important role in my dieting routines?

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    sry for any mistakes,

    Ako

    I've also wondered about this. I'm interested to hear what the D&S experts have to say about it.

    You grow out of the gym not in it. Resting days should be not much different than any other day.

    Either way glutamine is pointless

    Agreed, on both points. Other than eliminating a PWO shake, your nutrition should not be any different.

    Hm, okay, so my intuition was kinda right ^.^*

    Ok, so the resting day itself has no big role in my nutrition at all?

    And Glutamine is pointless? I am no expert but it had effects on me as well as with some of my training partners.

    That would be called "The Placebo Effect", and can be quite powerful. Supplement companies have been bottling it for years with great success.

    In all seriousness, glutamine is an expensive alkalizing buffer and insulin secretagoue. Both of those can be achieved through proper nutrition.
