MYTH: You need to load up on protein after lifting.

TRUTH: Your body can only digest about 12 to 15 grams of protein in a meal. With a good diet, you shouldn’t have to supplement protein unless you’re a serious body builder. Any extra protein will either be excreted or just hang around your waist line as extra calories.
