This resource is brought to you by BiPro USA, a proud partner of PCA-Minnesota and a strong advocate in improving the communication and context around proper athlete nutrition. An all-natural whey protein isolate made from milk, BiPro is one of the highest quality proteins available worldwide. It is rich in the amino acid leucine, proven to be the building block of lean muscles, and is trusted by Olympic and Professional Athletes Worldwide.

In this video, biPro USA Vice President Polly Olson explains that people should be eating protein about 2-3 times a day. People tend to follow a typical Western Diet, eating all of their protein in the evening. It is important to balance out your protein intake throughout the day because it helps with muscle synthesis, which lasts 3 hours. It is also important to have protein after a workout to help rebuild muscles and help speed up recovery. Olson recommends adding supplements to breakfast and lunch to help maintain a proper balance of protein, rather then overdosing on protein during dinner.
