There is a very very simple way to really BOOST your growth hormone levels first thing in the morning.
In fact, you are probably doing something similar to this already, but not quite in the right way.
What do you have to do?
Eat protein! So what’s the big deal?
Well according to a 2008 Dutch study , you can increase your growth hormone levels significantly more if you have ONLY protein i.e. no carbs or fat taken with it.
Subjects either had:
- the placebo,
- a meal (carbs, fat, protein)
- or just protein
The researchers then measured the concentration of growth hormone in their blood.
The placebo and meal caused no change in growth hormone levels, but the protein-only group saw GH levels ROCKET after an hour and a half.
In fact, they produced 3 times as much growth hormone in the 5 hour period after breakfast!
So a whey shake first thing in the morning sounds ideal here. If you want to accelerate the digestion time, have it with water instead of milk.
Protein-only foods like tuna or egg whites will do the trick too, albeit at a slower rate.
So get drinking those shakes!
