    Is the tea herbal, because I have GERD, and can can only drink herbal tea. Also, I go to the gym at 5 in the morning, and can’t put too much in my stomach, or it will affect my GERD. I consume my 30 grams of protein 60 to 75 minutes after finishing my workout. Is this ok?

    It’s not as good but on the other hand, a recent study has shown that exercise on an empty stomach can dramatically increase Human growth levels. And that’s a good thing!

    Hey David,
    If you are looking to build muscle I would consume the same 30 grams of protein, but add about 50 grams of carbs and do this within 30 minutes of your workout. Protein is just not enough. I take a supplement called Insu-Pro, but only post-workout.
    Hope this helps!

    Hi Dave, I just noticed that you consumed protein a long time after your workout. You run the risk of your body breaking down muscle for energy. There are some things that you can do to prevent that even with gerd.

    Try an amino acid supplement. It will put off the process of muscle breakdown. Especially one containing LEUCINE. They tend to be easy on the stomach. Bodbybuilding.com has some from ALLMAX that are quick disolve tablets. They are easy on the tummy.

    Have you tried Coconut Butter? It’s a fat that doesn’t stick to you and is quickly used by the body as fuel. It may be a good stop gap after a workout if you can’t stomach anything else. It has a great consistency.

    You need muscle to keep your metabolism going as much as possible. Otherwise the fat burning process slows to a halt.

    I bought a package of Yerba-mate tea after this episode and did a quick search on the web about the benefits of the tea. There are many articles relating it to oral cancer and not much about ‘fat flushing’. Please explain. Thank you!

    I quickly dropped the box of Yerba Mate tea I was looking at in the store and moved on. It has MEGA doses of caffeine in it, and will make you a nervous wreck. Antioxidants are in lots of teas which are considerably safer than this one. Do yourself a favor and pass this one up.

    Anne, I found cassia cinnamon online through Amazon … their contact was via The Prepared Pantry (www.preparedpantry.com) – it’s *very* good!
    As for the caffeine content, I’d suggest a look at the internet – as a rule, the reports I saw (I Googled “yerba mate tea caffeine content”) runs about the same amount of caffeine content as a strong cup of coffee. It appears there’s a difference in caffeine extracted depending on the temperature of the water and the length of time it’s brewed.
    I also noted there are a variety of Yerba Mate teas.

    That said, I haven’t tried it yet, so I’ll be back, and it may be with jittery hands! 🙂

    In grocery stores around me, the cream he’s recommending is called ‘heavy whipping cream.’ Half n’ half is one half cream, one half milk. That milk component would activate the insulin response you don’t want.

    I am from South America and I have drunk mate (a hot infusion made of “Yerba Mate”) for years. I have always wondered if it was good or just ok, but I am glad to read that Dr. Oz considers that it improves health. The only comment I would like to make is that in the photo the infusion is not mate “cocido” as we call it (in a cup) but it looks like tea. Mate “tea” is always green, earthy green. Thank you!
