  1. Maggie,

    What does l-glutamine do again? Should it be used as a daily supplement, or only on the heavy workout days?

    Thanks,
    RB

  2. L-Glutamine aids in the muscle recovery process. Also, if you are a “carbo-haulic”, chances are you’re hooked on sugar. Too much sugar = stored fat, which is what you don’t want. The good news about L-Glutamine is that when you take it, your body thinks it’s sugar (but w/o the fat stroage) – therefore, when you have a sugar craving, take a serving or 2 of L-Glutamine instead. Obviously, you want to eliminate the craving for sugar all together, so try to go as long as you can before taking the glutamine. That way you will eventually only take it for muscle recovery and not for a sugar substitute. Oh, one more thing… don’t put it in coffee… only your body thinks it’s sugar not your taste buds!!
