Micel 100% micellar casein is the best tasting micellar casein protein available, incredibly rich in building blocks for muscle growth, delicate for the intestines, low-fat and very low in lactose, a low-calorie drink that is yet very satiating, which makes it an ideal choice for a fat loss diet.
Micel 100% micellar casein is a fine slow digestable muscle protein sparing product, inexpensive but without a compromise to quality and taste. Contains more than enough branched amino acids, glutamine and lysine to promote muscle repair and growth while losing fat at the same time. Slow digestion means that adequate amounts of essential amino acids are being released to the bloodstream making it the ideal protein to (re)build muscle and losing fat at the same time. Micel is The #1 protein for the younger power athlete. Younger athletes need protein that digest slowly which in term slows down muscle protein breakdown as young adults and their catabolic enzymes tend to eat their way into muscle partly due to their higher requirements for calories from protein, carbs and fats than in older athletes.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Artificial or natural sweeteners: which one is the best choice?
For several decadese, there's a disturbing trend in which the majority of the population has gained weight as a result of overeating and/or underexercising.
Most experts agree on how a big part of the over consumption is caused by ever larger portion sizes of junkfood. Junkfood is very cheap to make, as it can be stored for such a long period of time and lacks in the most expensive macro nutrient: protein. It also has virtually zero micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals and most of all, the precious antioxidants we derive from vegetables and fruits.
An ongoing discussion is how to stimulate lower calorie intake as well as making exercise more attractive.
Do we guide the general public by offering colour codes, in which green colour signifies the 'right' choice and a red colour the 'wrong' one, whatever the guidance may be. Don't get me started either on fake margarine being promoted and real butter and coconut oil being damned as 'evil saturated fats'.
Or do we punish the industry by banning over-sized junkfood? It isn't even so long ago when the standard sized bottle of lemonade was 'only' 1 litre or less! Now 2 litres is quickly becoming the norm.
A few weeks ago the Dutch government published her decision to stimulate the choice for lower- and zero calorie drinks by lowering the taxation on mineral water as well as that of artificially sweetened soft drinks.
In the light of the upcoming 50% increase of taxation on all foods from 6% to 9% as of January 1, 2019, the majority of people was outraged!
How is it possible outright beneficial health foods such as vegetables and fruits aren't subsidized and get 0% taxation?
A lot of people stipulated how artificial sweeteners are not good for your health, while others reassuringly sussed these complaints, stating that e.g. aspartame has been researched for decades and barely any negative side-effects have been reported.
Hence why we are on a quest to find out more about low-glycemic low-caloric sweeteners. Are they good substitutes for real sugar?
Can you be addicted to cheese?
A few days ago, a friend challenged me to go vegan for a day! While I've been a lax vegetarian (lax as in sometimes eating fish) for well over 15 years, I've never ever gone further and banned all animal-derived products from my diet. The most obvious ones being dairy and honey.
Of the two, giving up honey makes the most sense, knowing how much work these hard working bees that are in fact, even an endangered species put into making honey. Given how important these adorable little insects are for nearly every plant species that needs pollination, it makes sense to think about building a so-called 'bee hotel' for them when you happen to have a lot of flowers and trees in your garden and aren't afraid of bees.
By chance, this weekend will be devoted to the first 'National Bee counting Day' on which Dutch citizens aree encouraged to count the amount of bees in your garden and if possible, specify which of the 100+ species it may be.
My response to giving up dairy was a lot more visceral! It was more like "you will need to pry it out of my cold dead fingers!"
With 'it' I am referring to most dairy products, with cheese, yoghurt and ice cream as the main comfort foods.
But is addiction to cheese a real thing? Or bread for that matter?
The unofficial history of sports supplements in the USA - Part IIIn Part I of this series, we traced the development of how supplements were designed and marketed. Since their very conception, supplements have always provided a pseudo panacea for virtually every health-related problem. Fatigue, slow muscle growth, even impotence can supposedly be cured with natural substances attempting to simulate the effects of drugs through "natural" pathways. Although it's true that various nutrients and herbal compounds have been proven to be quite effective, there was a period circa the early 1990s when the distinction between "natural" and "chemical" became blurred.
Why should I care about meal frequency?Why should I care about eating several times a day? A straight answer is, because it works!
It works if you wish to burn fat and maintain a good muscular attractive physique when you are over 40. Back in 2009 I was pretty darn fit and strong and in the best shape of my life while eating small meals five to six times a day and working out right after work around 7pm.
