Athletes and bodybuilders around the world dream of increasing their lean muscle mass without adding body fat to their frames. Sadly, the more muscle mass an athlete has, the more difficult this becomes. Athletes frequently turn to whey protein powder and branched-chain amino acids (BCAA's) to help them achieve these goals.

A study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research conducted on adult trained athletes has found that the combination of whey protein powder with casein powder was 10X (yes - 10 times) as effective at increasing LEAN muscle mass gains when compared to whey protein with branched-chain amino acids and L-glutamine.

The results of this study are astonishing, and every athlete that is seriously seeking peak performance should be supplementing regularly. To ensure similar results, male athletes should take 40 grams of the ratio of whey + casein protein used in the study, while female athletes should take about 20 grams of the ratio of whey + casein protein used in the study.

FitBites™ Protein Cheesecakes have 20 grams of protein sourced from whey protein and casein protein sources. To achieve similar lean muscle building results described in the study: men should consume 2 FitBites™ Protein Cheesecakes, and women should consume 1 FitBites™ Protein Cheesecake on training days.
