The new pyramid makes specific recommendations for intake of grains, vegetables, fruits, milk, meat and beans as well as exercise recommendations for promoting health and promoting and sustaining weight loss. These dietary recommendations are excellent for peak sexual health.
Matthew Cooke, from Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia, found that creatine monohydrate taken five days before and 17 days after intense eccentric (negative) exercise reduced symptoms of muscle soreness and promoted recovery from exercise-induced muscle damage.
Green tea contains a chemical called EGCG, which promotes fat loss and protects the cells from free radicals produced naturally during metabolism.
Several studies found that L-carnitine L-tartrate promoted recovery and prevented free radical tissue damage in intensely training young men. A sophisticated study from the University of Connecticut, Storrs, led by Bill Kraemer, found similar results in middle-aged men.
Recent studies show that stronger people live longer. Creatine supplements can help older adults maintain strength and muscle mass, which could increase longevity.
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is an effective way to improve fitness rapidly. It is an unpleasant way to train, but it works. Caffeine, creatine monohydrate, and amino acids increase exercise performance and recovery from HIIT.

Creatine supplements (10 grams per day for three weeks) reduced arterial stiffness and blood pressure responses to weight training.]
The amino acids in protein serve as building blocks for muscle proteins and as chemical signalers for turning on protein synthesis after exercise. An ongoing controversy in sports nutrition is the timing of protein intake before or after exercise.
