Rather than relying on advertisements from companies who are trying to sell you their product, as a consumer, you have the responsibility to educate yourself. In the world of anti-doping, strict liability applies and athletes are responsible for what is in their systems at the time of a drug test.

No differences existed between the two groups for any body composition measure at baseline. The repeated measures ANOVA revealed a significant group x time interaction for lean body mass (p = ) favoring the high protein group. Specifically, lean body mass increased from ± to ± and from ± to ± 2 in the high and low protein groups, respectively. There were no differences between the groups for BW (HP: Pre = ± , Post = ± , LP: Pre = ± , Post = ± , p = ); FM (HP: Pre = ± , Post = ± , LP: Pre = ± , Post = ± , p = ), or BF% (HP: Pre = ± %, Post = ± %, LP: Pre = ± %, Post = ± %, p = ).
