    Don't really need more than a gram per lb of bodyweight for protein.

    Try serious mass by optimum nutrition. It has 1250 calories, 250g carbs, and 50g of protein per serving

    definitely dont need all that protein, at least not to build muscle. Your body actually has a tremendous ability to digest and use protein but not all for muscle building. It will take between 30-35 g from muscle building and everything else will be distributed to your bodies needs. Its literally a myth that you just **** the extra protein out, even if it makes you **** its not the protein thats coming out. ANYway, try eating extremely small meals through the day and post workout eta about 3,000 cals over a 4 hour period split evenly. People in the BB community have lost sight on your bodies hormonal ability to build muscle. Now all you hear is "its all about the macros bro". Thats just stupid. YES fundamentals, like macros are important but it goes far more in-depth then that. Your body produces GH while hunger increases, by eats stuff like raw veggies and low glycemic fruit throughout the day with small portions of protein your body actually utilizes that protein more effiecntly. WHile getting proper nutrients like digestive enzymes and vitamins throughout the day you are also prepping your body for proper digestion. Eating small, and satisfying hunger when needed raises your GH and LH levels before your workout and also preps your body to be more readily available to burn fat during your routine. Eat smal and nutritious throughout the day low carb. nuts, fruits, veggies,and post workout over a 4 hour period KILL the food and healthy carbohydrates along with liquid carbs! There is a TON of bodybuilders who do this. Most people do not take this approach because it requires more discipline. try it for 6-8 weeks, if you dont like it go back to a normal bulk routine which also works well but for lower quality muscle.

    Please take protein recommendations with a grain of salt. Try a gram per pound and realize gains. Then step it up to 1.5-2 and see what you think. Then keep itup and let science catch up. Or read articles by Layne Norton.
