best way to build muscle off of what food?

I heard a client of mine tell me her RD friend said women only need 60g protein a day to build muscle. I said her friend needs her license revoked. Take that for what it's worth.By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

By lagging what I meant if the recovery is longer than 72 hours.

Great advice all around on here about preparing the food!
I've been preperaing my food in bulk one or two days a week for over 10 years. It works, actually is the only way to make strides in the gym besides having your own cook or have a lot of money to get the stuff made by someone else to your specifications.

other than that if you want your body to look great youll have to put in great effort obviously. now that being said not everyone wants to look like the hulk. so if youre looking to just get the diet down easiest way is to start with simple substitutions and gradually work into a better diet.
cut down on alcohol smoking etc. , choose subway over taco bell, water over juice, salt free items over salt, whole wheat pretzels over chips (although pringles makes a 0 fat chip which i do love) , etc.
I used to smoke everyday almost, and binge drink like it was my job, i slowly but surely worked my way into bodybuilding and I honestly dont even like drinking any more and my diet has seen a complete turn around. these things take time so dont feel like you have to rush it.

How much protein carbs, fruit veggies do I need on a days intake? 185lb guy, happy with the weight I'm at

About 1g/lbs body weight. So keep it around 170-190. Going on what crispy said before: eat the protein you want to weigh. If you wanna be 250lbs, eat 250g protein.

Eat around your BMR on non workout days (plenty of calculators online) and add calories on lift/cardio days. Depending on how hard you go 200-500 should do it

The best way to build muscle is to eat right and workout consistently. You should eat a variety of different types of foods and make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids. Brown rice is a great complex carb to eat also quinoa is a great food for those that are looking to eat clean. You can cook it many different types of ways also. When it comes to protein make sure you are eating chicken and fish. If you are looking for extra cals add whole wheat pasta or bread to your meals. I think you should also be drinking a mass building protein shake. Muscle Gauge Nutrition makes a great product. Be sure to check it out on their website.
