  1. best way to build muscle off of what food?


    My weight is 185 looking for the right foods and when to eat them with the supplements I'm taking??


  2. I am taking a fish oil pill too along with a multivitamin, when's the best time to take them?

  3. Take fish oil whenevs I prefer multi bitamins before bed but I don't think there's a big difference. Take them with food as certain vitamins are absorbed better with fats

    Get plenty of meat. Chicken and turkey and fish are my top choices and of course red meat for its creatine value an calories.
    Peanut butter is a staple for me as we'll as oats and bananas.
    Sweet potatoes and brown rice. Basic staples of any good muscle feeding diet.

    Best advice I ever got was, " you wanna weigh 200 lbs you gotta eat like you're 200 lbs"

  4. Thanks man, I'm taking 1mr as my ore workout now along with the creatine189 2 pills before I work out, anything else I could take with this set up for my recovery?

  5. Don't worry too much about supplementation it's a small part of the over all goal.
    How many calories are you eating a day and how much protein?

  6. About 80 grams a day I don't do more then 30 grams on one setting, I eat about 2500 cal a day

  7. You want at least one gram per lb of body weight and you'll def want to up calories. Don't quote me but a rough bulking estimate is 20 cals per lb bodyweight

  8. Yeah I don't need to gain any more weight just getting toned up

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Huge myth that no more than 30-40g of protein can be digested in one sitting. Just FYI. and why only 80g? You need at least 105 more than this.

    Doesn' that depend on the person? Sometimes I have up to around 70g of protein a meal and still see strength gains. Granted that's strength gains not size.

    1g per lb of bodyweight. This number wsnt just pulled out of nowhere, there is research done to suggest that this amount is optimal for adequete functions of protein within the body. Remeber it does more than repair muscle tissue.

    The research I believe actually says 1.6-1.8g per KG of bodyweight.

    Thats nowhere near enoguh protein for someone your size. Protein doesnt make you stronger, so perhaps you can still gain strength on a deficit, but your probably forcing your body to used muscle protein or other protein within the body for hormone transport

    Whoa I'm not the OP lol. I get way more than 70 or 80 grams a day I can assure you lol. I myself get about 215-220 grams a day. I was just saying sometimes I get upwards to 70g per meal.

  14. How do u know this us a myth?? I seen a nurotritonst and told me... So who do u be leave nowadays... I feel like if I ate 100 grams a day id put on to much weight. I'm bit trying to gain anymore weight, I'm at 185lbs

    You won't. Proten won't make you fat, hell fat won't make you fat. Too many calories and carbs will. I didn't really start seeing strength gains until I made sure I was getting atleast 215 grams of protein a day.

  16. Yeah but u need carbs too whole wheat, oatmeal, veggies...

    thats why I said too many not none at all.

  18. If you dont know how many g of protein to eat start with the minimum like 75g and go through an workout. Pay attention to recovery and if it's lagging then up it to 100 and keep doing this till you hit the recovery target of about 2 days. I try to not eat anymore protein than need it. In many cases from trial and error and depending what else I eat with the protein it's usually 1.2g of protein per lb of body weight. So I weight around 250 I eat about 300g to fully recover and grow. But not everyone needs this percentage so start low and increase as need it.

  19. There's a low calorie protein I'm buying soon 106 cal per serving, 86% protein, when's the best time to take all this protein? I take 1mr 20 min before my workouts, and a protein after unless I'm eating a big meal then ill cut out my shake, but every morning ill drink one with some fruit and carbs

  20. What do u mean pay Att to my recovery?? And lagging??

  21. Eat protein every 3 hours or so and immediately after the workout and you GTG

    Do you ever have an off day? Cook all your meals then and put them in tupperware. I usually cook about two days worth of food. Shouldn't take too long too cook a lot of food if you cook in bulk

    Second that, plus you might want to buy a foreman grill, it makes cooking a lot easier and you can cook like 8 burgers on one at a time if you get a big model. Hell I even eat reheated eggs...they taste like **** but it's not too bad lol.

    What qualifications does your nutritionalist have? / when did he or she graduate? Because it is a myth, and I dont get how 100g of protein will make you fat, that doesnt even make sense lol.
