    Just a thought
    It Is All Nitro Tech Right??lol.

    I heard a rumor that he sleeps with an IV in his arms to keep his calorie intake going while he's asleep.

    Well if I eat less than 350g's of protein I don't grow for ****. When I increase my protein I start putting on weight and strength. Thats all the proof I need. I'm sure it is diffrent for everybody and that all don't need 400g's of protein every day. I will say I also have a very high metabolism and have to consume massive amounts of calories anyways.

    Actually, Chris has stated that he eats around 500+ grams a day when he is training seriously.

    Keep in mind that when you're on Androgens, you can benefit from more protein since you have an increase in protein synthesis. I have personally been doing good with the 1 gram per lb. standard and haven't noticed a difference from an extra 100 grams of protein when the calories remain the same.

    Done this, can of tuna and 12 oz of orange juice tossed around in a blender. A bit chunky for someone spoiled though.
    Just thinking of that makes me want to vomit

    Personally I go through 5 lbs of optimum chocolate whey a week and I am growing like a weed. I mix 4 coffee cups full with 1 1/2cup of honey powder and 10 grams creatine, and 1/2 cup of husks (to prevent mud butt ) into a big jug every morning and pound it every 3 hrs.

    I also eat regular food (as clean as I can) but I work like a slave and this guarantees I get at least a good base of fuel throughout the day. My GF says I eat like a robot, same thing every day. Works for me.

    I take my vitamins and minerals also.

    During my m1t cycle which I am 2 weeks into I have upped my protein to 550+ a day and am seeing unreal results. I wake up and have a shake with 80 grams of protein then I have another shake before workout with 100 grams ( because of milk ) then a post workout shake with 80 and 1 before bed with 100....I have changed my opinion on getting most of your protein from shakes because I am seeing great results.

    never had a tuna shake.....dont want to either

    I was getting between 400-500 protein a day at 4600 calories per day on my last natural bulk ending the bulk at a BW of 223, I am cutting now and get around 300+ grams at 3000 calories.

    my next bulk I will be doing transdermals so I might need more after reading this thread......good stuff.

    how long have you done this to change your opinion, I usually eat a ton of cottage cheese before bed to get some protein before sleeping.

    a shake before bed would be quicker and I sometimes get tired of eating on a clean bulk.
