Dr Darden, when reading up information about protein intake I sometimes find very high recommended amounts. In other occasions I’ve read that you really don’t need such high amounts of protein. In my personal case I’ve been able to gain muscle throughout my life by just eating regular food & not even minding my protein intake.
In your book Mens Health Killing Fat I remember you talking about the subject. However, I have the audio version of your book and haven’t been able to find it. Can you tell us what amount is really needed? Like a calculation similar to the standard 1 gram per lb or what not?
Also, what are your thoughts on BCAA’s for muscle growth?
Thanks for the help.
