The question was do you need more protein?
I would say no. You are getting at least 1g/lbs bw. You are seeing results. What are you worried about.
It would be worth it to take a look at your kcal intake. After all, protein is the material to build the muscle. Your body also needs energy to complete the process efficiently.
I personally believe what others are telling you about training is correct, but that is for you to decide on your own. [/quote]
personally… I am tired of spinning my wheels for the last three years getting nowhere. I’m 29 now and there are guys ten years younger who are years ahead of me, so there’s another ten years I wasted and can never get back. the thought that I could’ve been at my current state of development or better ten years ago pisses me off. the thought of possibly screwing up my development again for any period of time drives me CRAZY. it’s one of my major motivating factors. hence the nitpicking.[/quote]
Well gee, you fix the big issues before worrying about the little ones. You wasted a whole fucking decade…and your plan is to eat in a restrictive way to gain muscle at almost 30?
Good luck with that.
You would think the major issue is making sure you are first eating enough calories to gain anything at all.
Your exact protein intake is secondary to this.
It is also less important if eating enough carbs and fat and overall calories.
