something i found on a “test your food IQ” on canadianliving.com link from MSN

"9. To build muscles, increase your intake of:
a. Protein-rich foods, such as steak and eggs
b. Carbohydrate-rich foods, such as pasta and bread

Answer:
b. Building muscles requires a combination of food and exercise. It takes physical exercise to build muscles, and carbohydrate-rich foods are important to meet the increased energy needs of your muscle-building regimen. Although athletes and those who work out regularly need slightly more protein in their diets for extra muscle development and maintenance, this is easily achieved by eating a balanced diet."

i will guess that according to them 50 grams is “enough” protein for building noticable muscle mass

and we wonder why we’re a nation of fatasses, eat more bread and pasta lol

That, and NO-XPLODE. Maybe some Creatine too. Use it with wool socks. Poly-cotton blends don’t allow for optimal absorption.
