more than the regular stuff im eating i guess…lets say for e.g. i consume bout 50gm protien a day…is it necessary for me to consume a gram per pound of my weight considering the routine i follow?
and should i use the help of supp to acheive that?
Most people will say you need a gram per lb of bw, per day.
I think that for most people, 2/3 g/lb is usually enough. If you’re hungrier from your training, eat more. Make protein the centerpiece of your meal. Even 6 oz of chicken has 30g of protein.
At your weight, 100+ grams would be a good target to start with. Bump it up if you’re not gaining.
I think a major mistake that a lot of people make is only worrying about eating enough protein, then they go light on the fat. The caloric density of fats is important when trying to put on some muscle.
Aim to eat at least 1.25 lbs of meat per day. Eggs are good too, 5 eggs = 30g.
Good luck and don’t overdo the cardio…do some HIIT, look it up.
