Just discovered this site, great content that will keep me busy for weeks, but I wanted to throw out a few quick diet questions. I’ve been slowly getting into a workout routine, but my diet has been lagging, I’ve been eating far less than I should, so it’s time to get serious. I’m a pretty skinny guy, about 175 at 6’1." But hell, I weighed about 140 6 years ago (I’m 24 now). Anyhow, a few things I’m particularly wondering about.
What’s the maximum amount of protein that should be consumed in one serving?
Is there any harm (or am I missing anything important) if I try to get most of my protein/carbs via a shake, using whey powder and something like carbo gain? Hard for me to find the time to cook, so I’d prefer to use shakes as much as possible.
I’m figuring I should start out with about 3000 calories a day, sound about right?
Much thanks for the wisdom and advice on this board, I’m sure these questions have been asked before, so feel free to point me to articles or other posts, or tell me I’m being lazy.
