Sorry if this question gets asked a lot, but is there a rough guideline as to how much protein one should consume on an AAS cycle?
I appreciate it might vary depending on the strength of the cycle, but lets just say someone was on a pretty basic cycle (like 500mg of test per week) - how much additional protein would they required to get the most out of their cycle?
Ive heard mixed reviews on the subject: Bill Roberts supposedly recommends 2g per lb upwards, whereas I believe Jason Blaha suggested users don’t actually require a much higher protein intake.
I actually posted this same question on Dr Michael Scallys FB group, and the response was, again, pretty mixed.
Dr Scally linked me to a discussion where the general consensus was that, given the increased level of protein synthesis on cycle, and since theres no real harm to having a higher protein intake, you should just be on the safe side and go higher.
However, Borge Fagerli noted that androgens enable the body to recycle and make better use of amino acids, meaning protein needs may even be lower and not higher on cycle. He also made the point that such a high protein intake would eat into the amount of carbs and fats one could allocate themselves.
To be honest, I came away from the discussion more confused than when I started!
If anyone has any advice or suggestions, I would very much appreciate it!
