So when is started working out I was consuming about 4000 to 6000 calories a day and getting almost 2 grams of protein per lb of weight. The results where amazing:
Huge increase in weight and strength exploded. Unfortunately I started to get fat fast and my waist was getting to almost 36 inches. (Note I have a small waist) About 28% bodyfat
So then after getting back to about 15% later on and more research under my belt I tried building muscle whilst cutting fat at the same time. Calories between 2000 and 2500 and protein about .4-.6 per lb of weight the results.
Steady increase in strength and slight loss in fat. Which now IMO I believe that most protein recommendations are over hyped.
Now due to choice in diet and food available I am unable to get more than .3g of protein per lb even though the calories I am having are roughly the same. The results
almost every time I'm working out I'm lifting less and less weight despite trying even harder which makes me believe that for working out, bodybuilding protein is about.....
.5 to 1 gram per lb of bodyweight any less and you won't see any gains and any more is just going to waste. ( Please feel free to argue this if you want)
I am currently losing muscle now so any tips on foods with protein that are not dairy or meat ?
