Ever wonder what bodybuilders eat to amass all that muscle? Well it’s simple; really, they eat a lot of protein to be more exact they eat roughly 1-2 grams of protein per pound of weight. Meaning, if you weigh 200 lbs. and want to maintain that size, strip fat, and replace with muscle, you should eat 200 grams of protein per day.
So what are the best proteins to eat?
- Whey is a gold-standard among body builders, cheap, effective and highly protonated.
- Casein is a slower digesting protein, perfect to eat before going to bed so you do not wake up hungry.
- Eggs are easy to cook and with a million ways to eat them they never lose their place in a proper diet.
- Meat: steak, chicken, pork; are of course is a great way to fulfill your protein needs day-to-day.
So there you have it, to get big and strong you need to eat more protein.
As with everything we do, practice makes perfect, and at the end of the day we can be So Much More.
