I was able to put together a day with about 1400 calories and 148g protein. I have added a little bit of intensity to most of the meals. I love chobani greek yogurt and edamame the way they are, so I didn't add intensity to them. Also, 1400 calories is probably too low for you, so go ahead and adjust this to reach your calorie goal. Please note, I am not ...

Adding ice to a protein shake could temporarily change the state of certain fats (i.e. from liquid to solid), but this does not change how hard it is to burn off the fat once it's in your body. Firstly, by the time fats get absorbed into the body from the digestive tract, they have likely been heated to body temperature. Secondly, regardless of the state of ...

Too much protein is excreted so there are no health risks in that respect. You will also avoid muscle wasting with a high protein diet, however you're likely to have low energy levels from the lack of carbs so maintaining protein-only for more than one day isn't a good idea. The tryptophan found in protein also needs carbohydrates to be transported, which ...

I will respect your wishes to talk "only about protein", but that is simply a repetition of a lot of the fallacies and myths that have grown up around the ingestion of protein. Protein is simply a macro nutrient, and needs to be consumed in balance with other macronutrients. All of the "rules" you state about no more than 30 grams of protein (Which is only ...

Maybe your calorie reduction is too drastic to support increased activity. Try figuring out how many calories you are consuming, and comparing that number to the calories you need to maintain your weight (you can find tools online to help with this). To lose a pound a week, you would need a deficit of 500 calories a day. If your calorie deficit is too large, ...

This is just broscience... you know: "If you do not take your whey right after training, you are going straight catabolic". Just eat whole foods, train hard, sleep well and take your protein shake, with ice or otherwise, to complement your calorie intake

The idea that there is a certain amount of protein a person can absorb with in a set period of time is false according to this article. In short, the author points out that if it is true that we can only absorb 30g of protein in one sitting, as is widely accepted to be true by many, we would all be excreting the excess amount of food undigested. Since that ...

Mike Mentzer, a former mr Universe (only one with a perfect score), ate around 100 grams of protein daily. He questioned bodybuilding dogma (and was probably the most controversial bodybuilder ever) and reasoned it made no sense to eat a lot of protein because protein wasn't used for energy like carbs and fat are. That means it isn't dependent on your ...

There are few things to say on the matter. 1) You cannot build good muscle if you only do kick-boxing and/or circuit resistance training. If you want to gain muscles you have to two things: weight-lift and eat properly (see 2). 2) The first thing to keep in mind when you want to gain weight is that you need to bring into your body more calories than you ...

High-protein diets only pose a serious health risk if you do not take in enough fat and/or carbohydrates with them. The maximum for a high-protein diet is 60% protein. The human body only requires 0.36g protein per pound of body weight daily, and my understanding is that high-protein diets are usually regarded in the medical community as unnecessary. ...
