    Is this 2000-2400 additional calories supposed to come from protein?? What percentage of protein, carbs and fat do you go by in your diet

    If you talk to an actual doctor they will explain to you that taking in high amounts of protein for long periods of time will really screw up your kidneys, like 50% of kidney problems one actual practicing doctor told me he saw had to do with people taking in too much protein, this is especially true for whey protein.

    When you are on gear though your body can take in more protein then when not, so if you're not on gear u may want to do some research about this. Obviously you won't see any damage until you're way older, but I plan on living a good life when I'm older too.

    I take in about 150 - 200 grams a day spread out over five meals. I also add one protein shake in excess of the meals right after I workout, to try to get the fast acting whey in when my muscles need it. I'll do a little research and get back to you on the breakdown.

    Many lifter completely forget that to have your body grow you need fiber, nutrients and vegatables. I focus on protein consumption but I would also recommend you try to increase your healthy food consumption also. Lifting tears down your body, a truly healthy diet, with possibly even lower protein may help your body grow in a better way, with less injuries down the line. Don't forget the vitamins, vegatables, carbs, and fiber to keep your cholestorol down.

    Otherwise you'll be ****ting protein bricks out!

    Tell her to get a degree in health science then come back and explain why you need 300g protien per day. Protien is the building blocks of muscle. Have her try to build a house w/ out lumber.

    my diet consits of

    300g protien 1200 cals

    250g carb 1000 cals

    90g fat 810cals

    I can maintain or cut on this diet depending on cardio. When I bulk multiply this diet by 1.5

    also

    that .8 or whatever is for someone who is sedentary...or not active. it's what the body can get bye on. to build muscle, when you're active, you need more protein. maybe she'll get off your case if you explain it that way.

    Then again, my woman knows that I know what I'm talking about, I walk around the house w/just jean shorts on while BBQ'ing, and she sees that there is no way in hell that she can tell me what's good for me and what's not. I look like walking information. The trophies lacing the house are also a reminder that Daddy knows it all, and you don't know sh*t.

    Really though, then again this IS my career, so there is not much she can tell me, as it's a given that I know what I'm talking about. As well, my woman is all into fitness, and understands the role that protein plays in a diet, and just how important it is.

    lmfao!!!

    i've got a 3ft tall plastic karate trophy that i won when i was about 10yrs old...will that work?

    and i know someone said it, but health science degrees will teach what she heard...that people need 0.8g per kg of bodyweight. it says for very active people the number could be as high as 1.2-1.4g per kg...these #s don't even appraoch the 1g/lb rate that most of us look at...

    but they're going for health and using very basic measures...sports nutritionists and bodybuilders are using research tailored for performance...not just basic health.

    I'd tell her that you know what you are doing and to stay out of it... Why is she telling you what to eat anyways!? If my bf did some research and came back with some thing like this I would tell him that if he wanted to do that for protein then that was his business but what I take in is mine. (Then I would tell him to join the forums over at.... wait, no forum bashing here so I can't say, but some of you will know what I'm thinking )

    I have a degree in Kinesiology & Health Science. That much protein is TOO much IF you're an average joe who doesn't do jack ****. However, if you're a serious or even active person, you need 1g per 1lb of LBM. Serious bodybuilders can jack it up to meet their needs, but for the vast majority of us who'll never compete, model and have trouble getting our abs out...1g per 1lb of LBM is good enough.

    Essplain that your womans man...
