    diet question

    right now due to my very busy life, school, work..etc its hard to consume 180-200g of protein daily. if i eat lets say, 100-140g a day will i still build muscle?

    some people respond differently with varied protein intake. If you can, try to up the carbs so u preserve the decreased protein intake.

    You should be aiming at more like 260+g. of protein per day...(If you weight 174lbs as your profile says)...

    At 100-140g per day, your ability to 'maintain' has decreased, let alone your propensity to add LBM....

    Try bringing pouches of tuna, and whey in a Ziploc bag.... just shake one up when you need to.

    Why is it hard? If you can eat 100-140 a day, simply ADD more to those meals.

    You're way under the neccessary amount.

    i actually bring mixed nuts and tuna to work/school for lunch and snacks. i know swole i just need to UP my intake but right now i dont have money to buy protein supps so i get all of my protein from foods. i forgot to mention im cutting right now so would i still need to take well over 200g?

    In order to maintain mucle mass, I'd still suggest roughly 1.5+g/LB..
