DKM, Old & Gray, Anyone I’m sure this has been answered a thousand times before ..but,… Protein Requirement for growth Brian’s “Eating For Size On this my second cycle. I’m going to pay more attention to my eating habits and try to eat correctly. Diet and me have never been as good as I would like it to be. First when reading Brian’s “Eating For Size “. He states to eat one gram of protein for every pound of body weight. Is this just a maintenance amount or an amount to provide for growth? I assume is for growth. What else could it be? I just like to know for sure . In the calorie formula he increase the caloric intake to complement future growth. However, about the protein he states, “Try to get 1-gram protein per pound of bodyweight”. (The body weight you want to be? Or the weight you are now ?) It seems to me that you would do the same thing with the protein as you did with the calories and increase them above the BMR as well. I’m assuming you must, but I am not sure exactly how much. I’m thinking (I know that’s very dangerous for me but,) instead of 1 gram per pound of body weight maybe 1.2 – 1.5 grams PBW ?. I gain fat real easy so I’m very cautious of my caloric intake. I’ve done bulking cycles in the past, but the collateral fat that I put on that was very hard to get off. Easy to put it on and a hell of a hard time to get it off. Please keep this in mind. Thanks in advance The Idiotic Imbecile who is “Out of it” Doesn’t that have a nice ring to it! I want to thank Baby A and Yshemesh for all their support. Closed Caption for the HST impaired.
