If I want to gain muscle mass, can I just eat a ton of protein (200g +) Or do I need to eat huge meals as well
I’ve been working out for about 5 months, seeing good results. Lately I’ve been eating A LOT, because I had heard that’s good if you want to gain muscle mass. But I’m also getting over 200 grams of protein just from whey protein. So is it really necessary for me to eat huge meals, when I’m already getting tons of protein and calories from whey? Or should I be focussing more on eating more lean, low carb high protein meals.. for example, meats, fruits and vegetables.
A lot of that protein will be used as an energy source if that’s basically all you eat. You need complex carbs in your system. If you do that, carbs will therefore be used as energy, leaving the protein alone so it can fix and repair your muscle. I’d say tone it down on the whey shakes and get some of your protein from nuts, seeds, and lean meats.
Keep eating a lot, but make sure you are getting in 400+ carbs.
If i eat like this everyday will i gain any muscle mass?
Is this diet enough to gain mass?
6 hard boiled eggs
oatmeal with almonds
2 glasses of milk
1 top sirloin
weight gainer shake
black eyed peas
meal 6 weight gainer shake
should i add another meal or protein shakes in between meals
That looks like a pretty genuine body building diet to me
Is this a good meal to gain lean muscle mass?
Im 14 years old and im trying to gain 10 pounds of lean muscle mass. Im goi to have lunch and its my 4 meal. M goin to have lentils, white rice, mash potatoes, grilled chicken, n a big salad its this a good meal or is it to many carbs. Btw ive been trying to gain 10 pounds for 2 months n i just cant, n after my meal ill be goin to soccer practice 3 hours after my lunch
Since this is the V & V section, the appropriate answer is no, a meal containing animals is not a good meal. The lentils will provide quality protein. Eat whole foods such as fruit, vegetables especially leafy greens, 5 different color vegetables, whole grains (brown rice, oatmeal), legumes (beans, peas, lentils), nuts and seeds. Also since you want to gain, include avocados, dark chocolate, dried fruit, nut butters, whole grain pastas, and breads.

SEVEN REASONS TO EAT MORE SATURATED FAT -
1) Improved cardiovascular risk factors
Saturated fat in the diet reduces the levels of lipoprotein (a) abbreviated Lp(a)—that correlates strongly with risk for heart disease. The only dietary means of lowering Lp(a) is eating saturated fat. Eating fats raises the level of HDL, the so-called good cholesterol.
2) Stronger bones
Saturated fat is required for calcium to be incorporated into bone – According to expert in human health, Mary Enig, Ph.D., as much as 50 percent of the fats in the diet should be saturated fats.
3) Improved liver health
Studies show that saturated fat encourages the liver cells to dump fat content. Saturated fat has been shown to protect the liver from the toxic insults of alcohol & medications and even to reverse the damage.
4) Healthy lungs
For proper function, the airspaces of the lungs have to be coated with a thin layer of lung surfactant. The fat content of lung surfactant is 100 percent saturated fatty acids. Replacement of these critical fats by other types of fat makes faulty surfactant & potentially causes breathing difficulties, collapse of the airspaces & respiratory distress.
5) Healthy brain
Your brain is mainly made of fat & cholesterol. Though highly unsaturated essential fatty acids found in cold-water fish (EPA & DHA) are important for brain & nerve function, most of the fatty acids in the brain are actually saturated. The brain needs saturated fats to function optimally.
6) Proper nerve signaling
Certain saturated fats, found in butter, lard, coconut oil, & palm oil, function directly as signaling messengers that influence the metabolism. Without the correct signals to tell the organs & glands what to do, the job gets done improperly.
7) Strong immune system
Saturated fats found in butter & coconut oil (myristic acid & lauric acid) play key roles in immune health. Loss of sufficient saturated fatty acids in the white blood cells hampers their ability to recognize & destroy foreign invaders, such as viruses, bacteria, & fungi. Myristic & lauric acid have potent germ-killing ability. We need dietary replenishment of them to keep the immune system vigilant against the development of cancerous cells & infectious invaders.
FINALLY they admit – no difference in the risk of heart disease even with highest intake of saturated fat & eggs are a superfood & have no effect on cholesterol
Eggs ‘should be considered a superfood’ say scientists
Nutrition scientists have found that eggs are one of the most nutrient-dense foods available and are recommending that we eat at least one egg a day to get the optimum benefits.
