How Much Protein Do You Really Need For Muscle Growth?
So my question is this, how much protein do you really need to gain muscle mass? There are claims thsat if you get enough calories you can eat a lot less protein, and then the 1 gram per 1 lean pound of body weight. It is hard to discern how much we really need. I was curious if anyone knew the ideal protein consumption while following the bulletproof diet. I know the macro breakdown says something like 70% fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbs, but is that an all encompassing amount, or just for maintenance? Is there a certain amount of protein you can get, and then after that just worry about eating a lot more bulletproof fats as far as muscle gains, i have trouble eating enough to get as much as I need (or think I need)?? I have noticed that I have seemingly gained more muscle from just eating more in general (mostly meats and compounded fat and protein meals) than I did getting all of my protein in, but didn't know which I should focus on more.The thing is I have problem either eating enough protein, or eating enough calories, my stomach never seems to hold much food. I hope this was somewhat clear lol and thanks in advance for any suggestions/advice
