High protein intake is the second most important element of a positive change in your body, both during a phase of fat loss and during a growth phase. (The first, of course, is the calorie intake.)
- In a muscle building phase a larger percentage of what you gain will be muscle (instead of fat) if you eat more protein.
- During a phase of fat loss by consuming a larger amount of protein, you can sustain or even gain muscle, meaning that most of the weight you lose comes from fat.
Natural Lifters and Protein
They are natural, it's not just about getting as much protein as you can. They have a limited capacity to add muscle mass. The addition of too much protein is therefore not of much use and could even reduce the anabolic effect of protein through increased deamination and increased conversion of amino acids to glucose.
Drug users do not really have this problem Anabolic steroids increase protein synthesis around the clock, so they can use a lot more protein to build muscle. That's why pro bodybuilders sometimes consume more than 400 grams of protein.
- In a Mass Phase in which protein intake abuts at 1
- In a fat loss phase you can actually reach 1.25 to 1.5 grams per pound of body weight.
Taking more protein during a diet is a good approach It will likely reduce muscle breakdown and help maintain a stable blood sugar level, thereby reducing cortisol production.
