    People who would like to become physically stronger should start with weight training and add protein to their diets, according to a comprehensive scientific review of research.

    The review finds that eating more protein, well past the amounts currently recommended, can significantly augment the effects of lifting weights, especially for people past the age of 40. But there is an upper limit to the benefits of protein, the review cautions.

    On the other hand, any form of protein is likely to be effective, it concludes, not merely high-protein shakes and supplements. Beef, chicken, yogurt and even protein from peas or quinoa could help us to build larger and stronger muscles.

    It makes intuitive sense that protein in our diets should aid in bulking up muscles in our bodies, since muscles consist mostly of protein. When we lift weights, we stress the muscles and cause minute damage to muscle tissue, which then makes new proteins to heal. But muscles also will readily turn to and slurp up any bonus proteins floating around in the bloodstream.

    Knowing this, bodybuilders have long swallowed large amounts of gloppy, protein-rich shakes after workouts in the expectation of adding greater bulk to their muscles than the lifting alone.

    My friend did GOMAD and he put on a lot of weight he was drinking a gallon of whole milk a day while doing compound lifts

    he had stretch marks all over his shoulder and pectoral near his arm pits area.

    Gross. I know a lot of people do that when they are lifting a lot, especially with starting strength, and it seems to work as far as getting stronger, but that can't be good for you in terms of overall health

    This would be more interesting if TS posted the actual important parts of the article..


    I don't know how legit these studies are but this contradicts a few things often touted by the body building community. Over 1.6g of protein per kg of body weight apparently does nothing, type of protein(full protein source), and protein consumption timing not mattering.

    Interesting..

    Damnit!!! All this time I've been trying to get swole by running marathons, only buying quarts of juice (not gallons) so I don't have to lift anything too heavy, and eating salads!

    Where was this information decades ago?!?!

    Diet and exercise is for the poor. Real ballers can afford to just get a bunch of these

    You mean exercise and lean protein are good for you? I am shocked. SHOCKED I SAY!

    What's next? Vegetables are a great source of vitamins?

    your skin starts getting greasy and some guys start breaking out, I used to drink milk daily and I would get acne all the time after drinking it but its probably cause the milk had hormones.

    I have about two litres of milk every week, a dozen eggs, about one and a quarter kilos of beans and about a half a kilo of beef. My muscles are pathetic, though. I hate exercise.

    44 and I've been doing this for years. My creatine is a 1.0 without supplementing at all. It's just from my high protein, dead animals diet. Unfortunately my cholesterol is also high.

    Funny thing is I’m pretty sure weight lifters were hitting up the protein even before the titanic sunk, so it was old news even then.
