    Hi everyone,

    I know there are a lot of questions about weigh protein. I was told to drink it right after every work out. As long as I worked out enough. So whats considered "enough" of a work out to benefit from it and not gain fat. I appreciate any help and thanks!

    If your trying to gain mass I think you should be gaining a little bit of weight in fat, though not much. It's rare for protein to be converted into fat especially if it's on a day where you barely work out at all. If you remember that 25% of each gram of protein gets burned due to digestion you shouldn't worry about it. General rule of thumb is that everyones needs 50 a day, each 2 scoop serving of body fortress whey is 46 grams thats only 174 calories, if your working out you need at least 2000-3000 calories a day to really get anywhere, usually. Also take into account how many calories your muscles burn daily to sustain themselves. I drink two 2 scoop servings a day when I work out with a scoop of creatine and 2 teaspoons of glutamine and 2 one scoop servings on the days I dont. The calories add up but it is whats needed.

    there is nothing rare about protein being converted to fat. excess calories are excess calories be they protein carbohydrate or fat. If you dont need it your body will store calories.

    and a 1000 calorie differential requirement in what you need do you really know how much this equates too.

    Lukah first of all you need to start analysing what you are eating. Use a tool like www.fitday.com to work out exactly how many calories you are eating at the second. That will be your starting point, then look at your activity level google BMR (basal metabollic rate) to work out what you will need. Then from there formulate your training programme.

    Having said that as you are new to this I would reccomend you buying Alwyn Cosgrove New Rules of Lifting its a great systematic training manual and diet that will clearlt set out what you need to do how much you need to eat and where to go from there and will save you years of misadventure

    Good luck

    Is it "weigh" or "whey" protein?

    Babe, it's "whey" so that you "weigh" more.

    You're 5'8". You're 130.


    You need carbs PWO and you need protein, and fats, too, because you're so light.

    Eat until it hurts, then, eat extra.

    Driving your insulin up, usually via fast carbs, while eating fats, is what makes you fat, but, you're not in a spot to worry about getting fat, anyway. You're dreadfully light, and you need to eat, eat, eat.

    Want to know more? Google on insulin management and bodybuilding.

    Bodybuilding.com has a plethora of articles about this.

    To gain, you have to have a caloric surplus, which may mean a bit of fat on the way up, unless you're chemically enhanced which changes many of the rules.

    Eating protein post workout won't help if you aren't getting enough calories and are severely underweight to begin with. You have to "fuel the furnace" (eat, eat, eat).

    In the "golden hour" after workout you need protein, carbs, and fluids, and some fat too. You need to be eating at least five times a day, or even more, depending on how tired of being skinny you are.
