Your daily protein requirements are pretty high and an average man needs around 150g of protein, if calculated as per dietary chart calculation of 1g per pound of body weight. This is too much and how many meals you eat in a day. Usually 5 meals per day you might be eating which means that an average 30g protein should be included in every meal and it is not possible that every meal can have same protein-rich diet. And if you’re an overweight, you will reduce your serving size which means relative reduction in the protein content. If you’re doing workouts, you’ll need more protein to repair worn out muscles. So, confusion every time and you fail to understand the right recourse.
How can you compensate?
Should you need to cease workouts? Should you eat more? Should you eat only proteins? The answer to all the above three questions is “no” because all three alternatives won’t work and will contradict your fitness plan. Ceasing workouts will cease your muscle growth and if you eat more, you can get more fat deposited in your body. And it’s not possible to have a meal which contains protein alone because other components such as little carb, vitamin and minerals are also essential for your body. The best recourse is to introduce supplements for working out in addition to your meals, especially the supplements that contain type of proteins that promote muscle growth.
How supplements support in workouts?
You need pre- and post- workout supplements because carbs, protein and other important nutrients are essential for energy boosting before workouts so that you can do harder workouts. The energy is depleted during workouts and supplements help to restore depleted energy level instantly in post-workout condition. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a type of energy that is used in muscle contraction and creatine can restore it. Whey protein builds and maintains muscle mass. This is the best way to build your muscle while you proceed with your workouts.
