What is a calorie Deficit

A calorie deficit is the key to weight loss! Its the result from burning more calories than you consume from food. This is important for getting lean as your body will have to turn to alternative sources for fuel like fat. However your body can also meet this energy shortfall by using stored energy from muscle protein, which we don’t want!

How much protein do I need to build bigger / maintain muscles

There is a gigantic misunderstanding as to how much protein your body needs to build muscle. You’ll see plenty of places on the internet tell you 1-1.5 grams of protein for every pound of body-weight is the right amount. Which is a fair statement but how much of that protein gets absorbed into the muscle and how much of that protein do you need to build bigger muscles?

Did you know that eating too much protein can raise insulin levels? SPIKING levels of insulin too high at the wrong times can lead to FAT STORAGE in the cells.

It’s purely down to your goals.

  1. If you are overweight you won’t need 1 gram for every pound of body-weight.
  2. If you need to gain weight the rules are completely different. You’ll probably have to eat more protein but there isn’t any proof out there to tell us how much of that protein gets abosrbed into the muscle.
  3. If you’re really underweight you’re going to have to rely on other sources of nutrition such as carbs and fats.
  4. If you do intense exercise you’re going to need a little more.
