I dont count protein from anxillary sources such as pasta or jizz
While on cycle I make sure I get too much protein as opposed to not enough.
I aim for 1.5 grams of quality protein from meat, eggs, dairy and everything else such as rice, pasta, nut protein is just an extra.
Would it make sense to count protein from my pasta and rice ect or should I stick to getting my complete proteins from the highest quality sources?
No responses from fattys and notbigs please.
I had this same question a while back and was told to count it all, protein is protein.
"MY NAME IS SUE, HOW DO YOU DO? NOW YOU GONNA DIE!!!!!"
As far as I'm concerned, pasta and jizz are incomplete proteins that are lacking in their amino acid profiles so I'll stick to what I'm doing.
I've seen pics of vegetarian bodybuilders and they are a joke. This is proof that quality sources of protein like meats, eggs and dairy are far more superior.
I put everything I eat into fit day, so yes everything is included.
I would not count them OP. Same goes with carbs in vegetables and etc.
But with Fitday you have to include them into your daily food intake.
Are we not in danger of being accused of splitting hairs just to try and prove that I and not the other person is correct.
If you're really set on reaching a specific daily protein goal then count everything, but considering the lesser bioavailability of plant-source protein you could divide grams from non-meat proteins in half and count that in your daily amounts. In the end all absorbed proteins are broken down into amino acids, and even though nearly every plant protein is incomplete in its AA profile, when eaten in combinations plants complement each other in what the other is lacking. In my opinion counting grams of protein is arbitrary for the most part, since that number alone isn't going to tell you whether you're in a positive nitrogen balance (the only thing that really matters) and most people tend to overestimate protein needs anyways. The numbers everyone should really be looking at are total carbs, calories, and omega 9:6:3 ratios, as these are what really influence the state of anabolism.
just get in as much as you possibly can. everything will fall into place
