    Do I need a lot of proteins in the days that I don´t go to the gym? Days OFF.






    Do I need a lot of proteins in the days that I don´t train?
    I am eating 250 g of protein everyday, It should be a good news if I don´t need this much of protein in DAYS OFF, like sunday.

    Eat pork or Fish or Lean beef. I try to eat like 400 grams of protein a day. I usually only hit 340 or 350. Unless you weigh 150 I think you need more. Hint: One can of tuna has 32.5 grams of protein in it. So 10 cans a day is easy to achieve with tuna I think. I eat 2 cans five times a day.

    Impossible

    Impossible to eat that much of tuna, there is no way.

    They really should do a injection, some liquid protein to just put in the blood. Good idea, don´t you think ?

    Damn thats a lot of tuna... Albacore is $$$ too!

    Try cottage cheese, I believe there is around 25grams of protein in 1 cup. Buy from costco in the BIG tub. This is an easy way to get a few extra grams daily.

    I think you guys need to wait for a reply from one of the regulars here before you go out and spend twenty dollars a day on 400 grams of protein. That much protein has to have you shitting out massive pellets.

    And guys, there are PROTEIN DRINKS :|

    If this was directed at me any way, I was just saying that you can get a little extra from cottage cheese. I in NO WAY meant to go and eat 5,6,7,8 cups a day... Also 400grams of protein a day isnt bad at all, if you are on a good diet. 1/4 cup of ground flax seed has as much fiber as 80lbs of broccoli! So just grind the seed in a coffee grinder and add 1/8th cup to your protein twice daily. That should clean you out.

    Ground Turkey
    White Fish
    Shell Fish
    Salmon/Shark/Swordfish
    Canned Tuna
    Canned Salmon
    Canned Chicken

    Positive nitrogen retention (keeping aminos inside your muscles instead of letting them go) means eating protein around the clock. If you dont, then you will lose muscle, any day of the week.

    1 TBSP of mayo and some mustard! LoL Or 1 TBSP mayo and some sweet pickles.

    Just wash it down with a ton of water, and remember this saying:

    Oh man personally I enjoy eating tuna more than I do eating eggs. Plus one can of tuna has the protein of about +-9 egg whites. But 10 cans of tuna a day, that’s way too many IMO. He is saying he gets about 345g of protein a day. 10 cans of tuna is about 325g of protein, you need to have some variety man. Sounds like his diet is made up of just tuna.

    My favorite way to eat tuna is with barbecue sauce. I dump the tuna into a container, add Montgomery Inn sauce, heat, and eat. I can almost taste it now.....yum.

    tuna is great

    if i ate chicken instead it would cost pretty much double what tuna would

    its affordable and its quick... just crack open a can and eat it! (make sure u drink plenty of water to wash it down)

    i eat a can a day ATM, might up it to 2 cans soon

    peace

    I used to use fat free miracle whip, chopped onions, and lots of black pepper on my tuna but I eat pretty much chicken/beef now.

    What kind are you eating? The only tuna I can eat is albacore. The other tuna is just plain nasty!

    I like tuna, but man.....

    Others may disagree, but I'd be a bit concerned about the amount of mercury you are ingesting. Maybe it's just me though...

    Actually,from what Ivé read.1 can of tuna has only 13-15 grams of protein unless your doing the large cans.The problem with mayo is the sugar.Tuna goes down pretty well with rice or noodles though.Otherwise it's like eating sawdust.I wish I could get good non fat cottage cheese here in Taiwan.I miss all the foods in the states.

    I either eat it straight out of the can (in general StarKist and BumbleBee solid white albacore seem to taste the best) or... I chop up and add some large olives, 1T mayo, and black pepper.

    One 6 oz can has 37 grams of protein, but I suggest no more then one can a day. Mix up your protein sources. In the course of one day I usually get my protein from egg whites, chicken breast, turkey, whey protein powder, skim milk, and red meat.

    Youré ccorrect on the protein content,I double checked it. I have a hard time doing more than about 250 g's per day.Getting 400 in seems like a real task.

    There is not enough mercury in tuna to make anyone sick but a pregnant woman.

    Some are sensative to it, some are not. However that stuff builds up in your blood, not a good thing.

    Has anyone fixed Jodi's tuna burgers? I saw them in a thread some time ago, very good!

    (1) can of tuna
    (1) egg
    (1) cup of oats

    Mix, makes 2 patties, cook on a George Forman grill

    I add a little black pepper and garlic.
    If it is lost he finds it
    If it is in his way he moves it
    If it is sunk he brings it up

    And with any luck he will die 100 feet below the surface of the waves, because that is the closest he will ever become to being a hero.
