    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.

    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.

    Chuck Norris once lost his keys and couldn't remember where he put them. So he tortured himself for half an hour until he gave up their location.

    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:

    FOOD ISN'T EATEN TO BE ENJOYED, IT IS EATEN TO MAKE YOU GROW!
    Thats what I tell myself while I am gagging down so much
