Do you gain weight(fat) from drinking protein shakes?
I often hear skinny/slim girls who want to gain weight say “hey, I am going to buy some protein powder because I need to gain weight” or ” I want to buy protein powder so that my butt will grow”
or girls who does not know anything about training or nutrition and just spread false information because they have “RESEARCH for months” on how to gain curves/muscles and read something on internet
about “training” and “nutrition”…
Just because protein powder is a good supplement for those who wants to gain lean muscles or lose weight does not mean it is a MIRACLE POWDER because it is NOT.
You can get results from only eat protein in your diet,and MOST girls overconsume protein because they have read that it is good for muscle growth.they believe it is a miracle product and that they will gain fast
only by drinking protein shakes,or take other expensive supplements
Protein is good to eat if you want to gain LEAN muscles,NOT to add FAT,AND protein it selfs will not do much for you if you DO NOT TRAIN WITH WEITHS
Protein will not help you gain a bigger butt just because you drink a lot of protein shakes,and NO, protein will not ONLY feed your arse,hips or thighs,there are no foods or supplements that will only
help to gain a certain body part by just eat it.
so forget about this!
Protein for weight gain is not a good choice(if you don’t want to gain LEAN muscles,but then you have to hit the gym hard as well to gain some)
If you really want to gain weight.then it is all about CALORIES; you have to eat a lot more than you BURN to gain weight,and the best nutrient to use for that is carbohydrates combine with fat in your diet
this will give you a rapid weight gain!
Why do I say that protein is not a good choice for weight gain? well it is because it produce hormones such as glycogen and IGF-1 which are two hormones that stimulates fat burn
so, if you consume more protein,you will also have a better fat loss process,so that would be the opposite of what you want.BUT if you consume more calories and based it on protein,well you will gain weight because of
MORE calories and not from the protein itself.so it is a waste of money(cuz protein is expensive)
If you eat more carbohydrates on the other hand,you will gain fat FAST,because it produce insulin,insulin is a GREAT hormone that help with muscle gain and also fat gains,if you also combine it with fat(a lot of fat mixed with carbohydrates) then you will gain very fast with a + calorie intake.
If you on the other hand want to gain lean muscles and don’t want to put on too much fat on your body when you eat more calories than you burn, a great way to prevent too much fat on your “bulk up phase” would be
to consume(add) more protein into your diet in addition to your daily calorie intake.
