When it comes to gaining muscle if you’ve got a fast metabolism it can be difficult to get enough calories in to gain muscle. Typically it has to hover in the 3,000–4,000 range (depending on your size).

Getting that amount of calories in clean calories is extremely hard, and often you have to eat so much you feel like throwing up.

That’s where protein powder comes in. It’s not just for building and repairing muscle that’s been broken down, it’s to aid in hitting our calorie intake. Adding in a couple scoops of protein in some milk twice a day can be the difference between gaining muscle and staying the same size. I talk about that a lot in my free course and how it’s important to keep track of your calories.

  1. Is it mandatory to have protein powder?
    And How to recognise the protein substance or element intake is ‘Animal Fat’ free?

    1. It’s not mandatory, no, but it really does help a lot. It’s so much easier to meet your nutrient needs with the help of supplements when building muscle.

      I would recommend going to a supplement, gym or pharmaceutical store. Most of them have trained health consultants that can match your physical nutrient needs with the right supplement.

      Most of these supplements have eliminated the animal fat element. There are also vegan or plant based protein powders available.

      The eggs you are currently taking are great sources of protein.

    2. Eggs are easily digestible and a great source of protein. You can also get egg protein powder so you don’t have to eat so many eggs. I also sometimes buy pasteurized egg whites. You can drink them since they’re pasteurized. Great to add to smoothies. Great non animal proteins that build muscle are soy and pea proteins. They’re available in powders.

    1. Yeah when I was competing the food quantities got to me too. Very similar to what you mentioned above. Shakes really help get your calorie count up in an easy and affordable way
