I am taking in 170 grams of protein daily and I weigh about 154 pounds so is this too much? I am planning to add n pre workout cretin shake too should I do that? My goal is to gain weight. I am 5 10 about 180cm
What kind of protein are you taking? If you are trying to gain weight i would suggest "Gain proteins" about 20 mins after workout.
The most important question is what type of working out are you doing? Lifting Heavy weights necessitate much higher protein intake than walking a few miles daily.
Be careful of taking creatine....dont get me wrong it works but remember everything goes through your kidneys.Drink alot of water and take less than what is suggested and cycle on and off..take it for a month ,stop for a month....But being consistent and lifting heavy will get u big also...
I do believe there is a formula to figure out how much protein to consume for your height, weight and fitness goals.
Just to give you an idea...
-consuming 160 grams protein a day.
So back to your question, it seems just about right but you should really research it.
Ask any huge body builder and they will tell you 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight and have a caloric surplus of 200-500 grams a day and spread meals over 5-7 meals throughout the day. There is a lot of research out there but these three things are the most "tryed and true" methods out there.
