Muscle Building Tricks For Cheap Skates
For lunch, I eat two cans of tuna mixed with Italian dressing, mayonnaise or tartar sauce and bits of bacon, depending on my mood.
Before I go to bed, I drink a protein shake made with two tablespoons of protein powder and half and half cream.
This is why:
Those two meals give me 150 grams of protein, plus lots of calories and fat. And those two meals bring me closer to my goal of 200 grams of protein per day.
But even better, those two meals only cost me about a dollar a meal, perfect for a normal kid like me with a family to support.
As you may have guessed, I got the ideas for those two meals by studying how bodybuilders of yesteryear ate.
It seems like today’s bodybuilders have all the money in the world to spend on high-priced supplements and gourmet dinners. But the boys of yesteryear had to find ways to build muscle WITHOUT breaking the bank.
So they stuck to the basics. Tried and true foods. Protein shakes with heavy cream. Tuna and mayonnaise. Of course, you may be wondering if eating that much protein at one meal is effective.
Most modern bodybuilding advice will tell you that the body can only absorb 30 grams of protein per meal. This is, of course, nonsense.
Think about it: if you were starving and on a single meal that contains no more than 200 grams of protein, do you really think your body would shed 170 grams of protein and let you die? Of course not. Your body will adapt to use what it needs to sustain life.
So clearly the idea of eating just 30 grams of protein per meal is just a myth.
