Guys, I have a question. How can I build muscles quickly? (August, 30 2019). Do I need to buy some supplements?
To Build Muscles You Need Protein, Protein… and Protein
The main reason protein supplement works so great at building muscle is that it provides you pure protein and no other bullshit. For example, paneer is a good source of protein but in order to consume 25 grams of protein from paneer, you need to eat 175gm of paneer i.e. 470 calories. But, a whey protein supplement will give you 25 gm protein for just 1 scoop of 30gm (100 calories only)
So, just for getting 125 gm of protein, you will be eating roughly 2500 calories. What about other nutrients – Carbs? Good fat? Antioxidants? Vitamins? Instead of becoming muscular one will become chubby/fat if he or she will eat so many calories only for protein.
It is only possible to gain muscles without protein supplement if you could include lean sources of protein (high protein with low calorie) in your diet
