Well , I just lost 50 pounds in a period of 4 months and have been hitting the weights with a high rep mid weight routine for about 2 months solid. I definelty see a difference in my body! My diet when lossing weight and getting cut pretty much consisted of Grilled chicken , salads (oil + viniger), turkey burgers , and sometimes whole wheat bread and veggies . My question is , now I wanna start building serious muscle and get big. I started to eat and make sure I get alot of protein everday, I have been eating alot of red meat , like 2 hamburgers (often for lunch) and lettuce and tamato and somtimes some whole wheat bread with them. I was wondering should I stick to the turkey burgers , or is it a bad thing that im eating beef (hamburgers), I dont want to put fat back on , I am working out 5 days a week and my muscles feel soor so im guessing all the protein im taking in isnt getting stored as fat but goin to my muscles? I also eat 2 Nitro-tech 35g protein Chocalate bars a day. and for main meals ill have 2 hamburgers with salad , or grilled chicken salads, somtimes steak with veggies .. I still have flabby skin around my belly from the weight I lost and want to build big abs to fill that skin out! anyon suggestions? little confused ..

If you're making your own burgers out of lean ground beef, you are probably okay.

I know this is irrelevent, but don't you get tired of eating all that burgers? I love 'em and all, but if you them daily, I would think it would start getting kinda bland.

eat near 96% lean beef that's minimally processed. NO hormones added and you should be safe to eat up! :cool:

the people at the dinner and on the menu says its lean beef , but i dont know for sure :/ , guess ill stick to turkey burgers and have those once in awhile , im really not sure if its fully 100% lean like that , it says it on the menu but dinners can lie no? I dunno , should I trust the dinner :P

don't trust the diner..they cook with lard, so lean to them is probably 15% fat..check out laura's lean beef..there's a website for it laurasleanbeef.com i'm not sure where you are geography-wise, but the website claims tht they'll try to stock your store..they work with chain supermarkets and all that..they have 4% fat beef, and up..and steaks
