how many grams of protein should be looking to take in per day?
i work out three times a week:
monday - arms and chest
wednesday - back and shoulders
friday - legs
pretty much all freeweights
im also going to start going in on saturdays to do a bit of cardio work.
so my question is ... how many grams of protein and carbohydrates need to be taken in a day?
also can anyone recommend a good pre workout meal?, i tied outmeal but it tastes like crap and i cant eat it .,,, any suggestions?
Your questions are difficult to answer because you haven't shared enough information yet. What are your stats, your goals, and your current diet?

I use the following:
Protein: 1g/1lb. (total bodyweight) or 35% of total calories
Carbs.: 2-3g/1lb. (total bodyweight) or 50% of total calories
Fats: 15% of total calories
Ideal preferences vary by individual, prepare for many different answers to this post.
my goal is to put on alot of muscle mass, and i also want to lose quite a bit of body fat,
im about 13.5 stone anda bout 6 foot 1 what that is in lbs i dont know because i dont know how to work it out
i also dont really have a fixed diet. i eat alot of eggs, beans, chicken, pasta and rice.
stone?? how can you measure weights in stone and be on a computer?? what civilization are you from?? but anyways, if you can, eat more than 13.5 stones of protein per day. that should be sufficient.
Don't just call me pessimist. Try and read between the lines. I can't imagine why you wouldn't Welcome any change, my friend. I wanna see it all come down. suck it down. flush it down.
Eat as much as your goals require.
