I'm fresh to this site and wanted to post a question that has probably come up many times before but honestly, due to slow connection speeds I gave up trying to search for it.
I just started training at local community gym and have hired knowledgeable help in my quest to develop my body to a desired level. I have been told that my current diet needs a complete overhaul and I especially need to increase my intake of eggs each day. I find that my time management skills at home really blow and wanted to know if it would be just as beneficial to digest protein shakes instead of digesting eggs on a regular basis. My workout consists many of upper body strength training as well as I do regular bicycle rides of approximately 80 to 100 KM a week, roughly 3-4x a week. I know the body uses protein to build muscle and wasn't sure if this shortcut would be doing more harm than good to my body.
Any insight into my problem would be valued greatly. I'll discuss this with my trainer the next we meet. I'm supposed to have my body fat tested to chart my progress. Currently I'm 6', 170lbs with a slim build. Thanks again for your help.
