Im 20 years old... 6'2 and I weigh like 158 pounds. Yea...I need to gain weight. But I obviously want to put the weight on in muscle. From everything I have read on this site I have come to the following conclusion about how I should be eating to put on muscle mass. Correct any of my mistakes...
I should be eating at least 160 grams of protein everyday. I am young, and I have a high metabolism so I should be keeping a high intake of calories and carbohydrates. I should eat something 5 times a day to stay out of catabolic state which burns muscle tissue. For breakfast a wholesome "real food" meal. In between breakfast and lunch ill have a protein bar. at lunch another wholesome meal. in between lunch and dinner another protein bar. then at dinner another wholesome meal or perhaps a protein shake INSTEAD since I work out after dinner time.
I want to be cut..I dont want to be one of those guys with big arms and a big round gut. I like the 6 pack I have now.
Does this sound correct? Anything need correction or changing? I use muscle milk for my protein shakes...what are your opinions on this supplement? It has 32 grams of protein and like 650 cals.
