    I've tried all the slow release blah blah and it never worked for me.
    As long as I hit around 180g a day I'm good. Don't care when I get it and in what breakdown.

    The gains I got from doubling my protein intake were crazy.

    Yeah doubling to around 180.
    TBH nothing I do is really exact, I just get as much in as I can so guess it to be around that.

    Thats a rediculous amount of shakes!
    How much do you spend a month on powders?

    Yeah very true you should be getting most of your proteins an nutrients from whole food not relying on shakes an as for 5 egg whites you would be far better off eating 4 whole eggs you loose around 20% protein taking the yoke out not to mention amino acids

    The only reason to not have yolks is calories.
    I eat 4/6 whole eggs a day I'd say.

    IIRC the yolk has the fats in it that help you absorb the protein from the egg white so is best to eat the whole egg ideally

    I think I've been misunderstood here. I was saying it's a good thing it has cholesterol. Cholesterol consumption has repeatedly been shown to improve cardiovascular health, as well as directly contribute to healthy hormone levels in men and women.

    I eat about 12 whole eggs a day and about a month ago I had to do a medical for work. My total cholesterol is 170 mg/df, HDL is 70 and my LDL was so low they couldn't get a accurate reading.

    6 shakes a day seems high but I no people on more! I no people that are big lads that mix there shakes with everything cereal yoghurt etc I spend about £150 a month on powders could get cheaper shit but that's exactly what is it shit! lol


    the reason I do 5 egg whites and one whole egg is because ive cut my carbs down to around half what I was on so next to no carbs after 7pm

    and as for eating more food I have 2 20 minute breaks and I get through 1kg of chicken a day theres not a lot more I can do I can work on machinery and eat tuna etc lol

    and I get amino acids from my pre workout amino energy ( Optimum Nutrition 270 g Amino Energy Blue Raspberry: Amazon.co.uk: Health & Beauty )

    never heard anything about to many eggs being bad

    ive seen good gains I started 7 months ago 9.8 stone and im now 13.6 and ive been shredding up for a month now im no expert im not saying my diet is the best but it does for me what people need to do is make there own diets routines etc every person is different and some things work for some people other things don't just take tips and mix abit of everything into what your going to do if you see gains great if not change it up.

    I have recently been speaking to Christian guzman natural body builder in America Christian Guzman - YouTube

    he is now my personal trainer i start work with him next week diet plan custom made for me and gym routine custom made so cant wait!

    It's what I was taught when studying nutrition as a PT, and I've changed my diet since, and it's much better now. I happily eat naturally fatty foods, and still stay pretty lean. Minimal additives in my food, try to use organic stuff as much as possible, and just don't consume many things that produce an insulin response.
