Protein intake question

#1 Postby PMA » Wed Aug 26, 2009 12:11 am

Here's the question on resting days do you take as much protein as you would on a lifting day?
Just wondering since I'd prefer conserving my protein sources (shakes, hemp, energy bars) when most needed.

I'm pretty sure this question has been answered in other threads.

I see no reason why protein intake should be lower.

yeah, you need as much protein, cuz your muscles are still repairing and building. What you need less is calories, because you burn 300, 500 more calories on lifting days.

Thanks for the replies, I couldn't find the other thread. I just thought your body wouldn't require as much protein since it wasn't as active and it would on training days.

to be active he body needs fuel, the only fuel it uses is glucose, so complex carbs or even better: simple carbs, aka sugar/glucose. Protein is not to be active it is to repair muscles after being active.

I am a new vegan about 2 months now. I am not a bodybuilder but work full time and do farm work. How much protein does an average person like me need? I am five foot four, around 145 pounds.
I have several injuries from my past military experience. Shoulder/rotator cuff popping and cracking issues so push ups, pull ups, and bench press are all out. My right hip popped in basic training and never healed correctly. The doctor says it is rotated slightly. I have scar tissue in my left pectoral muscle, falling arches so I wear foot levelers insoles, my left knee is stressed from leaning slightly right, my right collar bone is lower than my left, and my ankles were sprained about 7 times a piece. So, for now until I get straightened out, how much protein does an average person need?
Thanks, :?: :?
