#6 You are not eating enough protein for muscle growth
It’s natural to want to limit your diet when you’re trying to transform your body. Some people approach their diet when they’re training as something they can sacrifice because they figure eating less will force the body to transform stored fat into muscle quicker. They’re dead wrong. If you want to build muscle, you have to feed yourself and that feeding should come in the form of quality lean protein.
The best protein ratio you should follow is .5 – .8 g per kilogram of your body weight. First, you need to convert your weight from pounds to kilograms. Just take your weight in pounds and divide it by 2.2. So a person weighing 200 pounds will be 90.9 kilograms. You then take that number and multiply it by .5 and .8 grams (g). The result will be 45.5 g to 72.7 g, which is the ideal range of grams of protein you should be consuming per day.
Consuming protein shouldn’t be a hard thing for anybody. The hard part comes when you try to cut intake or are eating protein that is packed with fat. Aim for leaner options like chicken, seafood, eggs and protein shakes and that will put you on the right track!
