    Default What's more important for building muscle carbs or protein?

    [FONT=arial]Protein is the most important macronutrient in building muscle. Carbs are important for providing glycogen, which gives you the energy to train. People who lift weights generally have higher protein requirements. The RDA recommends 0.36 grams of protein per pound of body weight. Building muscle requires a lifter to be in a caloric surplus. In addition to adequate amounts of protein, carbs are essential for getting enough nutrients and calories.

    No 1. Work hard in the gym.

    No 3 Avoid carbs at all cost if you like being weak, lethargic and unhealthy.

    No 3. Unless you are roided to the gills, when you eat any normal diet you will get more than enough protein.

    Carb loaded crap for breakfast with about 12gm of protein in it including milk?

    Coupla sangas with about 25g at lunch at best?

    Meat and veg at dinner with about 20-50gm protein depending on the eating attitudes?

    No where near enough even after say 2 snacks with about 6gm of protein each.

    Fuck all. Unless you weigh 40kg, then its about right.

    30-50gm per meal to satisfy protein synthesis effectively. 12gm wont do a fucken thing beyond essential processes, of which building extra new muscle isnt one of them.

    No need for carbs, your body creates all the glycogen it needs from protein, no such thing as essential carbs or minimum amount of carbs.

    Anyone that thinks carbs are required for energy either has rocks in their head or has a fucked up metabolism needing constant insulin spiking to make themselves feel good.

    Chicken is rubbish for high volume though.
    Beef is easy AF.
