No! I don’t think you need to use protein supplement
Unless you are planing to compete at the next body building meeting!
Outside of the power training context, I belive extra protein is not needed at all.
Here is why:
- I don’t think it’s healthy food that you can use long term
- It’s pricey! – Count around an extra $100-$200/month – needs to fit in your budget
- You don’t really need it.
- It’s not really an eating habit you want to maintain on the long term for the previous reasons.
That said, I used it for 3 months and saw significant increase in my muscle volume.
I believe extra protein together with 3 x 2 hour power building sessions/week were the key to this success.
However, maintaining that rhythm on the long term is very challenging. After a few months, you motivation can drop together with your muscle mass.
Do you really need the extra muscle volume? – If it’s just for the looks, your level of motivation might quickly drop! – What about the strain on joints and overall body – Think long term!!! – is lifting heavy weights your best approach?
If you stop after training for 3 to 6 months, you are back at your starting point within 6 months.
Can your self esteem take it?
That’s all for now 🙂
By the way… Low sugar yoghurt???? No way!!! Go for sugar free yoghurt absolutely!!!
