Post them below, email podcast JasonFerruggia. You can always hit me up on Twitter JasonFerruggia And, if you liked the show a short review on iTunes would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for listening. I love it. I read the new one every time you send it to me, the updated version. How much protein does one actually need? I know. Man, that guy is freaky jacked and he eats grams of protein.

Me, too. I used to get my protein for free. I have done high protein. We used to be a joke about just double-dosing everything. So if Meso-Tech was 52 grams of protein, we did for us. Give me two packs. When you go through the research, you come up with some interesting things. What really the current body of research shows is that the effective protein on your ability to build muscle from the measurements we currently use, is maximally stimulated at around 20 grams of high quality protein.

It stays peaked like that for about two hours and then even though the amino acids in your blood are still like at maximum levels, it comes back down. It needs some downtime, just like we do. You are just die hard and you get up in the middle of the night, go to the washroom and you pound back another 25 grams of protein.

Who are we kidding? Nutrition trends and advice, they started on the fringe. It was bodybuilding and it was anything else that was super fringe at the time. Then it slowly bleeds in the mainstream so a lot of what we think about health and fitness and how you should eat, it came from this fringe group who were trying to figure out the best way to eat given their unique circumstances.

Then it just kind of bled into how the rest of us thought we should train. From a protein point of view, I guess from a science perspective based on what we know now, regular dosing of protein but in a moderate range of 25 grams seems to make sense.

But it probably comes down to being a whole matter of just consistency through the months and months of eating. Okay, this is the interesting about research is we read it really blindly. That means that the timed one, the 25 grams is better, significantly better. It still worked, right? One pound maybe? It had no response to muscle-building at all. It was still tasty and awesome. You just made damn sure you got your You just went over a bit.

You hit your 25 and you kept going. I view protein like training. Consistency is the key. Some workouts will be longer and shorter while some meals are going to be bigger and smaller. At the end of the day, what are we talking about here? So for the most part, we see some wicked cool transformations and then you did what you were going to do.

You can benefit from a lower ratio or percentage. Now you imagine those weekly measurements or every other day measurements. It still dwindles from there. It gets even more just depressingly slow. Do you place any emphasis on timing of protein, especially around training? I like to think of it that way. Now most of the time, it just seems right for most people to eat at some point around a workout session.

I have no idea how I did that. I used to drink like one during training and then one after. I would be destroyed if I did that now. But we did it! There was actually a point in time where I used to do in between training not only Gatorade but a Snickers bar. At the time, I probably thought there was some magic. You never change, right? I keep trying. Do you notice anything? Because I do notice that some things do make a difference for me.

I noticed that no carbs before is not so good but if I have them too close to training then I get zero pump. But anything in between like just sort of normal food, that tends to be kind of my sweet spot.

You mentioned fasting there a little bit. You lose all your muscle and fat. I believe they stopped doing it because now everybody is shredded and have abs like. I liked it better when people were impressed by a two-pack ab, right? Every single person has it and all you have to do is figure out how to fit it into your training and you lifestyle. Just play with it. But what I find really interesting is that people get stuck. Being tired affects everything.

Well, then a hour fast sucks. So what do you do? The difference between a hour fast and a hour fast is 4 hours.

I see you posting your little pics there on Instagram with your long hair. Well look, there has to be a picture of me with a cute monkey, never mind the fact my chest is jacked in the pic.

What I want you to think of is the monkey. For the average guy—we started this talking about the average guy—is not going to get over pounds, lean and muscular. Even naked lungs are like two pounds. Most of that was muscle.

Those are my kind of babies. They keep me going. Different story but yeah, your weight goes up. But I know how to get it back down. If you diet, down to the same size. I get it. So I found that just all the trying, relentlessly to build muscle by getting fat just results in getting fat.

You just have to look trained. I have abs that show up in pictures. Your vascularity in a gym is a great cue. Yeah, Pilon goes through a soft phase. The stomach is flat, flat, flat, belly button, little paunch.

My general rules are usually based off of your circumferences. I just found that they are the easiest, best way to quickly assess a person, your waist circumference, your shoulder circumference. Then if you want to get really technical, you do neck and arms and legs, that kind of thing. You can go and you handle low calories for a brief period of time. Then you taper them back up. It just seems to kind of work out that way. But for most of us what will happen is you go up by seven pounds, your arms are the same, your neck is the same, your shoulders is the same and your waist is up two inches.

Not cool. So I go by that simple rule. You can even build in a buffer. Do you pay much attention to that in terms of recommending if someone should go higher or lower carb or higher and lower fat, where they store their body fat?


Brad Pilon’s How Much Protein Review

Here are some important things that you should know about this book. The main thesis of the book is that there is actually not much need for the high protein levels that are called for in most bodybuilding diets. It also explains that the reason why protein is so hyped is because it is promoted by the supplement companies. After all, of course they want you to believe that you need more protein — then they will sell more product!
