Want Bigger Muscles? Start Eating More Protein

Big muscles are built not only in the gym but also in kitchen.

To build bigger biceps, the key could be protein loading, according to research from McMaster University in Canada.

Study participants following a resistance training program who consumed a daily total of 1.6 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight improved both strength and mass over guys who followed a conditioning program alone but didn’t up their protein intake. (For a 180-pound guy, that means a three-egg omelet for breakfast, a turkey sandwich for lunch, beef jerky as a snack, and a salmon fillet for dinner.)

The people who saw the biggest improvements started out reasonably fit, leading researchers to conclude that a protein-heavy diet is most effective at muscle building once the heavy lifting—so to speak—is already done
