Intake of Protein Suppl
I am a male 23YO with height 170cms and weight 79Kgs. Since last 1 month I have been to gym at early morning and do exercises like Jog/Run, weight lift and resistance training. I am thinking of adding protein supplements into my diet. But I read from different sites are they cause problem in kidney and also cause gastrointestinal problems. So I want to know whether or not I should add protein into my diet? Is it safe ? What should be the dosage of protein intake? It will be helpful by getting all these answers. Thanks alot

I understand your concern. It is always recommended that you get protein from natural sources, like Dr. Chethan suggested you the food items. For building muscles you need to know the right quantity of the protein intake required for your body type n the level of training you are doing. You can have sattu atta products regularly which aids muscle gain n strength as it's very high in protein. You can connect any of us personally for customized diet plan suited best in your body type.

Hi..... Only calories won’t add to your body weight,include the right amount of proteins to your diet. Remember , if you want to put on weight and look fit, you need to build muscles not flab. Eat - Eggs, lean meat, fish, pulses, sprouts, and dairy products that rich sources of proteins. Fish such as tuna and mackerel are rich in oil and are one of the best ways to increase weight.
