Day 5: Pile on the protein.
If you want your muscles to grow, you have to give them the fuel to do that. And that means eating enough protein. To be more specific: 1.8 grams of the stuff for each kilogram you weigh.

Of course, you can find protein in meat, but it’s also in vegetarian options like beans, nuts, eggs, and quinoa.Back to top
