The biggest misconception about protein is that it builds muscle. Protein does not build muscle exercise builds muscle. The kind of exercise that builds the muscle is strength training. What happens when strength training is your lifting up that weight and it's tearing down the muscle. The proteins job is to come in there like I said before it's a building block so protein comes in with those strands of building block and helps to start holding up that muscle. But it's really the weight training that is breaking down that muscle and making it stronger to give protein the ability to go in and start growing and replacing some of that tissue. So don't think that if you eat more protein you are automatically going to start building a lot muscle. It's really strengthening those muscles with weight and then eating appropriate amount of protein and it's really not that much protein. You don't have to consume that much protein to get that growth and repair guide. So if you have any questions about that see your dietitian.
