I am vegetarian and there's no way I can protein without a lot of carbs coming along. If you take lentils, beans, etc. - the staple protein sources of vegetarians, they also come with a lot of carbs. There's virtually nothing in the vegetarian diet that's the equivalent of tuna...
Quote: Originally Posted by PolePosition Pretty interesting study results Lance. So how does one reconcile that with Turbozed's results? Looks like those are referring to protein synthesis which is actually a different thing from increased muscle mass. There's a lot of confusion about the two.

One cup of cooked broccoli contains 74 mg of calcium, plus 123 mg of vitamin C, which significantly improves calcium's absorption; all this for a total of only 44 calories. To put this in...
Here's another interesting study on testosterone and muscle growth, also from "How Much Protein?" Quote: One of the most interesting studies showing the effect of working out without any extra protein was published back in 1996. 43 men who were experienced weight lifters took part in research that involved exercise and weekly injections of anabolic steroids (testosterone enanthate) for 10 weeks [Bhasin S, 1996]. The men in the study were divided into 4 groups;...

Here's an interesting study taken from "How Much...
Quote: Originally Posted by turbozed Hmm...can you link me to any of these studies? Pretty interesting since everywhere I've read seems to confirm that protein is integral to muscle synthesis.

Not sure I follow you here...Intermittent fasting does create a calorie deficit, and yes, creating a calorie deficit is the primary cause of fat loss.
