And I'm basically starting fresh, I'm skinny as all hell, I lost basically everything I gained due to not eating enough and not working out for so long.
Anywayz that's not what I wanted to talk about.
Basically I have forgotten a few vital pieces of information about nutrition.
Question #1: How often should I have a meal (I know 6 times a day), I generally go by 2 1/2 - 3 hours after smaller meals/protein shakes and 3 - 3 1/2 hours after larger meals. I don't ever leave it any longer than 4 hours between meals
Am I about right here?
Question #2: If I'm eating enough protein (1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight) But I'm not eating OVER my daily calories that I burn (but im not too far off) will I gain any strength/mass? If not, will eating more protein help gain mass or will it still not work if I don't go over my daily calories burned?
Thanks guys, I needs help.
EDIT: Oh yeah, 1 more question, because I haven't worked out for a fair while does that mean I won't have to work out quite as intensely as I use to when I lifted regularly to achieve hypertrophy (Because you know how muscles adapt to working out and making it harder to achieve muscular hypertrophy, does your body kind of Un-adapt if you haven't worked out in a while)? Or will it still be the same as when I was working out regularly last year?
