protein is this dangerous?
good evening, I just started bodybuilding not long ago, I would like to know what the effects of proteins (pro 95) can be?
If I later stop weight training, would the muscle mass I gain turn into fat?
thank you so much.
Powdered prot is not dangerous as long as you don’t take 12kilos per day.
Taken after training you will have better recovery and muscle gain over time …. however do not expect miracles.
Then if you stop … your muscle mass will disappear but will NEVER turn into fat. In the body there is no metabolic path to convert muscle into fat …
what will it turn into?
These are two anti-bodybuilding fantasies.
Fantasy n ° 1: the protein is a magic substance which gives big muscles, more or less inflated of fleet according to the tribe which fantasizes.
Fantasy # 2: Bodybuilders are guys who are going to end up badly because when they stop, their muscle will turn to fat.
For fantasy n ° 1
1. Protein is not a magic product but an essential element that must imperatively be brought to us by our food. The undernutrition that leads people to physical degradation can come from under-consumption of protein, among other things. When you see the physical state of raw food eaters (a particularly hysterical sub-tribe belonging to the great vegetarian tribe, which fortunately are not all so lit – I know, I am one
) we tell ourselves that not eating protein does a lot of damage. You can find protein in the diet, but you can add a little more with powdered specialties. You can take “protein” (implied “powder”) to make your life easier or to explore strange spaces where high protein consumption rules, SOME bodybuilders play this, not all. Most bodybuilders are content to take it to simplify their lives (quickly swallowed, more or less appetite suppressant, less need to rack your brains to count everything you eat …).
2. The only thing that gives you big muscles is a well-balanced diet (with or without protein powder depending on the time you have to get yourself a correct diet) and a well-thought-out workout. The rest is fantasy. You don’t grab muscles like that, looking at a box of protein would be too easy.
3. There are quite a few (legal) products that vaguely correspond to the fantasy of “magical” muscle mass gain, but this is stuff like creatine which in my opinion shouldn’t be taken by a beginner. A beginner’s progress is going to be done first on the diet-training ratio, so that’s what he needs to focus on. If training and food are well balanced, the progress of a beginner, especially a young one, can already be very important without affecting products that stimulate the metabolism a little more. Don’t put the cart before the (big) horse, as they say!
4. There are also products (illegal) which correspond to the fantasy of people who imagine that we catch ten kilos of muscle like a cold, but there it is already prohibited, and especially dangerous. And for a beginner it’s downright stupid, because here it is more to put the cart before the (huge) horses, it is to give oneself every chance of not knowing anything about one’s body and therefore not to pick on how one can to take or not to gain muscle (or how we can lose it or not lose it, which in the long term becomes the “secret” to keep some and add more on top of what we have already managed to keep) .
For fantasy # 2:
1. Already it is magical thinking, a bit like this guy who imagined that we eliminated fat by sweating because “it looks like fat in a pan” (a very beautiful thought worthy of Jean Claude). I do not see by what alchemy protein -> fat, as by transmutation.
2. The possible passage, chemical this one results from a degradation of the proteins in glucose then a transformation of the glucose, surplus in storable fat. It’s already a nice sleight of hand, and I’m not sure it happens that easily. We should stop training, lose muscle, and the lost muscle, transformed into sugar (which I am already moderately sure) is then converted into fat because it is super-surplus ( it seems to me there downright stupid because it is infeasible) or because it is associated with too much food.
3. Let’s be concrete and give it a try: let’s imagine that we lose 100G of muscle per day (which would amount to a loss of 9kgs of muscle in three months, so it’s really a big loss). It gives us 100g of muscle -> 22g of protein (well yes, sorry, but the rest is float, bodybuilder or not, and again I rely on beef, I have never eaten bodybuilder, even when I was a predator). It therefore generously gives us an excess of 88Kcal per day. Either by considering that 100g of fat is 800kcal -> a monstrous 11g of fat more (assuming that this is possible). So a bodybuilder who would lose, let’s imagine 9kgs of muscle in three months, would gain (theoretically, and if all the conditions are right for this to be possible) 330g of fat!We usually get a lot more in a Christmas-New Year marathon, right? And I’m talking about a big loss of muscle (imagine a 9kgs steak, just to see! And imagine yourself with this barbaque stuck all over your body).
4. In real life what happens on the other hand, it is a phenomenon well known to all sportsmen, especially among those who are used to what a good blow of fork improves the results: one starts to turn. at very generous rations BUT we play sports. When the guy stops playing sports, do you really think he’ll lose his eating habits? Nay! He will continue to eat like a cow! Only, in the meantime, he will have become what is called a “sedentary” (in other words, a specimen who stubbornly refuses to do more than 500 m other than motorized, a “normal” human in our regions) … And there no need for magic anymore, the equation is radical: 4000 Kcal daily + muscle = at worst, phase of weight gain, and sometimes maintenance.4000 Kcal + nothing to fuck = brontosaurus, except in a few lucky guys. And when Brontosaurus is sad about his condition, Brontosaurus add a second portion of fries to console, and Brontosaurus swell a little, etc.
CQFD, as the other would say … There is no magic in all of this … Eating habits, that’s all.
Muscle proteins, even if they are broken down, do not turn into fat. Use in the energy sector …
Down with clichés and rumors.
Very well summarized. Without amino acids and especially branched, we die.
