i started using whey protein about a week ago and have not seen any breakouts... im also on a skincare regimen that works really well.

i use 20g, twice a day. three times if im working out hard.

i also get protein from fish and chicken.

I haven't noticed anything from using protein powders. I've used whey, soy (and I don't wanna hear any soy will make a woman out of you stuff....) and milk protein (whey and casein).

Just remember that gaining mass is about total calories, not protein alone. If you are very lean and have hard time putting on any kind of weight, then eating a lot of fat is the easiest way of getting calories.

don't eat alot of FAT!! Eat alot of protein COMPLEX CARBS, that is the key. Veggies, preferably raw, and whole grain rice, you want to look cut and big right? not like the michelin man

Dont use soy. Soy give you really bad gas. I know from experience. Whey all the way.

Again that is more of a total calorie thing. Of course if you eat a lot of carbs, then you can't eat a lot of fat and vice versa. My body seems to run better on high fat intake and fairly low carbs.

You are simply not eating enough. No amount of creatine in the world will help you if you up your calorie intake. How many calories do u eat in a day? If you don't know that is your first problem to gaining any signifigant muscle.

Stu

Right now I'm on a ketogenic diet trying to get a little bit leaner, so I don't eat carbs pretty much at all. So carbs come from vegetables (about 2 lbs. a day), protein from eggs, red meat, turkey, chicken and fish (salmon and tuna) and a little bit of nuts. Fat comes from the protein sources and from rapeseed oil and olive oil. When I'm on my "regular" diet, my carbs come from vegetables, fruits, oatmeal in the morning and whole grain rye bread (we eat that a lot in here) for lunch.

To agentx, I don't know how tall you are, but at 55 kgs. you need to eat a lot more. I'd add some high fat foods to your diet rather than using things like creatine. All kinds of nuts are good, pour some olive oil and rapeseed oil to those protein shakes. The thing that you need is calories and lots of them.

With Regards to my weight gaining - Damn it's working like crazy, i've been on it just nearly a fortnight and my muscles are getting huge.

Haven't even started taking whey protein yet (had no time to get it)

Maybe im not as bad as a hardgainer as i thought i was, thats the only explanation i can think of.

High Complex Carbs and Plenty of Protein seem to be the ticket for me.

Yeah, just don't eat too much of that rice if you gain fat easily. :naughty:

i wish i could gain fat more easily! im one of those tall and skinny freaks who never gain weight.

ive been eating about 2/3 cup (uncooked) of brown rice each day with olive oil and crushed garlic... it actually tastes pretty good.
