1. Depends on what kind of protein, clean buring protein like egg tolk shouldn't break you out.

2. Whey Isolate.

3. Red meat is hard to digest, anything thats hinders digestive transit adds to acne causing factors.

Meat and eggs are the best sources. Red meat is great.

It's unlikely that you will break out from protein rich food but protein supplements such as whey often cause problems.

You don't need a lot of protein to see results - and your still growing naturally. Protein is definitely important but you don't need to go crazy, and it's not healthy to do that anyway.

High quality protein without additives should not break you out. If it does you have major problems. There are many different types of protein sources (milk, nuts, meat, fish) and you may have allergies to some of the different kinds, but it's unlikely that your allergic to all of them.

Good sources of protein are meat, eggs (mostly the white - watch your yolk count), fish, whey protein isolate (from a quality source, not over processed and no additives or sweeteners or flavorings add) . There are up and down sides with all of those options so it's down to personal choice - but a wide variety is always best i think (to spread risk and benefits).

red mears? Isn't he a survival specialist? :). If your talking red meat - i think red meat is great in moderation, couple of times a week is fine. Same for tuna, i wouldn't eat tuna more than twice a week.

But it's not all about protein, i need high quality carbs, essential fats and protein to build muscles - and i need to make sure that i balance those throughout the day. And don't forget working out correctly - just eating lots of protein doesn't make muscle all on it's own. It takes a long time to healthily bulk up to a decent size and also remain acne free - it takes a lot of hard work and focus :)

take a protein thats loaded with amino acids post workout, for example ON 100% whey, will it break you out? who knows try it for a month.

theres really no need to constantly load protein throughout the day unless ur not eating a proper diet. If you short on time, then i recommend a slow digestive protein, casein. Or buy the mutant protein thats known to be the king of taste, muscle milk.

i take a shit load of supplements and keep acne down to a min but then again im in my 20s.

whey protein isolate... not concentrate, make sure its lactose and sugar free with low carb

allthewhey.com has them faily cheap if you buy in bulk (15 or 25 lb)

meats.... chicken, beef, fish..... chicken leg quarters are about 60 cents per pound, i usually knock off around 5 lbs a day (i take the skin off, some leave it on its really up to you, i just want the protein of it, not all the hydrogenated fats)..... usually buy ground beef (6 oz burger comes out to like 80 cents, 370 calories/32 grams fat/29 grams proten

complex carbs... brown rice (about 1 cup per day will give you around 600 calories), oatmeal is good too

eggs... cook the whites and leave the yolks runny aka sunny side up (egglands best are what i use but regular are fine too i guess)

spinach.... i usually kill a half bag-1 bag a day... its about a dollar per bag and gives you fiber + protein

Protein intake in weight lifters is slightly overrated. Assuming you add one pound of muscle each week (and that's being generous), that would call for about 35 extra grams of protein per day (and again, that's being generous). That's nothing to go crazy about.

Aim for about 115 grams of protein per day, and get most of the protein from meat, eggs, and fish. Other good sources are oats, potatoes, seeds, and legumes. The protein quality in nuts, grains, and produce is questionable.

If you are lifting everyday cut back abit. You are most likely overtrained. I think its best to lift 2 -3 times per week. You grow on rest days.

Nuts have a lot of protein, be sure to have an after workout protein shake with the whey protein mix and add some olive oil, I also add wheatgrass.

Height 5'10

weight 140

Bench Max 165

Bicep Max 90

Military Press 140

I don't eat that much red meat, I try to stay away from it so I can shit, but I eat ribs every once in a while.

I weighed 135 last year and lost a lot of weight over summer since I had to quit swimming.

I've gained about 20 pounds this year.

to put on as much muscle mass as possible extremely high protein intakes will boost that capability for numerous reson mainly 1)extremely high protein takes decrease the rate of protein turnover 2)abundant protein causes even more possitive nitrogen balance

this is not healthy in the long run however but if you want to get as muscular as possible. and yes it will probably break you out more from the increased water retention unless your body is extremely efficient at utilizing and removing excessive protein

A lot of this depends on your genes, metabolism, energy levels, body fat, diet, sleep, training and dedication. It's taken me a very long time to find what works for me (and i'm not huge), as it does 90% of the big bodybuilders (i think thats why they all publish their own "this definitely works" ebook lol). Very few people are lucky enough to just eat more protein, work out a few times a week and get huge - it's a rare thing, thats why all the BB forums are full of "hard gainers" Lol. It takes time, and effort and dedication to get big.

If you listen to other people, or read books telling you how to do it - the chances are like many you'll improve a bit, but you won't ever find a specific routine that produces the results you want. There are some basics you need covered. You need to make sure your in good health (if your ill your body is using resources to get better), you need to get enough good nutrition that covers all basic needs for bodybuilders (everyone has different requirement of vitamins/minerals/nutrients). You probably need to improve your metabolism. You need to get enough quality sleep and you need to train correctly.

If you do a bit of research you'll find that you can shoot down all the myths about bodybuilding - things like you can only train 3 days a week, as you can only build muscles when resting. Some people grow huge by training for a whole week , then taking a week off. Some people train everyday and also grow huge. But it can depend on your energy levels, and metabolism. There is no fixed plan that works for everyone.

For me personally my body grows best with a balance of protein/carbs/fat. It also needs change in my routine regularly. For a couple of weeks i overeat by about 20%, then for another couple of weeks i under eat by about 15% to lose any extra fat i've gained. I continue to work out the same for a month, then change the routine completely. I always used to improve a bit, then hit brick walls. I've followed god knows how many other peoples routines that "always work" and always found they don't! Although i did find 1 useful ebook - which basically gave you a starting routine, and many options and told you to work it out for yourself! Sound advice!

And probably my only golden rule - remember to drink enough water. Water helps flush out toxins from overloading on protein, water also replaces losses during workouts and finally muscle is mostly made up of water! Do not underestimate the importance of water! And if i were you'd i'd stay off most BB sups till your older or hit a major brickwall :).
