I feel liberated
I think the study was done by a bunch of skinny ass PUSSY FAGGOT SCIENTISTS!!!
BRO SCIENCE BRO!!!
I think a lot of the guys have been saying this (to an extent) for awhile now. Get your calories in however/whenever you can throughout the day
Bro science > real science
I thought this was already accepted by most people by now, except those handful of delusional types that still think you go into starvation mode an hour after exercise.
i haven't ingested protein powder in about a year now and haven't noticed a difference honestly
But you upped your semen supplementation right?
just a little bit here and there, not enough to substitute the whey
I dont understand what the fucking "control" group that DIDNT CONSUME protein consumed? DID THEY EAT AT ALL? Are they supplementing the protein FOR FOOD, in ADDITION to food, or what?
doesnt say anything about the protein content of their diet, only protein supplementation.
re-reading that makes me want to slit my wrists and tear my hair out. what a fucking shitty study.
when the protein was taken, morning, night, or post workout is the exploratory variable.
it doesnt account of the protein in their diet. If I eat 200 grams of protein normally and they dont give me any whey I'd be fine. If I eat 60 grams and they give me 48gr to supplement, obviously im not going to grow
It's not about protein macros, it's about time of consumption ie pwo shake timing.
A properly controlled study would have all participants eating the same total calories and in the same ratio of protein/carbs/fats. The participants should also be clones.
that part is pretty confusing. not a whole lot of info
It is just about nutrient timing. Though if they didn't standardize their diets then it makes the results of the study less valid I would say. Plus the sample size and time were nothing impressive. It's hard to get funding for a major study with a huge sample size and numerous controls when it is about PROTEIN POWDER.
Anyways if you choads have a host I downloaded the full text of the article if you guys want to debate this.
Ok, who want's my 25 tubs of whey?
if i dont have a pwo shake how will i get yoked
Protein powder is used as a supplement, not as a main source of protein. (no shit sherlock) - it doesn't seem like they increased the men's dietary intake of FOOD to compensate for the lack of protein.
They're comparing men with various different body compositions. No matter how close you grab at 200 lb 7% bf range you will get different results because the metabolic and renal capacities of every person are fucking different.
Body mass will not go up/down based on protein consumption alone. It has almost literally nothing to do solely with body composition without taking into consideration caloric intake, carbs, fats, etc.
Despite only reading the abstract, these 'scientists' are fucking dolts.
