What is Protein, And Why Do You Need It?

protein jar
Protein, is made out of amino acids, which are linked together in chains. Amino acids are the principle means by which we get nitrogen -an essential element for your survival.

In order to build big and strong muscles you will need to achieve a positive protein balance. This means your body will have to synthesise  more protein than it will break down. If the opposite occurs and you enter a negative protein balance your body will start getting amino acids from your muscles cause that's what they are built from. This means that they will get smaller and weaker.

How to measure protein balance?

Your protein balance can be estimated by measuring your nitrogen balance, since protein contains nitrogen. Having a positive nitrogen balance is generally taken as a sign of an anabolic (building muscles) state with an overall gain (retention) of nitrogen for the day, whereas a negative nitrogen balance indicates a catabolic (breaking muscles down) state.

Another way to keep track of your protein balance is by measuring your leucine balance. A positive balance of this amino acid shows protein anabolism. And as you are probably already guessing, a negative leucine balance suggests protein catabolism.

Simply said in order to have bigger muscles you need a positive protein balance. The way to know if you reached this is to check if your nitrogen and/or leucine balances are positive.

How to maintain a positive protein balance?

As you know you can't eat all the time so there are gaps in protein intake such as when you are sleeping. So the question is how does your body maintain a positive balance when its not receiving any for such long periods.

Your body maintains its protein balance largely by adjusting tissue protein breakdown according to how much protein you feed it.

In between meals, you loose tissue protein, but after a good protein-containing meal, you recoup what you lost through a decrease in protein breakdown. In most cases the synthesis of tissue protein stays the same after the meal, yet because protein breakdown is reduced, the result is a gain in protein. This is protein balance. You don't gain muscles and you don't lose any.

In order to actually make your muscles bigger and stronger, you’ve got to make sure you get adequat amounts of protein every 3 hours. The exact amount of protein is calculated according to the persons body weight. The stnadard formula is 1.5 grams per pound of body weight. So if you are e 200 pount person you need at least 300 grams of protein. As I already mentioned you need to get a good amount of protein every 3 hours. For the regular person who sleeps 8 hours, this means 5-6 meals containing a good protein source or in other words at least 50 grams of high quality protein per meal.

You are probably wondering why I keep saying things like "good protein source" and "high quality protein", right? Thats because not all protein is equal. As we already know protein is made by chains of amino acids, however, some sources have a bigger variety of amino acids than others. For example the protein in eggs has a different structure from the protein in carrots. Good sources of protein are most meats, dairy and eggs. Legumes and nuts are also considered to contain a great protein, however, their amino acid profile is also not optimal so you still need to eat them in a combination with a better protein source. OK, so we know how much protein we need every day- for our example of a 200 pound man it is 50 grams per meal for 6 meals. This means that he needs to eat somewhere around 150 grams of chicken breast, or 4-5 eggs in every meal. The good news for our friend is that he can substitute some of that with a protein supplement, thats why they are so popular in the bodybuilding world. Tasty, fast and easy to make.

I also forgot to mention that protein is very important for some of the most powerful muscle-building hormones like testosterone, HGH, insulin-like growth factor-1. Actually without it, they can't do their job.

So after reading all of this, you probably realize that picking the best protein supplement is a very important part of your bodybuilding efforts. There are many companies that claim their protein is the best, so be careful! The one I use is Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard and I am pretty happy with it so far. You don't have to use the same one to see results, however, make sure you do your research so you end up buying the best one for your budget (just like I did).

Acne In Adult People

In the post about acne myths I point out that most people think that adults don't suffer from acne. Thats a common misbelief with really bad results. People think they can just let acne cure it self with time and in most cases they are wrong, which leads to serious stress and lack of confidence in their life as adults.

There are several reasons for acne in adult people.
  1. Not treating acne in teenage years.
  2. Using tap water or other chlorinated chemicals.
  3. Pregnancy and menstrual period are often causing acne in adult women.
  4. The intake of steroids, anti-tuberculosis drugs, lithium, anti-epileptic drugs and medications that contain iodine.
  5. Skin pressure such as the one that a backpack applies can be a cause for acne.

As you see some causes are easy to avoid like the first 2. To treat acne read my post about The 2 Best Acne Treatment Products and to deal with the tap water you can use a basic water filtration system.

The other causes are a bit harder to avoid, I doubt that women will not get pregnant just because of acne or people will stop taking their anti-epileptic drugs for the same reasons... for those people and for the adults that already have acne once again I recommend reading the post about the 2 best acne treatment products by clicking on the link I gave earlier in this post.

Try to do what ever you can to avoid the reasons for acne in adult people we already spoke about, but don't get fanatic... And if you are one of those people who think that acne will cure itself with time, YOU ARE WRONG, please treat it!

15 Interesting Facts About The Muscles

human muscles

In this post you will discover some interesting facts about the human muscles, but first I want to make sure you know, exactly what the muscles are. Basically they are the organs that allow us to move. They are made out of fibers. These fibers stretch and contract under the command of your brain. What holds the muscles to the bone is called tendon. When the muscles contract they pull the tendon, which pulls the bone and... you move.

Do you know that you have more than 640 muscles, which are separated in to two groups- Voluntary and Involuntary muscles?

Voluntary are the muscles that you move whenever you want to, like your biceps for example.

Involuntary are the muscles that move without you thinking about it, like the heart. It contracts up to 80 times a minute and doesn't depend on whether you want it or not.

Now, when you know what muscles are, its time for the facts:
  1. The biggest muscle in the human body is the gluteus maximus- your butt
  2. The smallest is the stapedius. It is thinner than a thread of cotton and is located in your ear
  3. The reason for goosebumps is the contraction of small muscles located in your hair's roots
  4. You use 17 muscles in order to smile, and 43 to frown
  5. The fastest muscle group in the human body is the one responsible for blinking. Thanks to them you are able to blink up to 5 times a second
  6. You use up to 200 muscles in order to take a single step
  7. The strongest muscle in the human body is located in the jaw and its name is the the masseter muscle
  8. Your muscles are normally around 40-50% of your body weight
  9. Every half a kilo (1 lb) of muscle you gain, your body burns an extra 50 calories a day
  10. The fibers you already know about can support up to 1,000 times their own weight
  11. 75% of the muscle is water
  12. Producing the human speech takes 72 different muscles
  13. The human tongue consists of sixteen separate muscles, not one as many people think.
  14. Did you know that your muscles have their own memory? This is why once you learn how to ride a bike, you can never forget it, no matter how long you haven't done it.
  15. Muscles produce up to 85% of your body's heat. In fact they produce enough daily heat to boil 2 pints of water for an hour
These are the interesting facts about the human muscles I am aware of. If you know more please leave a comment!

Something else you should never forget is taking care of your muscles. Make sure you exercise, warm up before challenging your muscles and provide enough protein so they could recover from a tough work out.
