I am up early to crank out some projects, and then I am off to the airport for the ultra nerd-herder Experimental Biology conference in Chicago.

The good thing is that it is a short ride in the flying sardine can.

Just recently, I did a presentation in Costa Rica.  This presentation about fish oil supplements had 369 references on it.

For realz.

You may think that there is no way this next supplement would have more references, right?

Wrong!

And once again most everyone can benefit from it.

Plus it is based on a food.

Did you figure it out?  I gave you a hint in the subject line.

Yep, it is protein!   Great work!

I know, I know… that is not sexy at all.

Quite boring in fact.

I should really do something to make it sound better and explain how you can use this amazing new supplement to bio-hack yourself into the stratosphere by jacking up mTOR activation by 717% since we all know the best stats must end in a 7 and percentages never lie…

…even though a direct study probably does not exist.  Not even one on myotubes from a selective bred mouse strain.

Well, fug-get-a-but-it.

I suggest you do this instead.

Step 1 – Track Protein

Track how much protein you got yesterday.

Step 2- Compare

If you are were under 0.7 grams/ lbs, I would increase it to that amount.

Step 3 – Low?  Add more!

If you were low, then add more protein.  Simple I know.

How Much Protein Total?

If you weight 100 lbs, that is 70 grams of protein per day.

If you weight 200 lbs, that is 140 grams per day.

If you are a large mammal and not overly fat at 300 lbs, that is 210 grams per day.

If  you are Brian Shaw (Worlds Strongest Man) and clock in over 400 lbs, first I don’t want your grocery bill, and you are at 280 grams per day on the low end.

You get the idea.

If you are not at the minimum number (you can go over it), I would bump it up.

Step 4 – Supplement

This is where a protein supplement can be super helpful.

It is very easy to open the jar, drop 2 scoops into a shaker cup, add water, shake, drink.

Boom – instant protein for mad gainz.

Seriously it does not get much easier.    I guess you could hire someone from Craig’s list to come over and do it for you, perhaps.

Or volunteer for a research study in Dr van Loon’s lab where you get a nice tube crammed down your nose before bed and wake up to a muscle biopsy.

Which Supplemental Protein?

My favorite protein is from Driven Nutrition

Use the coupon code “DRMIKE” to say 15%.

It is seriously the best tasting whey protein I’ve ever had.  The Carmel Latte is outstanding.

If you want a bit more fat and carbs in your protein as more of a “meal replacement” I highly recommend the Pro-Fusion Seven.

Each serving has 24 grams of the world’s highest-quality protein from seven protein sources, plus a surplus of the amino acids required to speed recovery and initiate new muscle growth.

  • Fast Release Proteins: Whey Protein Hydrolysate and Whey Protein Isolate
  • Medium Release Proteins: Whey Protein Concentrate and Egg White Protein
  • Slow Release Proteins: Calcium Caseinate, Milk Protein Isolate and Micellar Casein

It also has Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) Oil for a healthy fat source.

My favorite is Cookies-n-Cream and I just ordered more 2 days ago.

Protein Power!
