Wanna build mass but will too much protein get me fat again?
Hey girls. I'm asking this question here because abviously I can't ask any of my guy friends because our bodies just work differently.
I've been hitting the gym every monday, wednesday, and friday for around a month now, and a few months before that I was going jsut about everyday but kind of fell of the bandwagon so to speak. In any event, I've been working my upper body everyday that I go, and so it gives my body a day to rest in between.
I've been told by my guy friends that after every workout, I need to take in a ton of protein, otherwise I won't grow. But I'm worried that if I take in too much protein and my body doesnt digest it, then it'll turn into fat because I have been told that by a few people.
So I'm kind of stuck as to what I should be doing. I can't really do alot of cardio because we all know the only decent cardio is swimming and I don't have access to a pool, and running but my hips, knees, and pretty much the lower half of my body is shot to **** from dancing. So since I can't really do alot of cardio, and my diet is really as good as it can get, what else can I do to prevent gaining any fat but keep building up the upper half of m body as much as possible? Any comments are greatly appreciated, thx
