    Protein consumption

    Primal Fuel
    My questions usually come in pairs, so here's a pair of pairs. Is it more important to consume high protein the day of training, or the day after? For budget reasons, I can only afford to go high protein about half the month. Second, can you still build muscle if you continue to fast after a workout? Anyone have any idea where I can did affordable packs of bacon in a reasonably large amount? And lastly, can you lose bodyfat and and muscle simultaneously, or are these mutually exclusive events?

    I'll just answer the first and last questions. Chicken, pretty darned cheap and high quality. I just recommend eating sufficient quantities of protein all the time, why make it complicated? If I'm in a rush then I'll have a protein shake or something.

    Yes you can lose body fat and gain muscle at the same time, however you need to have your diet well under control and genetics starts to play a major role. As well as where you are in your progress, if you're overweight and under muscled yeah it's pretty easy. If you are a competitive bodybuilder (i.e. close to you limits) then going to be much harder.
